A quick shout-out to the Chicago photographers I met last night at the opening of Photocentric, the Minnesota Center for Photography's biennial. Brian Ulrich and I have both had work featured in Adbusters (although his photos have appeared in exhibitions and high-profile publications like Wired and the New York Times magazine as well), but it was through this blog that we met. A photography instructor at Columbia College, he's a skillful cartographer of contemporary culture (check out his series on thriftstores and big-box shopping). Also nice to meet his friends and sometimes collaborators Greg Stimac and Jon Gitelson.
