Of Particular Interest

I found these two stories and thought you would love to see them.  The first story shows how the arts can bring people out from a less than perfect situation and help them express themselves.  And many states are cutting the arts in high school – go figure.  It’s a story from today’s NY Times about photographers who have lost one or more of their senses (sight, hearing, etc..) or a limb(s).  They are amazing photos!!  You can find the latest story, called “Stairways as Mountains” here.  It’s part of an ongoing series about the city imagined by those New Yorkers without certain senses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On a completely different note, this is from Corinne Vionnet called Photo Opportunities – Read the story here.  It is absolutely amazing (but shouldn’t be) how many people take photos of famous tourist attractions from the same vantage point.  The site has photographs that are layers of 100 photos of similar “photo souvenirs”.  I think they look fantastic.  Here’s a “photo” of the Eiffel Tower.
