Hastud Hunt Kraeytler celebrated the opening of the new Martin Schoeller exhibition Female Bodybuilders Wednesday night at their gallery. Schoeller’s best known works are close up portraits without the usual artifices or digital manipulations of media and fashion photography, previously exhibited at the gallery in 2006 (Close Up) and 2008 (New Work). These portraits are highly-detailed, colorful investigations of a face and the character that animates it. The subjects are celebrities and non-celebrities, including people who live outside of western culture, exhibited on a level platform, challenging the viewer’s notions of celebrity, beauty, value and honesty. The German-born Schoeller is influenced by August Sander, the Bechers and their disciples, as he investigates intensity and closeness on the one hand and leveling and objectivity on the other. He  continues their questioning of what the medium of photography can reveal about its human subjects in the present day when images of celebrities ... Read More

As part of the 30th Anniversary Celebration for the London book Review, a panel discussion was held with John Lanchester, Colm Tóbín, Mary-Kay Wilmers and James Wood, discussing the role of the Author in the Age of The internet. Developments in the internet and electronic publishing are revolutionizing the way books are sold and read. Not since Gutenberg has there been such a profound change in the transfer of knowledge in our society. What effect is this having on authors, is it changing the way we write? If the physical book dies out, how will this alter the way they write? These and many other questions were addressed as the panel examined the shift in media's medium and accessibility.

It's 12:30 and I'm standing in this friggin' tent which is somebody's. I just don't know whose.
There is free stuff: That's enough for me! And there's this computer right in front of me.
Oh yeah. and its hot in here; I'm talking at least a hundred degrees! I don't want to take off my coat cause it'll take me hours to put it back on again.
The Gap sucks!
They have to get the tent action right: It's either too hot or no heat at all.
I'll upload a pic of last night and one from today so you can see what I look like in 50 layers.

More soon-

   I loved this movie, despite all those nasty reviews by people who were looking for history lessons or brilliant dialogue, neither of which Alexander provides to any competent extent.

 

   For dialogue, I’ll stick to All About Eve, and for history, you might watch the many “who was Alexander?” specials on the History and Discovery Channels, google the guy up (there are over a million hits), or even read a book, of which there are many.   But Alexander is, when the monologues, the ranting, and the very confusing geography lessons move to the background, the most gorgeous “big” movie in years. Those deserts, those ... Read More
