aaah everything is weird and magical and beautiful and ugly. one moment you’re listening to beautiful music with beautiful people and watching shooting stars, and the next moment there’s a scream under your tongue and—fuck, there are so many cruelties in the world that you try to not let under your skin. so many little fights to fight with communities and friends and strangers, but before you know it you try to forget and you’re watching tv and drinking beer planning about where you’ll travel abroad, but the buzz becomes a certain buzz from the rattles and rings going on the world. how can i plan about living a life in europe or asia when there is so much going on in our world and so much going in our own individual worlds and it all then seems like a big tangly mess so you take out a cigarette and try and forget about all of it

Palestinians play in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Gaza City, August 29, 2014, days after a ceasefire was reached. An open-ended ceasefire, mediated by Egypt, took effect on Tuesday evening. It called for an indefinite halt to hostilities, the immediate opening of Gaza’s blockaded crossings with Israel and Egypt, and a widening of the territory’s fishing zone in the Mediterranean.

These are five of the seven pictures Dorothea Lange took of Florence Thompson in Nipomo, Calif. in February, 1936. Thompson was a pea-picker and mother of seven children. Ever since Lange took her iconic photograph of Thompson — shown above in the best-known form, and at bottom in un-modified form (note the thumb in the lower right) — she’s been known as the Migrant Mother. These are five of the seven known Lange photographs of Thompson. Each is in the collection of the Library of Congress. 

Tonight most PBS stations will premiere an "American Masters" documentary on the life and work of Dorothea Lange. Titled "Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning," the film looks at Lange’s life from her upbringing outside New York City, to her emergence as a major American photographer. Lange is best-known for her work chronicling the Dust Bowl era, but her oeuvre includes much more, including pictures of Depression-era labor strife, the internment of Japanese-Americans and early environmentalist documentary photography. Such was Lange’s stature that just after she died in 1966 the Museum of Modern Art devoted just its sixth retrospective of a photographer’s career to her work. 

Taylor was the lead guest on last week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast. She and host Tyler Green discussed the documentary and Lange’s life and work.
