holiday & vacation * part 3

write letters to your loved ones...friends, family, whatever...
and do it with care and extra effort
scribble, draw, doodle, put in a photograph or a ribbon

sooo fantastic to get in your mail!!

holiday & vacation * part 2

animals get hit by vehicles, especially during the holiday/vacation season, when roads are crowded with cars.

‘At Rest’ is a stunning, and at the same time upsetting piece of work by photographer Emma Kisiel.

She surrounds the bodies of animals accidentally hit with living and fake flowers as well as stone markers. Kisiel never moves or alters her animal subjects.
‘They are happened upon, visited with, remembered, and left to return to nature.’

vivian maier

Maier’s massive body of work would come to light when in 2007 her work was discovered at a local thrift auction house on Chicago’s Northwest Side. From there, it would eventually impact the world over and change the life of the man who championed her work and brought it to the public eye, John Maloof.
Currently, with roughly 90% of her archive reconstructed, Vivian’s work is part of a renaissance in interest in the art of Street Photography.
