I use this space to share links and stories on photography, art, politics, design, advertising, technology, music, and culture. Essentially this is my Internet, filtered with the content I think is most relevant and/or interesting. I write book reviews as I read them.

I just got the Aperture edition of this book and it’s stunning. Real beauty comes out of the grit and filth that was the New York City subway system in 1980. If you’re looking to buy someone a photo book for the holidays definitely check this out.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, MTA New York City Transit employees partially dismantled R32 subway cars and loaded them onto trucks to transport them to the Rockaway Peninsula. The cars will serve as special shuttle trains that will travel along the peninsula. The shuttle will allow New York City Transit to partially restore A train service while crews continue to rebuild the A train’s tracks across Jamaica Bay. The tracks were heavily damaged during the hurricane.
