Brian W. Ferry’s series Home via Barbara-Rose Pierre Paul. Brian has an wonderful eye – I find that his photography has a weightlessness  to it that keeps it apart. And this series really illustrates the disciplined thoughtfulness that Ferry embodies. Every glass, every spoon, every detail is carefully thought-out.

i thought a lot about “home” and what it means to me. i’m very conscious of the things i choose to surround myself with at home. and no matter where i live – various apartments, different countries, different cities & neighborhoods – there are certain meaningful things that i’ve collected along the way and these items help to create a “home” wherever i am. so i removed the items from their natural environment and photographed them as still-lifes. the process was almost like taking inventory of the items, as if i am about to box them up and move somewhere else.  i really enjoyed working on this one.

    Hi Kate,
    I just read your fab newsletter and found out about this photographer. I like how simple and candid his work is. Thanks for sharing!

    Good news, Robert! And you were very gracious. A class act. Haven’t yet seen any words from the other poet on that weitsbe. I will be checking in there periodically throughout the day to see.

    J’adore aussi la préparation du bain, mais une fois dedans, au bout de 3-4 minutes, j’en ai marre et je sors. En revanche je reste longtemps, très longtemps sous la douche au grand désespoir de ma petite puce qui ne trouve pas ça écolo (ce qui en passant me fait bien rire, sachant que ses douches sont encore plus longues que les miennes.)

    naan payanpaduththiyu sol: macrievk. Not psycho.Psycho can be used for a variety of persons like caste and religious fanatics and sex mainacs.Mavericks only for genuises,scientists, creative artistics, and sometimes, common people. Their behavior in certain areas of thinking is beyond the comprehension of man. Their imagiation and work is not destructive.But the imagination and working of the mind of a pshycho like religious, sexual and caste fanatics is always destructive.Honor killings in Northern States is a recent example.Jo Amalan Rayen Fernando
