Reflections - The Stories We Tell Ourselves

While my friend Anjuli Liebowitz was a fellow at the Met Museum photography department, she invited my Dad and I to visit her and to pull out whatever we requested (within reason). Dad asked to pull August Sander, Carleton E. Watkins, Walker Evans, Edward Weston, William Klein, Daido Moriyama, Bill Brandt, Nicholas Nixon, Robert Adams, and Joel Steinfeld.

I asked Anjuli to pull some of the first X-Rays ever made. The ones that crippled people from the radiation. We speculated that (hopefully) these were of cadavers who never knew what the damage would be. What a magical moment to see your bones… only to to have your hand shrivel days later! They are available digitally on the Met’s website, but these x-ray images were taken by Dad at the Met. And my hand I snapped with my cel phone in Wassaic. Hi brow, low brow.

It got me thinking about what we contain in our bodies - life, and the inevitability of death. And that’s OK. It’s all in there and there’s not a damn thing we can really do about it.

During the summers when we’re in Wassaic I’ve been lucky to work with the master printers in the Wassaic Project print shop. Jack, Dante, Michael, Scott, Colleen, Keely and Zack have all been incredible mentors and guides. THANK YOU! <3
