FotoFocus Biennial

Selfie

The monthlong celebration of photography that is the FotoFocus Biennial has brought lots of great things to town. In addition to John Water’s talk, there are lectures and exhibits throughout downtown. One particular gallery is dedicated to the work of Vivian Maier, who I’d been enamored with since the story of her street photography emerged somewhat recently.

(She was a nanny in the Northeast and Chicago who always carried a camera and snapped photos, but seldom if ever shared her work. Discovered after her passing, the photographs have emerged along with a documentary of what can be pieced together of her life.)

I love her stuff. I almost recommend trying to see the exhibit before watching the documentary.

Our small group wandered the city and popped in a few of the other exhibits and enjoyed them muchly.

Grace and a David Benjamin Sherry print

Grace! Stand in front of that David Benjamin Sherry print.” I pleaded.

I asked Dan to do the same.

Matthew Porter

My personal favorite were the Matthew Porter prints above. I need to research how the images were made. I’m guessing photography and CGI.

Moiré

I was a little obsessed over this Moiré  pattern caused by the overlapping metalwork of this staircase.

I don’t know who is behind this Free Slave Animals van, but they’ve got a keen sense of design.

John Waters

John Waters and me

John Waters made me snort out loud more than a few times last night. It resonated through Memorial Hall, but luckily everyone else was laughing so hard it didn’t matter.
Two things:

  1. I wish I had a transcript of the evening. Water’s delivery is quick and dense with beautifully twisted humor.
  2. I want to raid this man’s library.

Tip of the hat to the FotoFocus Biennial for bringing Mr. Waters to town, and these fellows below for the fine evening.

Farm Day 12

Scarlet prints a tee

There are many favorite parts to Farm Day, the yearly event of family and fiends that convene out in Oxford on Tom and Wendy’s farm. I actually like the days leading up to it as it forces Tom and myself to clean up the studio, likely the cleanest it will be any day of the year.

Folks gathered, shared side dishes and desserts, fished in the pond, wandered the trails, ran around the yard, caught up on life and printed a whole bunch of shirts. Good times. (I should note: The bunny shirt design was made by John Lanzador and it was superfun to print.)

Mini Billboards

My normal route to work is under construction, requiring me to find new ways of getting around. So I’m seeing new things.

At this stoplight in Miamitown, someone got enterprising and turned their field into a cash generating business.

I can’t look away.

Crosley factory

This huge factory in Camp Washington used to churn out Crosley radios from 1930 until 1960. For 12 of those 30 years, music, comedies and soap operas were broadcast from the eighth-floor studios of WLW, then the nation’s most powerful radio station. (Fix it up or tear it down, Cincinnati Enquirer)

I used to live next to this building and I always hoped it would find new life. There are rumblings that it might make the transition to apartments. That’d be pretty darn awesome. The light streaming into those places would be dreamy.
