I’m always really amazed at excellent photography, probably because I fought for a “C” in B&W Photography while in design school. Everything was always blurry! Aric Mayer, on the other hand, is a Brooklyn-based artist with some stunning photos. There’s something about his collection of photos, titled A Wilderness My Own, that can’t keep me from looking them up in my bookmarks time after time.

There’s also some great writing on his blog, his article Aesthetics of Catastrophe, which tells of what he saw only days after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, was recently published by Duke University’s Public Culture.
