Stills from the book: Hollywood Frame by Frame: The Unseen Silver Screen in Contact Sheets, 1951–1997, by Karina Longworth.

In the pre-digital era, contact sheets offered a quick, visual summary of a photo shoot, and photographers, editors, and even subjects would make marks directly on the printed contact sheet pages to signify which images should be printed (and which absolutely shouldn’t), how they should be cropped, and whether or not more shooting was needed. Once a frame of film was exposed, it couldn’t be deleted, so contact sheets always include “mistakes”—moments which the photographer, or the subject, may not want anyone to see. Many of these contact sheets tell stories about how star personas are invented, while also exposing aspects of the individual celebrities’ personalities which the entire industry of celebrity myth-making usually tries to squeeze out.

Dentro -tan alrededor- de ella, corre un río, resplandeciente, que acaricia y adora cada curva planetaria de su cuerpo, sin juzgar y sin degradar, de la más pura honestidad que hay, como sí fuera la última vez.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

True quest is about agency, and the capacity to be driven past one’s limits in pursuit of something greater. It’s about desire that extends beyond what we may know about who we are. It’s a test of mettle, a destiny. A man with a quest, internal or external, makes the choice at every stage about whether to endure the consequences or turn back, and that choice is imbued with heroism. Women, however, are restricted to a single tragic or fatal choice. We trace all of their failures, as well as the dangers that befall them, back to this foundational moment of sin or tragedy, instead of linking these encounters and moments in a narrative of exploration that allows for an outcome which can unite these individual choices in any heroic way.

Metaphors of Xicanas en El Barrio, video collage, 2014

A short “collage of thoughts” as Itzel Alejandra called it, collaborate creativity. A walk through Gaspar Enriquez’s exhibition, Metaphors of El Barrio. 

Artists: Itzel Alejandra and Maribel Falcón

A short on the El Paso Museum of Art current exhibit. An art review with a personal voice. Inspired by Gaspar Enriquez’s portrayal of himself and his community, one we related to instantly. Art is subjective, never objective. 

A beautiful video collage piece by my friends itzelaalejandra and mariexmachina called Metaphors of Xicanas en El Barrio.
