Restrepo is one of the many stories to come out of our endless war with afghanistan. The movie spends one year in the most dangerous valley in Afghanistan where death is a daily threat. It’s brutally honest, sad, and poignant. Go see it at your local art house theater.
I’m not usually a big fan of photorealism but these paintings by Lee Price are unreal!
Don’t you hate it when this happens to your desk. Too hard to get any work done with all the commotion. By Alex Varanese.
I’m dying to see Waste Land, a new documentary featuring photographer Vik Muniz. Shot over three years, Muniz goes to his native brazil to visit the worlds largest garbage dump to collaborate with the local trash pickers on a massive photo project. A few friends have seen this at film festivals and strongly recommended it. Who knows, maybe i’ll get lucky and get a press copy in the mail (hint, hint, hint). Keep tabs on the movies website for release dates. Looks like a good one.
Phyllis Galembo‘s photos of witch doctors, medicine men, and shamans are creepy, beautiful, and haunting all at once.
