My good buddy Rush Jagoe has just started scanning the film from his cross country bike trip. If Robert Frank and Sam Abell had a photo child, his or her photos might look very similar to the images from Rush's journey. Subtle, sophisticated, insightful.
Keep an eye on his blog, Living My Songlines.
Feels like a long time ago...

Well, in a few days I will be heading to DC to intern in the Photo Office at the White House. My good friend Johnny is interning there now and will be finishing up in a few days. His family generously offered to let me stay in their house for the Fall. I'm really excited to get started. Can't wait to see how things have changed since I was there in the Spring of 2008. Not excited to commute and wear a suit to work everyday. I hopefully will be bloging throughout the journey.
I already miss that hippie castle. Many good times.
All the best.

Oil drilling in Ohio began in 1860 and for a period, the state’s oil fields were the largest in the world. According to Dow Bowman, owner of a drilling company in Ohio, “The oil and gas in southeastern Ohio and eastern Ohio over the last 100 years has been drilled. We are going back through old fields now trying to squeeze out any area that may have been missed.”

Marta Hewett opened the Marta Hewett Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1990, which was devoted to the exhibition of rarely seen works of contemporary studio glass. Her childhood in Columbus, Indiana initiated a love for the visual arts. As a student, opportunities to explore New York City's endless offerings of museums and galleries had a profound influence. Marta returned to the Midwest in the mid 80s to complete her B.A. in painting at the School of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning, at the University of Cincinnati. Her career reflects her belief in the benefits of visual arts in everyday life.
At the new gallery location in the Neusole Glassworks complex in Cincinnati, Marta will continue to emphasize and encourage the patronage of works by selected, emerging and established artists.
Her artists include greats like Stephen Powell and Michael Aschenbrenner.
