Something to Dream About



Sometimes those of us in the fine art photo world forget about the simple visceral pleasure a sunset snapshot can bring.

This one came into my e-mail box calling for applications for Guesthouse Basel - a collaboration between e-flux and St├Ądelschule, Frankfurt - a free residency for young artists, curators, writers and gallerists. The residence will be located in close proximity to the Art Basel fair grounds and will run from June 15 through June 19, 2011.

Guest residents will be provided with basic accommodations (hammocks), shared bathrooms, common work room and breakfast. Residents will be expected to help run the guesthouse. The reception area of the guesthouse will be the site for public programming developed by the residents.

To apply, send a short bio + 500 word statement of intent to guesthouse@e-flux.com.

I'm not sure the beach is provided, but the dream is free!

I've been taking photos for years, and although I always think sunsets are so banal and cheesy, I just can't help myself, and always end up with one of those feel good/relaxing/end of a good day, photos.
