2017

Greetings.  We discovered that this weekend’s contribution to The Times PacificNW mag has been dropped, or rather postponed, for this January One, 2017 the annual “Pictures of the Year” (last year) takes every page, except, of course, those with the ads.    In its place we will assemble a miscellany: a  pile of oddities.

CAPITOL HILL BUS STOP at the Southwest Corner of BROADWAY and REPUBLICAN

In 1976-77 during my residency above Peters on Broadway I snapped two thousand or more photographs – both bw and color – of those waiting for a bus and/or boarding it.   It was part of an art in public places program, which, I think or bet, Anne Folke at the And/Or Gallery (and performance space, also on Capitol Hill) was behind.   Some of the photographs wound up on the busses – beside the interior ads.  (Or they might have had busses that were dedicated to the public arts project sans commerce.)

Doug McBroom with his contribution to MOMA'S Forsaken Art Collection. Occasion: 2013 founding of the Museum Of Forsaken Art with a banquet at Ivar's Salmon House. All those attending paid for their own salmon, and contributed an object of art to the collection, which now waits and calls for a new member to help build the web page sharing the estimated 1000 parts of the collection. Please step forward.

Please step forward.

One thought on “2017”

  1. Thank you Paul for these marvelous photos, with extraordinary people at the bus stop.
    I thought of your poetic and photographical walks in Wallinford while I was watching the Jim Jarmush ‘s movie “Paterson”. After, we all agree to say that your repeats in Wallingford are really moving because they exalt the daily life with art.
