two qualities that as of late, I have found within the photographs my friends have taken. Douglas Taylor traveled to Spain and returned with images that are extremely humble and wise beyond his years.
The Fader posted a really great interview with Sebastian Junger, who just released a film about the life and work of Tim Hetherington, in my opinion one of the greatest war photojournalists of our time. Which Way Is The Front Line? debuted on HBOGo today.
Thanks to Chris Cooper for the heads up!
"Exhibition labels and critical essays may contain information, even insight, but they never contain answers – they can’t, simply because art doesn’t do answers. Viewer subjectivity, varying contexts, and the passage of time each and together ensure that there will always be content beyond the prescribed reading of a given work, meanings that change continuously, vary from person to person, and needn’t have anything to do with authorial intention, institutional instruction, or even our own previous impressions of that work."

Schrek’s writing is honest, informative and extremely accessible. Highly recommended.
Working on an ‘article’ for Forage Press. Should hopefully be up in the next two weeks.
