life does not yield to death,
and vice versa,
A brief run through an intriguing group show entitled The Unphotographable, which was up earlier this year at Fraenkel Gallery (SF), from which a book of the same title was subsequently published. The show included works by artists such as Robert Adams, Diane Arbus, Sophie Calle, Liz Deschenes, Adam Fuss, Paul Graham, Idris Khan, Richard Learoyd, Glenn Ligon, Christian Marclay, Chris McCaw, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Richard Misrach, Gerhard Richter, Frederick Sommer, Alfred Stieglitz, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Wolfgang Tillmans.
"I think these things are toxic, especially for kids…they don’t look at people when they talk to them and they don’t build empathy. You know, kids are mean, and it’s ‘cause they’re trying it out. They look at a kid and they go, ‘you’re fat,’ and then they see the kid’s face scrunch up and they go, ‘oh, that doesn’t feel good to make a person do that.’ But they got to start with doing the mean thing. But when they write ‘you’re fat,’ then they just go, ‘mmm, that was fun, I like that.’"
