The list of show I want to see grows!

Frederick Sommer at Bruce Silverstein

Best known as a photographer, Sommer (1905-99) never restricted himself to one medium, and this sprawling, museum-quality survey shows how closely his photography, drawing, painting, and collage work were linked.

The photographs cover a lot of ground: desert landscapes, portraits, and nudes, pictures of cut-paper constructions, found-object assemblages, and Dubuffet-style abstractions conjured from smoke on glass or paint on cellophane. Hung alongside spidery drawings or more fluid, densely worked paintings, a wall of these images could spark enough energy to power the gallery. Collages of anatomical etchings underline the physicality and continue Sommer's focus on decay and mortality.

Michael; Son of Ansel; Adams

Today I discovered that Ansel Adams has a son, here is a video interview with him, he has lived an interesting life, though photography does not seem to feature heavily in it.

Cooliris

I recently rediscovered cooliris, it is an interesting way to surf the net with either a broad brush, or a more focussed approach.

Key word searches can turn up strange results, but it's a pleasant way to scour lot's of information quickly.
