Two days ago, a book titled Uta Barth: The Long Now arrived in the mail and it is truly amazing. Uta is one of my favourite artists.  I'd love to know... who is your favourite artist?

  10. These are very atmospheric photos. They seem mystical and a little scary. When I look at the photos, I wish my couch, drinking tea and reading a good book. Thank you for sharing.

    Have a nice weekend!

  17. something about this quote, coupled with these misty, magical photos leaves me aching... or yearning for something i can't quite name. it's like that moment, before necessary tears fall. when the room is silent. when the world just sort of stands still for a moment.
