“You’re not projecting your emotions onto a two-dimensional piece of paper. Who cares about your emotions except you?”
I took a break from any organized photography class last year, for better or worse. During that time I went down a rabbit hole at Archive.org pursuing not only Ms. Abbott, but also Eugene Atget, Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans, after a casual comment by someone I barely know.
The work Archive.org site does is sacred and if you can spring a few bucks to help them out (especially during matching donor days) you should. Everything is free to read, listen and watch.
