BluePrintReview: walls parallels shadows

the second part of the BluePrintReview in/stances went live this week

it's rather visual this time, featuring 3 photo series by Chris Nguyen, Steve Wing and Jane Hammons

the starting page of looks like the collage above and leads to the single pages

i am really excited how this issue turns out – i more or less put the pages together in the order they arrive here. each series is vivid, including multiple layers and angles of the world in just a few photos

a net of parallels
but what it striking and exciting: apart from "moments" / "instances", there is no furher theme, and of course none of the contributors knew about the others, and the images / themes they sent. still there is almost a net of parallels:

Chris' wall from Hue, and Jane’s walls from the States. and in Steve’s set of 6 photos includes a wall image, too, and ends with a reflective Buddha moment that again could relate to the Kitchen Gods under the Bodhi Tree. then there is the light/shadow structure in Steve's work, and like a counterpart twin, the park photo from Jane.

enjoy the moments and the unexpected parallels and counterparts ~

PS: submissions for the issue are open, next deadline is 5th of April, here are the guidelines.
