Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #229

Start your week off right:

  1. If you need more ideas for dinner this week, check out Bon Appetite’s 40 Healthy Meal Prep ideas. The Zhug hot sauce is particularly good.

  2. A converted vans are all over Instagram right now as the best option of exploring the outdoors. Andy Cochrane argues that a pickup truck is the far better option.

  3. The Beauty of Science just released “The Arctic” showing in slow motion ice crystals forming.

  4. Austin Kleon talks about the benefits of boredom to your creative work. In short, you need space in your head for new ideas to occupy.

  5. Aidan Sartin Conte creates surreal photographs blending cityscapes with portraits. I love how he pushes the genre of photography

  6. “Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious, the recalcitrant, and the intransigent.”

    — Robert Anton Wilson

  7. Lens Culture reviews Alec Soth new book, “I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating”, which feels a lot more personal than Soth previous work.

  8. Martin Parr sat down with Bruce Gilden for his sofa series for a fascinating shop talk between the two photographic giants.

  9. Hannah Reyes Morales won the 2019 Visionary Award from the Tim Hetherington Trust. If you havent seen her work, I highly recommend it.
