Bing Wright (b.1958, USA) - Broken Mirror/Evening Sky (2012)

Broken Mirror/Evening Sky is a new series of striking landscape photographs by New York based artist Bing Wright. Departing from his usual pared down images in grey palettes, Wright offers us moving skyscape photographs of richly colored sunsets reflected onto broken mirrors. This new body of work marks his first return to color photography in almost a decade.

The images are meticulously constructed through a combination of traditional documentary landscape photographs and the subtle manipulations of an image in the studio. Wright photographs sunsets, then projects the images onto mirrors he has broken in the studio. The mirrors are small, measuring just 14 x 11 inches. The artist re-photographs the reflection and then enlarges the image into a large scale format. This beautiful series incorporates Wright’s recurring themes of abstraction and representation – a contrast he masterfully balances by grounding these shards of images into a bold structure. While more abstract than some of his earlier works, the composition carries a narrative that enables the viewer to collectively experience the beauty of the sunsets the artist has captured, while facilitating an individual interpretation of the emotion they imbue. We are presented with pictorial images, fragmented and in disrepair – a reminder that everything beautiful is flawed and imperfect. Bing’s signature large format lends these images symmetry and exact composition, giving them a majestic quality. (src. James Harris Gallery)

Seeing the Strokes and Childish Gambino at the Governor’s Ball and then seeing Taking Back Sunday and Circa Survive at The Great South Bay Music Festival. Tickets were cheap as fuck too. No matter what happens, I’m going to have a great summer.


Every year.

And what a beautiful night. That moon is turning the sky a beautiful shade. It is so bright. And the air is warm with a breeze. I feel like I’m in a novel.

The Prayer of Saint Ephrem

"O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power, and idle talk, but give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love to thy servant. Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own transgressions, and not to judge my brother, for blessed art Thou unto ages of ages, Amen."—- Despite my struggles with religion, this prayer has always been something I found a complete connection to. I feel it describes everything I long to get out of being a Christian. Every time I hear it or say it, I feel peace and a reconnection to my spirituality. It is beautiful.

Ohhh yeah.  Food porn.
