MINUS MANHATTAN

My name is Chase Turner and this is my Tumblr blog.
I do creative strategy at Tumblr.

  • South Central Dallas by Laurisa Galvan. 

    The photographer writes:

    South Central Dallas is about an inner city urban area in social isolation. I was told not to go there. There is a taboo; ordinary people stay away from that area, and the people who reside there seem to stay within their territory. The area is described as dangerous, both by residents and outsiders; it seems exotic. A place where the rules, to a certain extent, do not apply. It is a place people want to see on television, but they don’t really want to be there. It is a place that can be easily ignored. It’s streets do not sleep; day or night there is always something going on.

    I really dig this work - her words match exactly how I felt looking at the images (before reading what she wrote). These thumbs don’t do it justice, go over to Fraction Magazine and check out the rest

    This permanent installation by two Berlin-based artists is in Texas (it’s marvelous, no?). I kind of I want to be in Texas at SXSW right now even though I am having a splendid road trip. I should stop checking Facebook/Twitter/Foursquare/Tumblr/Everything because it seems as everyone I know is in Austin.
