For all life's mystery and beauty most days I just feel like I'm waiting for them to be over. Spring ball was definitely the best DoV I've been to in a while, everyone went all out on the costumes. I'm heading out to Steam Punk Worlds Fair in a couple of hours.

The new internship has been eating my life so I haven't had as much time for my work and editing as I'd like.

I've recently gotten back in to 2nd curtain flash, a new interest in capturing motion that was sparked by photographing Olympic fencers at Nanem's show room.

I did a lot of rear curtain work over the weekend at Dirve Thru Burlesque and DoV.

100 Project (or best of the worst)

100 Project
Originally uploaded by Anna Fischer

The 100 project's first permutation in my life was as a painting assignment back in SVA, so Professor Peter Hristoff gets 100% of the credit for inventing it. One of many great assignments I bemoaned at the time because making 100 paintings in a week is a lot of work.

I found that making 100 of anything in a week is a fair amount of work, although I certainly had the advantages of a quick medium over PK who had to do 100 drawings this past week.

I used the 100 project to give my self permission to take the kind of silly sentimental images that crop up from time to time in my work. To reduce the amount of investment in the out come of any one image (by reducing control over the outcome), increase ease of portability and just for fun I decided that they would all be iphone photos.

I had to take far more then 100 photos to end up with 100 even passable ones, but I think I got a few solid images out of the project and more importantly it kept me working and thinking about photography all week.

More projects are upcoming, and will be open to a wide range of media so drop me a line if you want to play along.

The Ground can find my wheels - going where the road won't dare

My third year photographing the Idiotarod, was great. It's an experience undiminished by repetition. Teams were a little thin this year with the snow, and late announcement of the race but spirts were high and I never fail to come away with a story or two.

I pray for you murderous, I pray for you well-honed and clean

Where are you wounded girls
With bruised faces and blackened eyes
Break open your glass doors
Welcome the whirling debris
Carve your name there
In the marble and concrete

Dorians Dorians Dorians

And I, I praise your name
I praise the taste of the world on my tongue
And I praise your righteous rising hate
I praise your soft lips
And I praise your revenge
I praise your tenderness and your skin
And I praise your pure incorruptible pain
