Picture of the Week



To end the week on a more positive note, this photograph by Joseph Holmes was recently released on the website 20 x 200. For those who don't know about it, 20 x 200 is the brainchild of gallerist Jen Bekman and offers prints by a range of upcoming photographers starting at $20 for editions of 200 8 x 10s and going up to $2,000 for much smaller editions of large prints.

I wrote about Joseph Holmes when he photographed my desk for his series on work spaces and he's a frequent and therefore much appreciated commenter on this blog - so I was doubly pleased when I saw this charming picture. What I like about it is the naturalness of the photograph combined with the originality of the image. It's an everyday scene made fresh and resonant by a photographer on top of his game. (To appreciate it more fully do click on it to get the larger size.)

What a great site. I also like Joseph's "Yellow cabs" shot featured on 20x200. Such simple photos, but really engaging.

I love it... vaguely similar in quality and feel to Sid Kaplan's Urban Stonehenge series.

I like it too.

Somehow, I want to see it without

the streetlights and the cars.

One of the things that I miss about Domino magazine other websites they highlighted like the website 20x200. I heart 20x200, it allows people like me (middle class) to live with art.
