new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

the seven ages of the body

from the video description:

'dr john robb is an archaeologist and has been studying how people have understood the human body over the last 10,000 years.

"it may seem surprising to think the human body has a history. we take it for granted it's a material thing, it's just there"

over time his research shows the body has been seen and portrayed in different ways: the body as an animal, the body politicised, god's body, the body as a machine and as a simultaneous mixture of the above.'
