While shooting a SpaceX launch earlier this week in California, NASA photographer Bill Ingalls had a bit of a mishap with one of his remotely operated cameras (luckily the memory card remained in tact). http://bit.ly/2J2Kcex

    A NASA photographer caught the perfect SpaceX launch shot. Then his camera melted
    For photographers, the Robert Capa adage "If your photographs aren't good enough, you're not close enough," is a guiding principle. For NASA photographer Bill Ingalls, it can be updated to, "Even if your photos are good enough, and you're photographing at a safe distance, your camera might still be toast."

“Every life is in many days, day after day. We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants, old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-love, but always meeting ourselves.” -James Joyce, Ulysses Bloomsday is less than a month away! We can't wait to celebrate James Joyce's masterpiece with you on Saturday, June 16.

    Bloomsday 2018
    Join us on beautiful Delancey Place for the Rosenbach's annual Bloomsday celebration on June 16, the day the world celebrates Leopold Bloom's fictional journey through the streets of Dublin, as imagined in James Joyce's epic . Lauded as the greatest novel of all time, Ulysses has been called everything from masterfully moving to hilariously obscene.

92nd ANNUAL solo exhibitions Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains on view through August 4, 2018. Please note, we are closed Saturday, May 26th. We wish you an enjoyable and safe holiday weekend! All of the projects that I work on start by walking with a camera, at first as a means of journaling….When sorting through the images later, these landscapes change shape and take on new meaning, as I forget what existed outside the frame. These instances of daydreaming and the fog of memory are mirrored by my use of mixed media and the flaws intrinsic to the photographic medium - light leaks, lens flares and multiple exposures. Screenprinting over a photograph distorts the realities of the landscape, but it also meshes with the initial observation to create something new. These combined mediums and disparate pairings point to the fallacy of photographic documentation and hint at the subjective ways that we perceive and record the actual world. - Jacob Koestler Image: Jacob Koestler, Russian Satellite, from the series “The Natural Bridge”, 2013, Archival pigment print http://printcenter.org/100/92nd-solo-shows/

Population growth slowed in most cities of more than a million people, except San Antonio and Philadelphia.

    Quest for Affordable Housing Drives People Away From the Coasts
    The high cost of housing seemed to sap Americans' taste for coastal cities last year as cities in Texas and Arizona gained more population than New York City or Los Angeles for the first time in a decade, according to census population estimates released today.

Read Dracula in real time.* May 24. Everybody wants Lucy. On this date in Dracula, Lucy Westenra writes to her friend Mina Murray about the three men who have proposed marriage to her . . . all on the same day! Dr John Seward, “the lunatic-asylum man, with the strong jaw and the good forehead,” was first. Lucy turned him down. Next was Mr. Quincey P. Morris, “the American from Texas,” whose proposal included comparing Lucy to a horse in harness with him. She turned that one down. Lastly, Arthur Holmwood, the polished, soon-to-be Lord, came in and swept Lucy off her feet. Obviously, she said yes to Arthur, but Lucy did wonder to her friend, “Why can’t they let a girl marry three men?” *The novel, Dracula, is comprised of journal entries and letters, all dated, so throughout the year, we’ll be posting a day-by-day account of the plot of Dracula. Follow along with your own reading and feel free to leave comments below (no spoilers for those who may be reading for the first time).

92nd ANNUAL solo exhibitions: Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter are on view through August 4, 2018. I am inspired by ideas of the infinite in relation to sublime subjects like hurricanes and other weather patterns. The patterns allow me to closely examine a subject that is so much larger and powerful than myself. Essentially, the act of printing the same patterns over and over again ties in to my exploration of natural phenomena. As humans, we can try to predict and understand these storms, however we will always fall short due to our own limitations….As I print, cut, and stare, I find myself sitting in the middle of each disturbance, rearranging pieces that no longer fit together. - Julie Anne Greenberg Image: Julie Anne Greenberg, System XV Nicole: “Defied Forecasts by Steadily Organizing”, 2018, Screenprint with paint and pigment on cut and reassembled paper on built panel http://printcenter.org/100/92nd-solo-shows/
