Lars Tunbjork, 1956-2015

We love this guy’s work; the sensibility seems to fall somewhere between Lee Friedlander’s and Martin Parr’s.

Not atypically, this got posted about a week later than it should have been, and Time Magazine scooped us, but since our respective readerships don’t overlap significantly, here’s a link to that item: http://time.com/3819762/lars-tunbjork-obituary/

Requiescat, Stan.

Lewis Baltz, 1945-2014

“Being a White Anglo-Saxon Straight Male, I brought a certain ethic to my job, trying to give a good day’s work for fair pay. So, I always took it seriously, and did it as well as I could. But it was never near my heart. I was always an artist who supported himself by teaching.” Unknown

“It might be more useful, if not necessarily more true, to think of photography as a narrow, deep area between the novel and film.”

images “This was the richest, most powerful country in the world, and what did it do? It made shopping malls, tract houses, industrial parks…” http://bcove.me/z4z4byh1 Unknown-1 “…I never had much confidence in art that was scolding people. I don’t want to say that late Capitalism is wrong and that we shouldn’t do it. It’s more interesting to plant doubt in people’s minds…”

“Photographers are victims of paradox, tracking the impermanent to make it permanent.”

Dust Is Bitten Again

“After 75 years of business it is with a heavy heart that we announce our immediate closing in the United States (our European stores will continue). It has been a joy to share our passion for photography with you all of these years. We’ll miss each other and we’ll miss all of our customers. Thank you for everything.”
