If we choose, we can live in a world of comforting illusion 4/1/2013

Back out West

Getting it in with Nature

and this…

This show at the SFMOMA is so good that I left half way though. I felt overwhelmed really. Garry Winogrand was exceptionally gifted.

This is Doug Rickard speaking at SFAI (Author of the awesome site American Suburb X). This was a bizarre experience. It is apparent after attending this lecture that Rickard’s work raises a range of questions and draws out heavy emotions. I just wished that some of the attendees would have allowed him to finish instead of being so quick to attack, apposed to discussing like mature grown ups. People want to hear what they want to hear and what you say may not be that.

Someone needs attention…
