I took a few pictures when Jon and I went away this weekend. The one above is a shadow portrait taken in our motel room.
We also went to the Williams College Museum. It’s a wonderful small museum that has traveling exhibits in one gallery (I’ve only seen one that didn’t speak to me). And they also have a great permanent collection that is constantly changing and always interestingly curated often mixing art from different periods and countries together.
Right now there’s an exhibit of sculptor MaryAnn Unger’s work. I haven’t seen her work in such a long time, I almost forgot about it. Seeing it again got me choked up. I can’t really say why it makes me so emotional. But it touches me deeply as if I innately understand it even if I can’t put it into words.
I took this self-portrait in a sculpture by Andrea Zittel called A to Z Living Unit (Customized for Patti and Frank Kolodny).
I always think of Vivian Maier when I take a picture like this. I don’t know that I would be taking them if not for her.
