Young collectors and exuberant night lifes
The first one talks about Jennifer Schwartz, who owns a gallery in the westside of Atlanta. She has started a crusade to encourage her generation to collect art, and especially photographic work. “Collecting art, Schwartz observes, is not in young people’s mind. ‘They care about the image they put together and they care about the cutting edge of hot new things, being original, but nobody is telling them that there is a better way…[My question was] how to make collecting cool.’”
The other article covers the recent work of photographer Forest McMullin on sexual fantasies and BDSM lifestyles. Not exactly what you see in your everyday’s life but quite interesting. “The result is a series that does not leave indifferent. ‘I had a broad range of reactions, when I was showing my work,’ explains McMullin. ‘Some people were very uncomfortable, and some were fascinated. No one expressed to me outrage or repulsion. Discomfort, definitively; fascination, definitively.’ But, he said, in any case, it always started a conversation.” Find out for yourself.
