March Inspiration

March for me has been a month of inspiration, of a little more downtime than usual, and a struggle against the last bit of winter. I’ve been shooting a lot of work over the last month, involved with a project about women, and feminism, some personal family stuff, and then just average life, starting a new project and finishing up some wedding work and what not but mostly one thing has led to the next, as life does, and I feel the urge to tell you all about where it is coming from. Okay.   So I read this excellent blog called Explore which is a smaller/shorter version of Brain Pickings (which is also excellent). And this iconic image of Inez Miholland on a white horse marching for Women’s votes in the US, showed itself in the feed I read pretty much every morning I don’t need to be somewhere early. I thought the photo was striking, and decided to open trusty wikipedia and do a little more research.7736af96227ac418f7e3a4667a435106  This article led me to this article  which led me to a movie called Iron Jawed Angels which led me take some pictures of local self identified feminists, which led me to this book which sparked my interest in Annie Lebowitz, and then after watching a documentary on her and her work, I heard of Robert Frank looked at his work. Went back to Susan Sontag and read her book On Photographyread some Henri Cartier-Bresson, travelled into Toronto to see a lecture by Katharine Candow a journalist with a love for Vietnam speak in Toronto at National Geographic Live. And it has gone on for a month; self study, photography obsession, a serious slow down due to -20 temperatures in wedding season.   And then over coffee one morning, and a new set of books from amazon on my bed I figured. I’d blog about my March madness and it would save my best friends the agony of my rambles on photography philosophy and maybe someone on this big wide internet thing will find it interesting.
