Sometimes I only get the opportunity to learn about a photographer on the day he or she passes away. It’s a weird experience – discovering an artist’s life work because of their obituary. I’m both elated to learn about an artist I never knew existed, and at the same time, I feel sad I never knew about them when they were walking the Earth.
Thanks to BB Gun Press I was lucky enough to be at the sold out launch of Kristin Kontrol‘s summer tour at Baby’s All Right. Starchild opened the show- a charismatic musician paying homage to Prince. Next, Kristin Kontrol took the stage and the crowd buzzed with excitement. Lead singer Dee Dee (of Dum Dum Girls fame) was dressed in a silver space outfit and held the audience in the palm of her hand for the duration of the show. During breaks in songs, there was even silence as the audience marveled at Dee Dee. This is her first project after the end of the Dum Dum Girls.
Sorry that I only have time for a quick update today. I just got back from a weekend trip yesterday evening, and it looks like I’m going to cover a concert on Wednesday night! Today I’ve been doing some photography research…
I hope you had a great weekend! I had a restful one, the first in over a month, so it was a great relief. As my interest in street photography develops, I’ve been thinking a lot about purchasing the vaunted FujiFilm 100T, a camera a lot of street photographers have been talking about. Being ever-thrifty, I realized I should do a bit of research on YouTube and found the following two camera reviews. They’re good and, incredibly, the first review even takes place during a huge protest?!?!
Wow, what a week! I had a birthday on Wednesday and am SUPER ready for the weekend! Here are some tracks to help you get psyched! Have a rockin’ weekend! Gabriel
Hello readers! I hope your respective weekends were great! I’ve been thinking a lot about shooting black and white 35mm film and developing it myself. Then scanning the negatives.
