flower portraits and photographs of childhood

dear subjects,

apologies for the lack of postage this week, but i will say that there is an exciting theme week in the works... more on that next week. until then, a few thoughts:

a while back, everyone was posting about Colin Pantall's Sofa Portraits of his daughter (which turned out to be--oddly, to me--controversial). i just saw on Colin's blog that he's working on a new series of his daughter interacting with flowers. the image below is lovely. the photographs i have seen so far are much much more sentimental than the Sofa Portraits. but i really do think that they are hitting on the same themes at heart about interior life, and observing children while they are turned inward. a few more are here.


he also posted a discussion about children as subjects of controversy (and more) between Sally Mann and filmaker Steven Cantor, who made the documentary "What Remains" about Mann. you can check it out over here.

p.s. wow. Alec Soth's blog archives are really gone.
