Summer Plans Slowly Materializing...
The Ball State University grant's office accepted my new proposal tentatively titled "VB: From Venice Beach to the Venice Biennale." I need to spend 10 weeks working solidly on a project and I'm counting down the days where I can start. April is always the most painfully slow month of the year in that regard. First up... creating a package for Ed Ruscha. This weekend!
In them meantime, I've been thinking on and off about the Postcards from America Project. From the website: "In the first of a series of trips around America, five Magnum photographers and one writer will be travelling from San Antonio to Oakland from May 12-26, 2011. Follow Christopher Anderson, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Alec Soth, Mikhael Subotzky & Ginger Strand on this unique documentary experiment: Postcards From America."
Not that I want to create another postcard project after last summer's extravaganza but it's a good series to follow in preparation for another road trip "back West."
