Brandon Thibodeaux spent eight years photographing rural communities in the Mississippi Delta - exploring race, religion and his own identity along the way.
Brandon Thibodeaux’s eight-year journey in the Mississippi Delta, which resulted in the poetic images of In That Land of Perfect Day, began with a personal quest. The Texas native, who is white, moved to small predominantly African American towns of the Delta where he didn’t know a soul — armed with a bicycle, a Mamiya C330, and a stack of 3×3 inch square prints.
The Sasha Wolf Gallery is celebrating the work and a new publication of Paul McDonough's New York Photographs, 1968-1978. I really enjoyed seeing a 1970's New York City with quirky denizens from decades past. Paul has an incredible eye for timing, juxtaposition, and the humorous moment, and this exhibition was a complete photographic pleasure.
I got sent to Miami for three days for The New York Times for a piece on the Miami art scene post Art Basel. I can’t really say much more than it was an amazing time, met some really chill people and got a chance to just wander and make photos I wanted to make. We don’t get to do nearly as much of that these days in our business, so I took full advantage of making wrong turns, finding random wi-fi spots (thank you Denny’s), and taking in some spectacular shows.
These are only a fraction of the 80-picture edit I sent, but I’ll drop a few more on this blog in a few days when I get around to editing my stuff from my random side-trip to the fashion district – which is about as close to painted wall heaven as I have ever been.
