  • Before It Melted Away: A Look at Kara Walker’s “a Subtlety”

    Earlier this summer I had the privilege of experiencing Kara Walker’s “a Subtlety” not once, but twice.

    Christian Hopkins Explores Depression Through Concept Photography

    What started as an innocent Google search to find the origins of a pic I’d seen and fallen in love with on tumblr, turned into an ironically unhealthy fascination with the photography of 20-year-old Christian Hopkins. Ironic due to the subject matter of Hopkins’ photos which draws largely from depression, inner conflict and a multitude […]

The End.

“And now we wait.” Dr. Tobin quietly rested his stethoscope around his neck and met the gaze of everyone standing in attendance. Sentinels, somber and guarded within themselves, awaiting the finality of a moment they’d been steeling their nerves against for months. It was sunny that day. Not just blue and cloudless, but the the […]

#DearlyBeloved – A Timely Affair

“We couldn’t have taken a bus or train to get there?” “And what train was it again that runs from DC to Venezuela? Is that the red line?” “Fuck you!” “Just relax Jason, it’s normal to have a little bit turbulence on a flight. I can’t remember the last time I flew and there wasn’t […]
