Sheila by Tommy Roe

William S. Burroughs Sings

William S. Burroughs Sings at UbuWeb Sound. "...After a while, it wasn't enough to just listen to Burroughs read his own works, with increasingly elaborate musical backings, but to hire him to perform on other people's recordings. And that is what we have here: not Burroughs' own releases, but his various miscellaneous appearances on other bands' songs. Having Burroughs perform your music gave you instant hip cred, and gave a Bill a paycheck. He was a rock star to rock stars. William S. Burroughs died in 1997, at age 83."

Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Early Prints

Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Early Prints at Edwynn Hauk Gallery. "...Originally trained as a painter in the studio of the Cubist artist and sculptor André Lhote, Henri Cartier-Bresson turned to photography out of frustration with his early painting. Inspired by his interaction with young members of the Surrealist movement, Cartier-Bresson recognized photography’s ability to 'trap life' instantly. When he was twenty-four, Cartier-Bresson acquired a hand-held Leica camera, which would accompany him for the rest of his career. The Leica became an “extension of his eye” and enabled the artist to combat the 'formal and unnatural behavior' of those who were aware of being photographed. Cartier-Bresson fully embraced the freedom and anonymity that this small camera gave him."
