(via Turkey’s Dying Greek Press | Roads & Kingdoms) One day Minas will take over the paper from his father, but he fears he won’t have any help. “I don’t see that I have any other choice. I don’t want to let this paper go. I will continue and become the editor if necessary, but it will be funny, because it will be only me.

Dont Fuckit Up
Very thrilled to announce the opening of MOTOR CHRONICLES, an exhibiton of new photographs by Bryan Schutmaat and myself.
Join us at 7PM Friday night, October 24th, for the opening reception at farewell books.
Alec Soth: In terms of your work, there is this narrative element, this backbone. Like in your book you have these notes in the back, that gives a narrative scaffolding to the project, and I’m always battling with how much of a story to tell and I really respond to people that play with these issues. In your book, the main section with the pictures, it’s very musical, it’s very emotive, and then you get to the notes and it’s the narrative backbone, the tension between these 2 impulses is something that I feel in my own work.
Glen Erler: I always knew there would be notes and text to accompany some of the images; I did go back and forth with it, I didn’t know if I should have it there; it’s sometimes nice for the reader to make up their own mind. Even from a visual point of view, people asked quite a few times why I didn’t have the text with the images and I’ve always felt the pictures need to stand on their own, they need to be by themselves; if someone chooses to read about it, then they can. The images and text need each other; it was always part of the concept, but just not in the same place.
