Some of my pictures from Iquitos are currently on view in an exhibit in Lima, Peru about the Amazon called De su largo llanto se formó el Amazonas. I’m hugely indebted to the curator, the painter Christian Bendayán for organizing the show and providing these installation pictures. Wish I could go.
Here, in Spanish, is the text that goes with the photos:

Hobbs retrata a los jóvenes de Iquitos y sus espacios urbanos. El joven de espaldas muestra las huellas dejadas por la ligas de vinil de las sillas o mecedoras, y sobre el barro se encuentran las marcas del paso de los autos; ambas imágenes evocan la presencia del caucho en la vida contemporánea. Un joven que muestra abiertamente las cicatrices producidas en un accidente de motocarro, se muestra como analogía actual de la imagen de uno de los últimos indígenas Iquito, inmortalizado en la escultura de Felipe Lettersten, hoy casi abandonada en el “Museo Amazónico” o “Casa de Gobierno”.

"What often guarantees the authenticity of a photograph is the way that the camera automatically records all that is before it, indifferent to what is significant or insignificant. It presents a world in which there is a background of information beyond the photographer’s intention. For example, you might photograph your lover on a beach but it will be the additional presence of the infinitesimal sand and the fine chaos of the clouds that will help render it factual. The secondary information guarantees the primary"

I was in Los Angeles last weekend to see family. There is a lovely vista point in Palos Verdes (one of many) that looks back east towards the city. I wanted to make a long exposure after dusk and I snapped this pic while waiting for the sun to go down. Right when it did, the wind kicked up and ruined my shot. I think it’s Karma telling me to stop taking 8x10 selfies.

I spent most of last spring bidding on and losing auctions for a Jobo drum to process my 4x5 film. I finally won at the end of the school year but then was gone all summer and so finally now, am I going thru this backlog of film that goes back almost exactly a year.
