I thought about linking to this collection, too (saw it on Boing Boing) but wasn’t sure what commentary I’d add. I decided agin it, figuring my meditations had been a little morose of late. I’m having a re-think, however.
There is an unusual frisson that these pix generate, though, isn’t there? It’s a little deeper than the adolescent “wow”, I’d say.
Yes, you haven’t managed to assume to yourself this luxury of linking without commentarying, have you? Well good, hope you never do. — ha ha. Anyway, would be great to read you thinking over these photos some.
I think you’re right, ‘wow’ wouldn’t come close here. Wish I had time to work out something about where these pictures take us. One thing I think I’d want to get at is that, vivid & close to life & living as these images mostly are, they’re so still, so static.
