Quote of the Week
I photograph because it’s my way of life. For example, I find it impossible to participate in a normal way when I go to a party on Friday or Saturday night, but when I participate through the camera, I feel fine. I have fun when I’m there with the camera so I don’t need to drink or dance.

Book of the Week: A Beautiful Catastrophe
by Bruce Gilden
A Beautiful Catastrophe presents more than 20 years of images taken by lifelong New Yorker Bruce Gilden on the city’s streets. Working in a close-range, confrontational style, Gilden’s approach brings New York into startling focus, revealing a strange but familiar dreamscape that echoes Le Corbusier’s famous description of the city as "a beautiful catastrophe."
