Photo of the Day

I’m off to San Francisco for the day to see the last weekend of  ‘New Topographics‘ at SFMoma; I’ll let you know how it is. Tonight is also First Friday. We’ll have to see if I have the stamina for that much art in one day. In the meantime I wanted to share ‘The Ruins of Detroit‘ by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre. These photographs show a sad, but still quite beautiful, desolation. I hate to admit they bring about a bit of a scavagering desire in me.

    Hmm..your SFMOMA link didn’t work for me, but I googled New Topographics. I see much of the work was from the George Eastman House collection. Interesting. The Detroit pictures are haunting, and so sad. All that former glory…gone!

    • Okay, fixed the link. The show was first put on by the George Eastman House and while walking through the exhibit I noticed that many of the photos were on loan from the GEH. It was rather fun walking around knowing that I might be the only person in the room to even know about the history of the George Eastman House let alone to have been there. And it was an AMAZING show, everything was so good, I’m so glad I went. I’ll post a bit of it tomorrow hopefully.
