Has anyone else noticed how frequently the prime number 67 occurs as the resulting page count when searching Getty Images? Easily explained, no doubt, by someone with the appropriate technical wherewithall; I prefer to think of it as some kind of mysterious, ghost-in-the-machine-like force.
What are the chances of that? On the very day I throw together that last post this opens. I really had no idea until John at Eye told me. Spooky. Sadly, I'm not in a position to go (we were thinking we'd go somewhere other than London this year) but if any one else is going, has a camera (and the gallery allow it of course) please Flickr it for us less fortunates.
You probably won't be surprised to hear that I love collage (have probably mentioned it before). Even been known to dabble a little myself (this isn't mine by the way, even though it's a chicken). I was inspired largely by the 1997 MoMA exhibition of Hannah Höch's photomontages - that had quite an effect on me (actually 1997 was a defining year for a few reasons). Then there was the 1999 exhibition at the Whitney of work by Ray Johnson. That was ace too. And lately I've been thinking of selling a few things through Folksy (under a pseudonym - just for fun).
Then yesterday I remembered this great blog (which is where the chicken's from).
A week or two back Ben holidayed in Yorkshire, where my Mum comes from and where we spent many summer holidays. (Damn him, he's made me feel home-sick for old Blighty!) Whilst there he visited the Museum of Rail Travel at Ingrow. If you're in the area, drop in.
Been anywhere type-y lately? Send photos here. If you've already sent, many thanks - your stuff is queued up.
