A New Section: Heap

-

I've added a new section to the site which I am calling "Heap". Heap contains a large number of images, roughly selected. The idea is that I can add to it easily without having to edit selections down, which is hard for me. Heap prioritizes quantity and quick viewing, and I realize it definitely isn't for everyone. Aside from viewing a grid of tiny images, you can move your cursor over an image to view a medium sized version, or click it to view a large one.

For a long time I have had the idea to include a really large number of images as well as intentional selections from that pool, but for now here is the many-images part. Heap currently contains 800+ images from the beginning of 2014 onwards. Most of these are from traveling to Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Albania, and Montenegro between leaving Victoria and settling in Toronto.

I've also decided, at least for now, to have these images included in the Random Pairs pool, which has the side effect of increasing the number of possible pairs from 300k to 1.3 million, which may or may not be a good thing.

Additionally I've updated the front page of the site so that every section has a preview image to entice you, and converted the sidebar navigation to a header, which might make better use of space at some screen sizes.


Bagrocks in Papersafe

-

Bagrocks (which happens to have been recently amended) appears in the latest issue of Papersafe, which surrounds the theme of "memory".


Random Pairs

-

A few weeks ago I added a new page that displays random pairs of photographs from the rest of the site. When viewing click the page to see a new pair. You can also click the link icon to recieve a link which will return to the current pair.

I first made this for myself as an editing aid and have found it really useful to see photos together that have never met each other.

Specific Northwest

-

The excellent new Balacade album Specific, Northwest was released a little bit ago.

Balacade is the musical project of my good friend Andrew Reynolds and this is his best release yet. You should definitely take a listen, you can preview or download it for free here, or check out his website.

The album packaging features two of my photographs and if you like it you should buy a physical copy for only five dollars.

Last year, I made a video for a song from his last album: Ghost Car

Book Cover

-

A photograph of mine is on the cover of the Italian translation of a novel by German author Daniel Glattauer.

The German title is Gut gegen Nordwind (Good Against the North Wind), and in Italian it is Le ho mai raccontato del vento del Nord (I've never told of the North Wind).

It is a love story told through emails. It is published by Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Editore, a publishing house started by the political activist Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, who was the first to publish Doctor Zhivago after discovering the manuscript and smuggling it out of the Soviet Union.
