I stumbled upon Justine Reyes's blog last fall. It was the inspiration for the creation of my own blog. I had never seen a blog anywhere like hers, and the format was revelatory. At that time she was in residency at the Center for Photography at Woodstock, and was working on and blogging about a series of lovely still lifes that incorporated objects that had belonged to her grandmother. Above are some of my favorite images from that series. I recommend taking a look at the rest of the series and her other finished work.
This past weekend Justine very generously helped me scan some of my recent work, and showed me all kinds of useful tricks. It was very exciting to see the images up close. This summer I've just been shooting so much, I can't even remember the last time I was in the darkroom. I realize I am going to have to spend some time now with post production- committing to seeing the images though, not just stockpiling contacts and negatives.
