Agnes B A long awaited tribute to Godard and to cinema's one of a kind, Anna Karina. If you haven't already noticed I'm a big fan of Godard...and all those nouvelle vaguers When I lived in Paris, I watched films nearly everyday sometimes 3 a day. As a result, the only French I learned was from cinema While I could repeat Karina's existential jargon in french ...and wear red stocking with a trench I could barely ask for directions on the street but I guess it was alright that way. I didn't mind being an outsider, nor an american tourist I had cinema, and that's all I really needed to enjoy Paris.
Agnes B has replicated the very dress I have loved for so long
together, they collect lots of great things art work by thomas campbell, kyle field and some other california artist friends
2 or 3 things...
They like the "SAFEWAY" sign that lights up at night I like the Walker Evans photograph, or is it from The Grapes of Wrath? They like the wall of salvaged wood pieces I like the 1940's style kitchen nook we always like succulents
"Much of the lumber used is sourced from other crafts people. Lumber such as that from the elegant neck of a violin that had its beginnings filling orchestra halls with sounds that soothed the human soul, or the wood from the baseball bat of a mothers' young son. All the material used to make these rings had a previous noble life before their transformation to a new life of beauty. I handcraft every ring to bring out the warmth and honesty of the wood. I endeavor to maintain the original spirit of any wood that offers itself to evolve into something new such as a wedding ring, anniversary ring or just simply a celebration of the nature of the ring."
I'm very modest when it comes to jewelry the only ring I wear and have ever worn is one I received while living on a ranch in Kelly, Wyoming The teton mountain range is hand carved across the band and meets in the back as one infinite line beautiful, austere it's a story in itself
David Creedon much like Robert Polidori's abandoned Chernobyl classrooms and crumbling Cuban interiors, Creedon captures the lingering mood of departure in Ireland's rural areas within his hauntingly beautiful photo essay: "Ghosts of the Faithful Departed"
I have always found tents to be so architectural simply zipping and unzipping a tent folding the flap, adding the mosquito net and adjusting the stakes suddenly changes the form and spatial composition of the tent
...and the variety of angles!
I love how all of this happens with such great simplicity and practicality
Beijing toys...just lying on the floor I don't think these were recalled though. No polly-pockets here. Just trains, plains and motorcycles with side cars; the good old stuff and quite possibly ...some lead.
