by Rebecca Anthony came into my world with an Oympus XA in his back pocket. It is a point-and-shoot film camera, with which he is adept at capturing magical moments in a sneaky fashion. It is also a camera that my dad had when I was growing up. He let me use (read: take over) … Read More

Field Report 029: Canoeing on the Liepnitzsee

September 19, 2011Berlin

Getting on a boat was one thing I had to tick off my 2011 list. I’m pretty sure that this particular day was it for summer—and even then we were pushing it. The lake, which just a couple of weeks before had been a cool escape from a hot and muggy August city, had turned … Read More

Uckermark

Schönermark and Zichow, Germany It is so easy to stay in the city and never leave. When I do leave, I am always amazed at how quickly the city falls away—it only takes about fifteen minutes on the train before everything looks different. These photos were taken less than an hour away from my apartment. … Read More
