Those of you who have been watching my Twitter feed know that I’ve been dipping my toe back into the photoblogging pool this week. I’ve been itching to get back into it for awhile now and the New Year seemed a perfect occasion to resolve to funnel some of my creative energies off of Facebook and into a personal publication. I’m going to be showing photographers and promoting new projects too. More about that here:

One of my hobbies is sharing photo/media links so I’m planning to recommend those here like I used to do in the FlakPhoto Digest. Check these out when you have a chance — maybe over a hot cup of coffee or tea this weekend — and, as always, pass them along to friends who’ll enjoy them.

5 things I’m reading this week

  1. Joel Meyerowitz’s Career Is a Minihistory of Photography (The New York Times)
  2. LaToya Ruby Frazier’s Photographs Tell the Stories of Forgotten Americans (Artsy)
  3. Andreas Gursky on the photograph that changed everything: ‘It was pure intuition’ (The Guardian)
  4. Vivian Maier and the Problem of Difficult Women (The New Yorker)
  5. Early logging photos show the taming — and tarnishing — of Washington state’s old-growth forests (Timeline)

That’s it for now — Thanks for looking. If you know someone who’d enjoy this post, please share it with them. And if you’re a photographer interested in showing your work with me here, drop me a line. Best way to reach me is by email, which is hello@flakphoto.com. Happy Weekend! 📸
