Bloodbath 2

Kind of a challenging week this week past was: trying to wrap up the tedious production details on the physical portfolios Tidepool needs for going on the road, doing a shoot at a muddy power plant and then dealing with a babysitter who resigned after one day spent with my two boys. The email she sent to us was a keeper and will be memorable, but is disturbing when taken out of context:

At one point Eli went to the kitchen and got a fork and came after me with it and said he was going to kill me. Now I know you said that them talking about killing is something new, but I do not like it.


All of that aside, the week was made better by the arrival of this big and beautiful print, above, as a result of a complex series of trades, from nyc photographer Sarah Small.

Sounds like you have the beginnings of a screen play!
Sarah Small is amazing, thanks for the link.

holy cow-
i love sarah's work (and you got a fantastic print--which of your images did she get?)....and one does wonder how that chair got so bloody! thanks for introducing me to her work!

Hey Brenda-
I will take a cut of all commissions. Ha.
I traded her a dyptych with two pink images from Sex Machines, both printed side by side. One image was of a bed in a pink room, and the other was a portrait of a woman in a pink room that had a machine in it. The pinks were identicle.
Sara claimed it was for her pink bedroom, but it sounds like a stretch. You never know, though.
