I've been thinking about
Northern California a lot lately....
So when I saw this Ruth Asawa book
hiding on a low shelf I wondered
why the fuck I hadn't posted
anything on her yet.
but she is one of my all time favorites
and definitely an inspiration when it
comes to obsessiveness and the ability for tedious
traits greatly admire.
get into these shots, and expect more from
me on Ruth soon....
