Rita & Cora Aiming, Lucas Foglia

This week's news from:
 Shanghai Lady

This photograph by Lucas Foglia is called "Rita and Cora Aiming". It was shot in Tennessee 2007 as part of the series A Natural Order.The people depicted here have chosen to live off the grid in Southeastern US, some in despair and others in the hope of healing the world. I highly recommend going to see the entire original series now on display at Kunstmuseum Kloster under lieben Frauen in Magdeburg.

I took this snapshot because I thought the photograph was beautiful. I didn't realize how badly I had done so, capturing both myself and the reflection of the museum in the glass. Awful as it is, I decided to keep the photo as a memento. It never occurred to me that I might need it to illustrate a blog post.

Guns have always frightened me. As gang-ridden as my childhood neighborhood was, I grew up in the age of knives, not semi-automatic weapons. Cars were meant for cruising down Whittier Boulevard, for necking in the back seat at the drive-in theater or simply for getting from A to B. Vehicular manslaughter used to imply a terrible accident, not an act of will. These thoughts and more are the fodder for this week's blog post: Labels and Charlottesville.
