Evans and Cheever

Bedroom in Boarding House on Hudson Street, Residence of John Cheever, New York City 1931-33 from the Met by Walker Evans.

Cheever later writes salaciously about a rendezvous between the two men that may or may not have happened between them. Here is an excerpt cited in James Mellow's biography on Evans.

Anna Foxes

Inspired by 5B4's post about the British Photographer, Anna Fox's new retrospective and catalog to accompany the show, I discovered the work of another artist, Anna Fox.

Artist's Statement:
Hello my name is Anna Fox. This piece I would like to submit in the antiracist t-shirt
contest is called America's Girls. I did this piece on my computer. Thank you for giving
me the chance to do some art and at the same time get to show my feelings.
Even if I don't win the contest I hope, at least, one person can look at my piece and have it mean to them what it meant to me when I created it!

The internet is a wonderful place.
