In Brooklyn … Street Art by Artist Judith Supine

Some new photos of fresh street art by artist Judith Supine on Wythe Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We haven’t seen much from Supine in downtown Manhattan the past couple of years, so it’s really great to stumble upon this artwork in Billyburg.

800 Views of Airports

20140211-160604.jpg

We love this book of photographs by the renowned Swiss artist duo of Peter Fischli and David Weiss. “800 Views of Airports” is precisely that: A collection photos taken by Fischli and Weiss at airports visited on travels around the world throughout their decades-long career. The volume is the definition of coffee-table book. “800 Views” is textless. There are no captions, no labels, nothing to indicate where and when the photos was taken. This curatorial, editorial concision gives the hefty tome some mystique and only adds to its beauty. For the well-traveled, many of the airports may be easily identifiable — Tokyo Narita, JFK, London Heathrow, Schipol, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Malpensa — though there are a bunch of photos taken at an airfield that few would recognize, a place where de-commissioned commercial aircraft are put out to pasture.
