1:33/ warm foothills/ alt-j

"when words become unclear, i shall focus with photographs. when images become inadequate, i shall be content with silence." — ansel adams

“nobody tells this to people who are beginners, i wish someone told me. all of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. but there is this gap. for the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. but your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. and your taste is why your work disappoints you. a lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. most people i know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. we know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. we all go through this. and if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. it is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. and i took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone i’ve ever met. it’s gonna take awhile. it’s normal to take awhile. you’ve just gotta fight your way through.” — ira glass

Made in China, a series by Lorena Turner. She uses her camera as if it were an archeologist’s tool, searching for proof of human signs on mass-produced items that are manufactured abroad and shipped to the US. Turner buys these mundane goods in US department stores, dusts them for fingerprints, and photographs the objects under black lights. This process allows the evidence of “someone’s touch” to emerge, possibly revealing the person involved in making and packaging the item.
