Posts with legs

I’m struck, looking back over these not-so-many posts, how many of them became articles, essays, and book chapters. So much for keeping my thoughts to (relative) haiku length.

• I gathered some of my thoughts on Penelope Umbrico in my essay for Exposure, “Abundant Images and the Collective Sublime” (pdf here)  published in their Fall 2013 issue. Pretty sure I have quite a bit more to say about her work — probably in my next book.

• I modified the “Abundant Images” essay for a talk at the Hasselblad Foundation in Gothenburg, Sweden, which was published in Broken: Environmental Photography earlier this year — and in that I began thinking more about Nate Larson & Marni Shindelman’s Geolocations series.

• In a bit of a fluke, I wrote an article about the gigapixel AWARE camera (pdf here), published in Photographies in April 2014. The article ended up circling back — maybe not surprisingly — to the “abundant” question.

• And I devoted a chapter to Joel Sternfeld’s On This Site series in my book Uncertain Histories: Doubt, Accumulation, and Inaccessibility in Contemporary Photography which will be published in 2015 by University of California Press.

Since my dad just retired from 48 (that’s right, forty-eight!) years working for NASA at Ames Research Center, maybe I should consider writing an article about that NASA logo design history.
