"Who's buying at this point?" Chadwick asked while viewing Richards' story on a Mississippi nursing home. "No one," Richards answered. On his stirring series about emergency workers in Denver, Richards acknowledged, "It started out as a magazine assignment and no one would publish it."- from Photo District News Online

Bill Allard in the crowdJune 7, 8 and 9 Charlottesville was awash with photographers. It was wonderful. Singular experience to be in a room with thousands of people, sitting still, looking at images. For three days, the harvest of observation took center stage. Further, the observers were observed. A role reversal. Celebration of images, recognition of image makers.
Observation makes for a lonely life.

Blue Run, Black Snake
Talked to Emma last night, she'd been walking in the wilderness for a few days, lost her way, back-tracked via her footprints in the snow pack, crossed the US/Canada border, returning to the beginning. I've been missing posts, engaged with projects that demand attention. Like Emma, I end back at the beginning.
In the darkroom, blackdog, darkly.
