The Fraction Holiday Print sale is now going on! Check out awesome photographs at http://fractionhps.bigcartel.com (at Fraction Magazine)
Lots of great work to choose from, and even one of mine!
Definitely check this out. I’ve been both participant and buyer in previous years’ HPS’s. David works overtime to present excellent work, and he treats the artists right.
This sale deserves your support.
Steak ‘N Shake, Frankfort, Kentucky, 30 July 2013.
My day job requires me to be up-and-at-‘em waaaay too early, so in the summer months I finish my 52-mile commute along this road, lined by a series of fast-food joints and strip malls, just as the sun is breaking the horizon. The light is often amazing, even if the subject matter isn’t.
This day it was overcast, and the sky was a giant gray softbox over everything.
I love the faint green glow of the fluorescent lighting beneath the awnings, and the candy-red, kitschy boring sameness of these – like most – fast-food chain restaurants.
On the other hand, they do make a helluva milkshake….

I think while appropriation has produced some interesting work … for me, the most interesting thing is to back yourself into your own corner where no one else’s answers will fit. You will somehow have to come up with your own personal solutions to this problem that you have set for yourself because no one else’s answers are applicable.Chuck Close (via photographsonthebrain)
I couldn’t agree more. Appropriation is what happens when Imagination’s back is turned.
