Via Aaron Rose

In 1965, Sol LeWitt wrote fellow sculptor Eva Hesse a four-page letter of encouragement, urging her to stop doubting herself and to simply continue making her work. Despite the fact that some would consider their friendship unlikely, the two sculptors were close friends and wrote to each other frequently about their ideas, work, and personal lives from 1960 until Hesse’s death ten years later. Often quoted, LeWitt’s letter has become a source of inspiration and a vote of confidence for many artists all over the world. 

For this film Aaron Rose worked with Tim Armstrong from Rancid to remake LeWitt’s words into a bold and boisterous song. This project started with Tim taking the text, and reconfiguring it into a formal song structure with verses, bridges and a chorus. He then put together a group of friends and let it rip in the studio. Once the song was done, they researched specific works of LeWitt’s that would animate well and passed them off to animator Thomas McMahan (along with a group of highly talented co-animators) to set them in motion. The end result is a lyric video like none other. A true testament to the brilliance of Sol LeWitt, sent through a 21st Century filter to create something that resonates as strongly today as the original works did when they were created.

OOOh! NIce little review of Jody Rogac’s exhibition PICTURES on FEATURE SHOOT. 
matte-magazine:

Jody Rogac’s portraits are soft in color and light but strong in emotional connectivity. Her recent exhibition “Pictures” at Ed. Varie in New York was a careful selection of sensitive portraits, each one a straightforward record of the interaction between photographer and subject. The images Rogac included in the show have a beautiful simplicity of form in common, an evenness of light, and a palette of chromatic grays mixed with skin tones. This agreeable grisaille wash is set off by the addition of monochrome images to the edit, which are equally careful of tonality. Rogac explained her elegant approach to me very earnestly, in just a few words- “I think a good portrait is one where the photographer has approached their subject gracefully and with respect.”
