Stranger - a project by
Jamie House

“My practice focuses on producing imagery using mail art and pinhole photography to examine the role of the `stranger` in society and why we are interested in people we don’t know. These images show chance encounters and intimate double exposure visual portraits of people who have not met in person and only meet by the mediated gaze of the pinhole camera. This relates to the way we interact remotely with others in the information age.”
“These images were a result of me sending a call out over the internet for people’s mail addresses. When I received the participant’s addresses, I sent them a pinhole camera disguised as a parcel and asked them to take a portrait of themselves and send it back to me. Then I took a portrait of myself. The resulting imagery is a ghostly spectral trace of two faces with their physiognomic features merged.”

Autism Speaks Light it up Blue global event on 4/2/10 was so wonderful for me. The support brought tears to my eyes. Friends sent me pictures of the Empire State building light up. Everyone was dressed in blue. There was wonderful coverage on the news, Bob and Suzanne Wright with Dr. Cece McCarton raising awareness.

Dr. Cece diagnosed Cole very early, thank goodness and she has been an incredible support to me personally since then.

Bob and Suzanne Wright have had a huge impact on raising awareness and raising funds for research since their grandson was diagnosed with this mysterious disease. I had the honor of meeting them and getting to thank them personally. Families touched by autism are very lucky for their passionate support.

So many major buildings all over the world where lit in blue light showing support and awareness, including the Empire State Building, Radio City, Rockafeller Center, JFK control tower, Niagra Falls, Fenway Park, Wriggley Building ...and so many many more... not the least to mention Ralph Lauren Rhinelander Mansion on Madison Avenue. Thank-you Ralph who has been an incredible support.

What a wonderful day.

Drawing Lessons at The National Portrait Gallery - London

No photos please.
Had to take these. Forgive me.


I caught Bill Cunningham at a private party at International Center for Photography.

He was hiding, in typical Bill fashion (no pun intended) between a post and the wall where he was steadying his camera.

His bike was probably locked out front on the 6th Avenue.

This is a beautiful documentary on The Firefly Press in Somerville Massachusetts.

I didn't take this picture of Carter, but this is quintessential Carter!!! When I have time I'll find a picture I took of her. This one is from "The Selby"

Todd’s first book, "The Selby is In Your Place", will be released in May 2010 by Abrams. CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!

I took this picture of Daniela when she was designing F'08 (I think it was) - she turned an antique lumber jacket upside-down and made it a truly chic jacket with a large portrait collar.

J A N U A R Y 2 9 – M A Y 9, 2 0 1 0
This is the first American museum exhibition devoted to the work of the reclusive and mysterious Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý. Now over eighty years old, Tichý is a stubbornly eccentric artist, known as much for his makeshift cardboard cameras as for his haunting and distorted images of women and landscapes, many of them taken surreptitiously. Tichý began photographing in the 1950s, in part as a political response to the social repressions of Czech communism. However, it is only in the past five years that his intensely private work has gained public attention. The exhibition, organized by ICP Chief Curator Brian Wallis, includes a number of Tichý's homemade cameras as well as approximately 100 of his photographs

I heard some people say he is a letch
and some people say the work is being
overly hyped and exploited.
I don't feel that way. I'm so inspired to
see his work and to hear his words and ideas.
I LOVED the the work.
I felt a wonderful love of women.
I'm glad it has been brought into the light for all to see.

It’s really worth looking beyond “Whistler’s Mother”. He did so many landscapes, cityscapes and portraits. This one brought tears to my eyes when I saw it at the Frick.

Did you know, if you put an egg in vinegar for 48 hours the shell melts away. Then the membrane holds the shape of the egg and it's like a rubber ball.
