I feel this photo by Cristina Carol.
I am a huge fan of Broke Didonato’s photography. Especially at this moment in time, I am really feeling her photography, as it sums up how this ‘social distancing’ makes me feel.
For 27 years, Deanna Dikeman took photographs as she waved good-bye and drove away from visiting her parents at their home in Sioux City, Iowa. She started in 1991 with a quick snapshot, and continued taking photographs with each departure. She never set out to make this series. She just took these photographs as a way to deal with the sadness of leaving. It gradually turned into their good-bye ritual. And it seemed natural to keep the camera busy, because she had been taking pictures every day while she was there. These photographs are part of a larger body of work she calls Relative Moments, which has chronicled the lives of her parents and other relatives since 1986. When she discovered the series of accumulated “leaving and waving” photographs, she found a story about family, aging, and the sorrow of saying good-bye.
I love this so much.
Brooke DiDonato has a photographic eye that makes me gasp. Beautiful!
This Beetle Puzzle by DOIY is stunning. Comes with a adhesive sheets to stick the puzzle pieces together to frame or display as art at the end.
I just arrived in London after a spectacularly heart-opening three days at the Do Lectures in Wales. I will be mentioning many of my experiences and people I met over the coming weeks here, one simply can’t wait: I had the incredible pleasure get to know Giles Duley, which I would now describe as the man with the biggest, most fearless, most empathetic heart I have ever met.
