I draw on mirrors and windows

"[Helene] Meldahl said that in the mornings she used to leave small drawings on the bathroom mirror for her roommate. One day she turned a drawing into a selfie and posted it online. She enjoyed doing it, and people enjoyed looking at it, so creating more seemed like a no-brainer." (via)

"A Subtlety" & We Are Here

Why I Yelled at the Kara Walker Exhibit: "Anger shot up my body like a hot thermometer. Face flushed, I walked to the Mammy sphinx. Couples posed in front of it, smiling as others took their photos. So here it was, an artwork about how Black people’s pain was transformed into money was a tourist attraction for them... Something snapped...

445 Portraits of a Man

The Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University is exhibiting a collection of 445 photo booth photographs of the same man, taken from the Great Depression through the 1960s. When photography historian Donald Lokuta showed his collection of images of the man to Nakki Goranin, author of American Photobooth, it turned out she had seven pictures of the same man in her own collection. They are hoping this exhibit turns up someone who recognizes him and can share his story. More of the photos included in this Star Ledger article.

"This is like the opposite of Vivian Maier"

(Warning: most links contain artistic nudes) In February, Chicago curator Paul-David Young announced a gallery show featuring found, sometimes nude self portraits from an unknown artist. Claiming to not know the identity of the artist, Young romanticized the unknown origins of the photos, implied the artist was impossible to find, and drew parallels with the Vivian Maier story. After some light digging, however, Animal New York was quickly able to identify the subject as digital artist Molly Soda, who has a popular presence on YouTube and Tumblr. [more inside]
