Spotted on Erin Wylie’s blog, these haunting Brian Ulrich Copia photos of retail spaces and thrift stores. It’s currently at the Haggerty Museum in Milwaukee (which is a really nice building on the inside).

Jody Rogac

I met Jody Rogac last week on the set of the movie I was working on.

She was shooting behind the scenes and taking portraits. Her work is calm but intense, striking yet casual, honest and beautiful, quiet but memorable. I really love it.

Here are some of my favorite shots of hers, and so many more are on her website.

(love love LOVE this picture of our mutual friend Nancy)

you can buy her recent book, In Between, at Alldayeveryday’s online shop.

thriftstars

Friday, September 20th, 2013

The stars were aligned last week for us at the thrift store.

I found a Dior suit, YSL shoes, and a Gianni Versace Couture Blazer which I will, somehow, somewhere, manage to wear in some look other than this:

and Isaac found a black and white photo that ended up being a Becher. But, a lithograph Becher, so we’ll be keeping it.

Isaac has curated a show on our land in Highland Park.

Please join us on Sunday, August 11 from 6-9pm for the opening of A Round World Distorts a Flat Map, which is a group show on a vacant lot in Highland Park. The show, which includes works by Michael Bell-Smith, Jedediah Caesar, Jennie Mary Tai Liu, Shana Lutker, Nancy Lupo, Mungo Thomson and Isaac Resnikoff, is mostly invisible or at least easy to miss. Several of the works emerge at dusk. Some are fleeting, others buried. One never gets here at all.
The show takes its name from some found text printed on the map which Douglas Huebler used to document his 1968 site sculpture Windham College Pentagon. The map, which is titled “The Putney Countryside” includes the following warning:
WARNING
Roads are shifted, houses burn, are abandoned
or rebuilt; a round world distorts a flat map;
man’s memory is fallible; expect not exactness

When all is said and done we’ll record the whole thing (or some edited and annotated version of it) in a catalog including contributions from Whitney Hubbs and Lauren Mackler.

After Sunday, you can see the show by appointment only: 215-205-0617
