On the Block: Walker Evans, On the Block: Walker Evans,
From a striking series of photos of Mississippi ferries that Evans took in February of 1936. The Charles J. Miller (this picture) and George W. Miller were docked at Desoto Island. The scene, shot from the east side of the river, presents an entirely more bucolic picture than the Vicksburg street scenes that he would record during these same weeks.

Janne Lehtinen: Sacred Bird Janne Lehtinen: Sacred Bird
"Janne Lehtinen's Sacred Bird series presents quietly powerful portraits of the artist about to take off, wearing a range of peculiar apparatuses—attempts as absurd as they are stirring. His work is complicated by the fact that his father is a well-known glider pilot: these photographs are not just an homage to the myth of flying and to the landscapes to which Lehtinen finds himself tethered, but also an autobiographical investigation."—the publisher READ MORE
