This space is for the uncommonly creative individuals who have crossed our path and inspired us with their art and passion.
Our first acquaintance with beauty is in her dress of motley colours, that affects us with its stripes and feathers, nay, with its disfigurements. But as our acquaintance ripens, the apparent discords are resolved into modulations of rhythm. At first we detach beauty from its surroundings, we hold it apart from the rest, but at the end we realise its harmony with all. Then the music of beauty has no more need of exciting us with loud noise; it renounces violence, and appeals to our heart with the truth that it is meekness inherits the earth. - Rabindranath Tagore, 1915
L.A.-based filmmaker Austin Kearns is able to take the fast-paced world around him and capture that perfect moment of stillness. His photos feel at once intimate and mysterious. In this series, we see the American Southwest through his eyes. The photos have us day-dreaming about Expansionism iconography and its enduring power across time. Click to see the exhibit here.
