“In a world where the 2 billionth photograph has been uploaded to Flickr, which looks like an Eggleston picture! How do you deal with making photographs with the tens of thousands of photographs being uploaded to Facebook every second, how do you manage that? How do you contribute to that? What’s the point?” – Alec Soth

I was first introduced to Judy Natal’s work when my college professor invited her to come sit in on one of our classes. She was living at the Biosphere 2 outside Tucson at the time, participating in an artist-in-residencies program she helped found. She gave our class a sneak peek of what she was working on, which turned out to be her series, Astral Projections, in its very early stages. I recently stumbled back into her website and was so happy to find new work. Her work explores the environment, harmful industrial impact and the impending future.

Read about Judy Natal’s work from when she lives in the Biosphere 2 in Arizona here.

You got religion

I suppose my interests are relatively the same now: to fix an image outside time – although I discovered after years and years of working that photography was akin to poetry. The best poetry communicates through mental images, much like an evolving set of photographs. And those images can be pushed and pulled to contain metaphor. They can be threaded together; individual connotations are woven to form deeper meaning. – Mike Lundgren, on photography from this interview in Fotografia.
