Maybe I Already Said This...

...but this website is amazing. It's people watching-us maximus. Heavens. I could spend so many hours comparing and contrasting different years. Seriously. So. Great.

From the "about" section of the site:

Rotterdam-based photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek have worked together since October 1994. Inspired by a shared interest in the striking dress codes of various social groups, they have systematically documented numerous identities over the last 14 years. Rotterdam's heterogeneous, multicultural street scene remains a major source of inspiration for Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek, although since 1998 they have also worked in cities abroad.

They call their series Exactitudes: a contraction of exact and attitude. By registering their subjects in an identical framework, with similar poses and a strictly observed dress code, Versluis and Uyttenbroek provide an almost scientific, anthropological record of people's attempts to distinguish themselves from others by assuming a group identity. The apparent contradiction between individuality and uniformity is, however, taken to such extremes in their arresting objective-looking photographic viewpoint and stylistic analysis that the artistic aspect clearly dominates the purely documentary element.

It's Hard

I just saw Where the Wild Things Are. I cried. Some of the things in it were a little too raw for me, and they cut. It's hard to be a family.

The Summer's Results

Hi. This is the project I worked on over the summer. I am super pumped. It opens on 22 October, so if you find yourself in Provo, come to the opening!
And this guy is the artist I found and brought to the table. I'm excited that he got into the show. Come see what he does!

We're working on it. Thanks to Kayte, we have pickles curing under our sink. They're pretty.
I don't know if we'll survive the winter eating only homemade pickles, but we'll sure try.

What's Shakin', Mama?

This is what I do now:

OH! and I almost forgot:
