I don't know what it is but I have totally been on a photography kick lately. Maybe it is the influence of my CAMS (cinema and media studies) class or maybe it's all the pent up photography love that I have stored up. Or maybe it's because it doesn't take too much effort to just post pictures. Anyways, I am going to try to cut down and maybe do some other stuff. Give it some variation.
I first encountered William Gedney in the December (I think) issue of Dazed & Confused and I was totally blown away. Apparently he wanted to get some pictures of rural life so he asked to spend time with a mining family. He was sent to Kentucky and spent something like six weeks there taking photographs. The results were amazing. By the way, not all of these are from that trip, though the majority are.
Basically, I'm obsessed.
