Five For Friday #90

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope somewhere in the next […]

Exposure is a brand new platform that gives photographers the ability to build and share visual stories – they call them “photo narratives” – that can be much more engaging than a standard photo gallery. I admit that I was a bit skeptical about Exposure at first; after all, writing and photography are two very different […]

A Brand New Home: Vivian Maier

Vivian Maier, the enigmatic street photographer whose photographs many believe rival the likes of Andre Kertesz and Henri Cartier-Bresson has been given a brand new website and it’s fantastic.
