Pony Party:Your Morning Art

Usually, I post a montage of paintings, I thought I would go with a photographer today…

You can read about Manuel Alvarez Bravo here, a prominent photographer, perhaps the most famed in all of Mexico.

His approach was direct and he said this about his work….

I don’t look for anything. I discover things.” Over the years, he told students: “Shoot what you see, not what you think. A photographer’s philosophy should be not to have one.”

His images can be accessed here.

Another extraordinary photographer, Tina Modotti, reminds us of this bare truth….

I cannot solve the problem of life by losing myself in the problem of art

You can read a bit about her here.

This piece is composed by Michael Nyman who also did the score for one of my favorite movies: The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, not I should add recommended viewing for everybody.

Go forth and imprint on the world.

Please don’t recommend pony party. hang out and chit chat, and then read some of the excellent offerings on our recent and rec’d list.

    i find some of the best composition in movie scores… maybe the only place for them at this moment in time… love Cinema Paradiso, Henry V, Lonesome Dove… for a few… oh, Il Postino… and Amalie (spelling sucks this morning)
