Vivian Maier, elusive as ever

Vivian Maier was a prolific street snapper who took hundreds of thousands of photos (including self-portraits) in Chicago and on solo adventures around the world—and never showed the pictures to anyone. I reviewed a new documentary about her life and work, Finding Vivian Maier, for the Aperture blog.

The talented Arden Wray (my dear friend and official photographer) did a feature on me for her website Boots & Pine, a compendium of smart ladies in New York and Toronto. Thank you, Arden! I am in good company.

Shamus Clisset in Cluster Mag


Shamus Clisset, Orthographic Bender, 2013

I interviewed NYC artist Shamus Clisset for Cluster Magazine’s Parties issue. We drank beers in midtown (where Clisset lives!) and talked rendering. Nice guy, cool art. He’s in a reality-busting group show opening tomorrow at 601 Artspace in Chelsea, called Para-Real. See you there!

FYI, the Parties issue is now available as a free PDF. I highly recommend downloading it (not just for my piece): it also features such luminaries as Chris Kraus and Malcolm Harris, as well as party-hearty design by Montreal’s Jeremy Dabrowski. Jump on it, jump on it.
