On Tuesday, a bonsai tree boldly went where no bonsai tree has gone before.
Azuma Makoto, a 38-year-old artist based in Tokyo, launched two botanical arrangements into orbit: “Shiki 1,” a Japanese white pine bonsai tree suspended from a metal frame, and an untitled arrangement of orchids, lilies, hydrangeas, and irises.
I followed Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band around for a couple days when they were around my area last week(end). Here are a few photos from the shows I attended. Concert photography is always fun because of how much I love music, but I’d never consider myself a “music photographer.” I like when people are blurred and tend to be more interested in the lighting + facial expressions + movements of the band members rather than getting a nice, crisp photo. In my own work I stage the lighting and models so much, it’s kind of fun to go into a concert and be excited about the idea that I have absolutely no idea if I’m going to come out with anything worthwhile or not. Anyways, enjoy & be sure to watch/listen to them if you get a chance.
