Today's Inspiration- Ira Korman

by - Saturday, November 08, 2014

This week has been a great one for genoming (not that I got as much done as I wanted to, but I did see a lot of exceptionally cool stuff). One of my favorites was Ira Korman's Memento Mori series, in which the artist does extremely realistic and soft charcoal drawings of photobooth pictures found in antique stores and that kind of thing. Why is there nothing more magical than old photobooth pictures? I think it may actually be the privacy of a curtain and tight space brings out an intimacy you just don't see in other photographs. Anyway, here are a few of the photographs that are on display until December 20th at Koplin del Rio in LA, but you can see more at the gallery's website here.
