the photography:

Portrait #14 is michael

michael was kind enough to sit and chat with me today for a spell as we pondered such things as “stooping it” in kentucky, the gentrification of brooklyn, my father’s high school alma mater, my mother’s stint of living in the east village in 1968, the 2009 South by Southwest Multimedia Festival, raising kids in our neighborhood, and of course, everybody’s favorite topic, work. michael is a photographer in his own right and we chatted about film and darkrooms and the such. it’s nice to have people around who you can relate to when it comes to hobbies. it turns out that portrait #7 has known portrait #14 since 1993. small world eh?! well, for this midwest photojournalist, it’s really not that small. especially in the circles i have been running in recently. with the decline of the industry that i cover, people are dropping like flies. every day another email goes out about who is where and why and how and who isn’t around anymore. it’s sad. but to work with such a good group of peeps is great. and fun. SIDE NOTE: a new dawn has broken over IDMPhotography. hades hath turned to hoth and i have joined twitter. @IDMPhoto for those in the know. follow me if you would like to.

the music:
it’s been almost twenty years since nirvana cracked me over the head. i first bought this tape in eight grade, listened to it until i broke it, bought it again. this song starts off the second side of the record (if you bought it on vinyl or tape) and i always took it as a call to arms. with it’s first lines stolen from a youngbloods tune, this track is just so steeped in distortion and crunch that it chills me to the bone. “just because you’re paranoid,
don’t mean they’re not after you”. true kurt, true. i’m gonna always love this record for the time and the place. it truly is a great listen.
