Since purchasing the 12″ of Batdance last week, I have developed a weird obsession with Prince’s contributions to The Batman (1989) soundtrack. Is it weird to dance to Batdance in your pajamas?

Andy Blake put me on to this Mark Moore remix, not sure if I like it more than the original:

I haven’t been to a wedding since I was seven, when I went to 2 in the same year. So I’ve only been to 2 weddings, but this year I have 3 to go to and I don’t know what to wear. I’m not a fan of dresses but I think I’d quite like to wear one, but dresses are boring, especially formal ones. My boyfriend suggested that I make one, and I realised I have a stockpile of African batik fabric hanging around that I could use. And that’s when I came across this…

Joseph Szabo

This afternoon I discovered the photography of Joseph Szabo, I have too many favourites but I’ve posted a selection below. You can buy his book Jones Beach here.

“Joseph Szabo has been photographing his teen-age students for the past twenty-five years, and has perfectly captured the ambivalence of that time of life. As a high school teacher of photography, he takes seriously their pretentions, passions, and confusions, and he knows intimately how students put on, act up, behave, and misbehave. As Cornell Capa says in his foreward, “Szabo’s camera is sharp, incisive, and young, matching his subjects. One can use many adjectives: revealing, tender, raucous, sexy, showy… in Szabo’s hands, the camera is magically there, the light is always available, the moment is perceived, seen, and caught.”
