Wednesday This & That

Things to read & look at:

"Best Western" Vince Aletti's brief review of "Into the Sunset: Photography's Image of the American West" (@ MOMA through June 8, 2009) for The New Yorker.
The (catalog of the) exhibit is also worth a look and showcases work by Joel Sternfeld, Larry Sultan, Justine Kurland, Adam Bartos and others.

Philip Gefter's "Photography After Frank" published by Aperture.

Cara Philips essay for Lay Flat titled "The Secessionists Revisited: Artist Collectives in the Age of the Blog"

Amy Stein's blog post "Age Appropriate"?

Joerg Colberg's post "When does a shtick become a shtick?".
And Emily Shur's blog response/reflection "Shtick Shift".

And at last something simply magnificent to look at Arthur Meyerson's image "White Stallion, Mexico" which was PDN's Photo of the Day April 3, 2009.
And while we are on the topic of horses, some amazing images can be found in Tim Flach's monogram "Equus", which I acquired as used copy at the Strand today.

The above list very much reflects my current private discourse about curating, collaboration, itching for a visit out West, why I photograph horses, how to depict horses, getting older and how all of this fits together.
