A Whole Bunch Of New Stuff

I tried to upload some new stuff but it isn't working, so here's a rad quote by Alec Soth:

"Photographing people, with or without permission, usually leads to all sorts of ethical dilemmas. It is unavoidable. I do my best to be good. I ask permission. I'm honest about how I use the pictures and send everyone I photograph a print. But the truth is that when I take a picture of a person I am 'using' that person. They are becoming material for my work and I'm turning them into an object, a piece of paper, that is a commodity. It is all troubling. All I can say is that on the long list of ethical crimes a misdemeanors, photographing people in the name of art isn't the worst violation."
