Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #207

Start your week off right:

  1. I am not a baker at all. I have attempted to bake a cake before and failed miserably. This apple crisp recipe is simple enough that even I should be able to make it.

  2. You may not guess Eddy Chen is a classically trained musician when he makes musical videos with rubber chickens. Chen’s version of Pachelbel’s Canon cracked me up.

  3. Lens Culture complied 7 photographers who focus on adolescence in their work. I love seeing the difference among the photographers dealing with the same subject.

  4. Cristian Ordóñez’s “A Way to Disconnect and Connect” feels like imitate portrait of place (even though the place is never really mentioned). The portrait of the guy holding the dog is really good.

  5. “There are so many incredibly talented people out there who are afraid. I just want to shake them and say, we all are. Every one of us is. My sister Sally said it best: ‘Don’t let fear keep you from your destiny.’ So many people stay on the sidelines, and it pains me, because I want them in the game too. You don’t get to choose the music that life plays you, but you do get to choose how you dance to it.”

  6. April Soetarman created this weird side project where she hangs these metal signs in public. She is now launching a kickstarter to get a sign to hang up in your town.

  7. Jane Bown is another photographer who I recently discovered. She spent 6 decades for the Observer in the U.K. photographing all the big names. I loved her portrait of Sinead O’Connor.

  8. Ryan Holiday sat down with Robert Greene to talk about his new book, “The Laws of Human Nature”.

  9. Keith Macgregor has been documenting Hong Kong changing particularly through the 70s and 80s.
