what i've been reading lately
+ Can we just talk about Marla's trip to Oaxaca? *swoons* I'm in love. 
+ Meg and Carolyn both wrote some wonderful posts-Meg on the word "photographer", Carolyn on stereotypes-that made me feel...less alone in my frustrations i guess, if that makes sense. 
+ a heartwarming little interview about the importance of the library with Neil Gaiman. 
+ I loved having Katrina Sophia on Atlas Addict 's new snapshot section, sharing her photography-be sure to check out the other articles as well!  
+  As a journalism student, one of my favorite sites is Vox, which takes complicated, ongoing news stories and makes a set of "flashcards" that explains everything you need to know about the issue. I've been trying to educate myself on the U.S's latest immigration issue

artists and their studios | nicole


november 8//boston, ma//canon 5d

On a chilly Friday night, I stepped into the studio to watch my friend hone her craft. She moved with a swiftness and dexterity around the hot-shop, despite holding a giant rod with a sphere of molten glass at the end. Travelling in a routine pattern-over to the furnace, where she dipped the glass into the fire, back to the table where she blew into the rod, causing the glass to expand-she created cacophony of bangs and patters with a bevy of different tools, none of whose use i'm entirely familiar with. 

3D work has always fascinated me, simply because I don't have much experience with it-not the way my mind is wired. But to watch a small, dense bulb of fire transform into a delicate, paper-thin transluscent vase-essentially, to watch nothing become something-is so intrinsically beautiful. I loved watching Nicole and her classmates orbit around eachother in perfect harmony, and seeing the equal parts joy and concentration that flickered across her face-oh man, I loved capturing that. Such a pleasure, ms. Nicole. 

***before i go, just a quick note-for some reason, not only can i not see or comment on the comments y'all are leaving me-i can't see anyone's comments. i don't really know what's going on, but i have been reading all of your sweet comments and wonderful posts! (seriously, there's been some awesome reads recently)***

oct. 31-nov.11//amherst, boston ma, bridgewater ma//canon 5d

home is a funny thing. when i was younger, in high school even, i think i got wrapped up in the concept of only having one home. wherever you lived, or came from-that was your home. you chose one, and that was it.

the last couple of years though, have kind of changed that. i've moved from my small town to boston for a year, back to my small town for six months, and out to western mass for a couple of semesters. Three places in three years-three different sets of sidewalks and faces, four different rooms, wildly different ways of life-art school in the city, early bedtimes and a life as a working girl, and life among the trees. but they are all home, places that i that i know like the back of the hand, beds (couches sometimes) and people and landscapes and sounds and memories. and it's a really amazing, you know?

here is a photo dump of some of the moments from all three homes over the last couple of weeks-walks up in the meadows in amherst, studio visits and sleeping on a couch in boston, snuggling with my dog and reveling in the comfortable familiarity of home. all i'm going to say is, i'm a very lucky person. very very lucky and very very blessed.
