diptych of Arnaud Maggs by photographer Jim Allen. 
I’m currently writing a paper about the function of memory within Maggs’ later, “archival” work. A short essay-writing break resulted in my discovery of these images. Love this artist and love these photographs of him.

Tomorrow, I’m on my way to Toronto; I’m looking forward to making some art while I’m there.

Thoughts of traveling & photography always bring me to thoughts of my series LATITUDE. For now, here are two older images from that series.
