GIVE ME THAT AIRBRUSH.
Exclusive, heartbreaking photos from the Lorraine motel on the day Martin Luther King died. (see more here)
Pictured: Theatrice Bailey attempts to clean blood from the balcony, hours after the 6 p.m. shooting.
“I don’t know if there were official people around taking notes and pictures and things like that. Nobody was there when we were there. And the fact that the blood was still on the floor, and this man is actually putting it in a jar … When you see a picture like that, God, it feels invasive.”
Saw this series at the Venice Biennale years and years ago… still thinking about them.
Roman Opałka was a French-born Polish painter who painted numbers. In 1965 he began painting a process of counting – from one to infinity. Starting in the top left-hand corner of the canvas and finishing in the bottom right-hand corner, the tiny numbers were painted in horizontal rows. As of July 2004, he had reached 5.5 million.
