THE SUNDAY FIND
An eclectic collection of interests, ephemera, art and obsession.

"I find her pictures otherworldly and mystic, deftly transposed from the subconscious ether. They ask me to look again and again, to reassess the many layers of what I think I have seen or remembered. With each visit I am rewarded with something new, and for the moment another small wonder untwined."
TSF on Tom Baril | The EA Journal
"This week in my classes we looked at the mighty Tom Baril and his two masterfully produced books – 'Botanica', published by Arena Editions in 2000, and 'Tom Baril', his seminal monograph published by 4AD in 1997. Both titles are lush and decadent, rich tri-tone reproductions of his gorgeous, gorgeous prints alongside elegant typography, each seductively designed and simply perfect."
TSF on Sheila Metzner | The EA Journal
"The Fresson print is a lush, secretive and exclusive process akin to the carbon print, first shared with the French Photographic Society in 1899 by Théodore-Henri Fresson. In the 1950s two of his sons opened a shop in Paris and evolved the process to render color. They continue today with the inventors' grandson and great-grandson now producing these distinctive prints. Rich and tactile with a soft elegant palette, they feature grain and texture that echoes the atmosphere of a pointillist painting."
The Best Photography Books of 2011 | The EA Journal
"I was introduced to Rinko Kawauchi's work by filmmaker and photographer John Decker. I love this book, for it's unexpected structure and deceptively simple presentation. I find her images, and elegant palette a pure, clean sugar high – just gossamer and considered. This book makes me smile, and I can feel the colors long after I have set it down."
