I present you with portraits of Joe Prince! They were taken for my color photo class with a gorgeous medium format camera. Second to last is my favourite.

EATING THROUGH LIVING - Jenny Holzer & Peter Nadin
amazing find from the library last night --
i was just perusing the stacks when this little guy caught my eye.
i can hardly find any information about it.
but it has some really interesting observations about people and some insightful truisms.
I could quote a million statements from this book. here's a few --
"I'VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT BRAINS, TUMORS, AND CAULIFLOWER LOOK ABOUT THE SAME AND I ALWAYS PICTURE THEM ON WHITE PLATES."
"IT CAN BE STARTLING TO SEE SOMEONE'S BREATH, LET ALONE THE BREATHING OF A CROWD. YOU USUALLY DON'T BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE EXTEND THAT FAR."
"THERE IS A PLEASURE IN STAYING HOME TO ADJUST EACH PHYSICAL DETAIL SO THAT WHEREVER THE EYE FALLS, THERE IS HARMONY. THEN YOU GO OUTSIDE AND DO THE SAME."

current favorite book in the library:
The Fold-Out Atlas of the HUMAN BODY
LOOK AT THAT BEARD/ STACHE COMBO!
i'm currently gathering information for a facial hair inspired zine.
Could they have given me a better obstruction? i think not.
I think this project will involve alot of interpretive doodling and texture.
