nonchalance during time of crisis

The day before yesterday I was reading about Edward Hopper, the painter who turned his back on the realities mid 20’s depression in USA to contribute to the time from a state of nonchalance.
Here is an example:http://www.moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?criteria=O%3AAD%3AE%3A2726&page_number=16&template_id=1&sort_order=1


Today, I came up with this. Wonderful works

"Documentary photography is becoming more illustrative as people become more familiar with photography’s limitations and vulnerabilities. Reality has always been interpreted through layers of manipulation, abstraction, and intervention. But now, it is very much on the surface. I like this honesty about its dishonesty. Every photograph has many truths and none. Photographs are ambiguous, no matter how seemingly scientific they appear to be. They are always subject to an uncontrollable context. This is a tired statement, but worth repeating."

Taryn Simon in an interview with the excellent critic and photography historian Geoffrey Batchen about her work for Museo magazine. (via greatleapsideways)

Make Your Move is an effort from Missoula’s Intervention in Action Project, a group of community organizations dedicated to ending sexual violence. Its campaign’s goals are to: 1) Engage men and women as allies to prevent sexual violence by increasing awareness and education about the dynamics of sexual violence and 2) Encourage bystanders to foster healthy non-violent relationships and interrupt attitudes, language and actions that support sexual violence.

"Lies I’ve Told My 3 Year Old Recently

Trees talk to each other at night.
All fish are named either Lorna or Jack.
Before your eyeballs fall out from watching too much TV, they get very loose.
Tiny bears live in drain pipes.
If you are very very quiet you can hear the clouds rub against the sky.
The moon and the sun had a fight a long time ago.
Everyone knows at least one secret language.
When nobody is looking, I can fly.
We are all held together by invisible threads.
Books get lonely too.
Sadness can be eaten.
I will always be there."

Raul Gutierrez, “Lives I’ve Told My 3 Year Old Recently” (via words-in-lines)

Hermione’s hair was bushy again; she confessed to Harry that she had used liberal amounts of Sleekeazy’s Hair Potion on it for the ball, ‘but it’s way too much bother to do it every day’.
Because there’s no such thing as enough love for Hermione Granger, here you go! This was so much fun, but I’m really mad that I couldn’t find a way to upload it without that nasty gif-format grainy texture…thingy.
It looks pretty on DeviantArt, tho!

Me on my 25th birthday.

I turned 25 this year and I had a bit of a quarter life crisis. I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing and I was looking for advice on how to navigate this crazy adventure that is my 20’s. So for my birthday I asked my family to write a letter to themselves…
