Candid portraits of passengers riding the NYC subway in the 1960’s, photographed by Enrico Natali
Welcome to the Millennial generation
It felt like I knew you; 2012 - ongoingI ride the NYC subway trains, usually in the evening when the seats are full. I focus on the shape of the space between the person sitting next to me and myself. I attempt to mentally and emotionally re-sculpt that space. In my mind, I reshape it- from the stiff and guarded space between strangers to the soft and yielding space between friends. I direct all my energy to this space between us. When the space palpably changes, and I completely feel like the stranger sitting next to me is my friend, I rest my head on that person’s shoulder…
Hear, hear for Tumblr.
Our Tumblrs, Our Teenage Selves:
"When I was a teenager in the largely pre-digital era, my bedroom walls were my Tumblr," writes Ann Friedman of New York Magazine. “They were plastered in pictures, mostly those I meticulously trimmed from mid-nineties issues of Spin and Rolling Stone: bands I was obsessed with, actresses whose style I wished I could imitate, the occasional photo of my friends. By surrounding myself with images of the people and things I admired, I convinced myself I was that cool, too. That I was one of them, that I could become them.” — Read more of “Our Tumblrs, Our Teenage Selves” in New York Magazine.
Interesting angle. People’s walls of cut-out photos they enjoyed from years and years ago could have been their version of their Tumblr back then. As a twenty-two year old myself, I have a different experience. In my very first dorm room in my college career, I had a blank wall as a canvas. I built a ten foot by four foot collage consisting of photos and quotes I thought were inspiring and embodied my personality. However, I didn’t look to the sources people years ago looked to. I looked to Tumblr. - PdeH @SFB
The Great Pumpkin House
Every halloween season, the house at 748 Beech Street in Kenova, West Virginia is transformed into the Great Pumpkin House. The owner, Ric Griffith and hundreds of other volunteers carve thousands of pumpkins for display at his home every halloween.
Beautiful photos. They make you think of what color really is, both in photography and through our own eyes.
