I have the opportunity to drive cross country to Memphis with a friend and I need cash for film, food, and a plane ticket home. I’m selling ten signed numbered 16x20 prints of this image hand made by me in the darkroom. Includes surprise smaller prints as a thanks.
I got a PDF from a French PR agency today. It was mostly boring, but it included this list of the 24 new galleries participating in this year’s Paris Photo. I’ve enjoyed looking up a couple so far (the ones from Buenos Aires and the one from Bangalore), perhaps you too will make some discoveries.

Yayoi Kusama, Walking Piece, 1966.
Photos by Eikoh Hosoe.
‘Walking Piece’ (1966) is a series of colour photo slides on a projector. It documents Kusama’s feelings as an Asian female artist in the male-dominated New York art scene. The pictures have been clicked using fish eye lenses with the harsh city landscape as a foreboding backdrop. Kusama’s figure contrasts against the scenery, she’s wearing a bright floral patterned Kimono, and holding an umbrella decorated with flowers, thus making her look alienated from the city.

In with the heavy hitters! I’m planning to re-work my text into something a bit longer at some point.
Wataru Yamamoto 1 will hold a solo exhibition of his work “Plane Tree Observations” at Yumiko Chiba Associates 2 in Shinjuku, from 7/26 – 8/10. There will be an opening reception Saturday, 7/27. Technically, I have “curated” this exhibit. Further information about “Plane Tree Observations” is available on the YCA site 3.
