I’ve decided that blog posting for me shall be like those gifts Boo Radley left in the tree for Scout: unexpected offerings that delight (hopefully). There are times when for a myriad of reasons the spirit does not move. Rather than make this my modern day confessional, there will be a silence whilst Look Underfoot is not underfoot – a welcome silence, it may be, but only temporary.
I got an email the other day from something called photography-now.net. I visited their portfolio sites and saw a great project I hadn’t seen before by Nadav Kander. This was not his portrait stuff but a project from the Yangtze River and maybe it’s old news to you, but I was quite taken with it. Though I did find the edit a bit long and redundant -some issues with sequencing. But the work itself had some nice surprises in a variety of situations and that dreamy air pollution really mutes the palette. The site itself was nice but I read through the fine print and you have to buy some gallery for like $50 to be featured, which I’m sure Nadav is not! And the site overall looked like it had some issues to me – but if you are interested in viewing this project on the Yangtze click here.
Belatedly, I pass on info about arts awareness month by fellow DC blogger Mike Licht. He writes about local arts funding opportunities here and might be a good bookmark if you are interested in more of that.
