My friend Natsumi Hayashi, Ms. Yowa Yowa Camerawoman, stopped by the show with a kind gift of a French book by Sophie Cavaliero entitled Révélations - Photographie japonaise contemporaine in which she is featured. I was quite surprised to see myself in a picture I helped collaborate with on page 73! 

Thanks Natsumi-san!

Vernacular Snapshot and Vintage Photo edition.

I’ve been building up my own vintage snapshot collection and once you get hooked on the weirdness and beauty in old photographs there’s no turning back.  I cannot overstate how awesome these tumblrs are.

In the order I discovered them:

1. joshuafountain.tumblr.com

 Intro:  ”sailors & soldiers & cowboys & circles & pyramids using tintype & cabinet card & early photography”   Suggested: THIS.

2. prole-art-postcards.tumblr.com

  Intro:Postcards & other horizontal images”  Suggested: THIS

3. anonymousphotograph.tumblr.com  (! ! ! ! !)

THIS  & THIS & THIS & WTF THIS & THIS and so many others I wore down part of my iPhone screen “liking” images.  Seriously, no how cool you think you are with a camera you’ll never be as rad as this guy and his Nikon.

4. photobigbang.tumblr.com   

All sorts of images-  some really weird stuff, and some wonderful snaps as well.  Suggested: THIS

5. sometimesyoudisappear.tumblr.com

Pictures that through time and the physical nature of prints somewhat reference that “forever empty” that Louis C.K. was talking about… getting a little dusty in here.

6.  colortransparency.tumblr.com

Intro: “Kodachrome, Ektachrome, Anscochrome. and generic color slides from the Pie Shops collection”

Last, but not least- the Japan Connection for this post:

7. filmrelichunter.tumblr.com

Intro: “I love to explore ruins and ghost towns in Japan. I found film negatives in almost all of those places. This is what i found.” 

It’s a brand new tumblr that will no doubt become incredibly interesting- can’t wait to see what else he posts.
