Manjari Sharma’s images of people in her shower are really compelling. There’s no exposed bits, so don’t worry about that.

Not the King Lear I Remembered

I went through a phase in college where I read a lot of Shakespeare’s plays. I always thought that Lear was one of my favorites, but I’d never seen it performed. I just watched the ’71 movie with Paul Scofield, and found the whole thing surprisingly slow and overly arty (to say nothing of overly […]

I Saw Tail Lights Last Night

I can’t seem to stop listening to “Great Expectations” by The Gaslight Anthem. I don’t know why. I mean it’s not horrible, but it’s not great by any stretch. From the corny fake record pops that a billion bands have done better (which isn’t saying much) to the forced lyrics, the whole thing feels kind […]

Blessing of the Animals

I headed over to Olvera Street today to photograph the annual Blessing of the Animals. There were a lot of little animals in a lot of little costumes. The procession went on for over an hour.
