Landing landmarks

Just a few fervent and loyal blog readers may believe that on this blog only flim-flam is fabricated.
That they are bamboozled into la-la land.
Shanghaied into Shangri-La for irrelevant revelations.

The truth though is that a hard working, concerned and devoted photographer has only as a side activity publishing a text daily.
It is in this perspective that one must read the blog.

One of the landmarks from that perspective out of which this blog rolls out is a publication recently in the New Yorker Magazine.

They say this about the blog author:

The twenty photographic sequences in this show were made between 1977 and 1982 while the artist was living in Baja California, which may account for their combination of conceptual smarts and trippy wit. Composed of between two and seven photographs, each piece finds Szulc-Krzyzanowski on the beach, playing with our perceptions. With the sea, the sand, and the sky as his serene back-drop, he levitates a stick, eclipses his shadow with his open palms, and shrinks a sand dollar. There’s nothing particularly rigorous or revelatory here, but the work is entertaining, ingratiating, and not without flashes of magic. Through Oct. 18.

Another recent landmark to keep in mind reading this blog is the fact that recently the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art in Sedalia, Missouri, USA has acquired for their collection the work of the person responsible for this blog.

And in between the landmarks every day the effort is made to come up with a new posting that is hopefully interesting, surprising and revealing.
