For four years Justin Kimball (born 1961) accompanied his brother Doug, an auctioneer, into the houses of the recently deceased or dispersed. While Doug cleared these spaces of items for potential resale, Justin sought within them the evidence of an individual's life. Photographing -the smallest objects (a note, a box of hair pins, a stain on a pillow), - he reimagines their existence and relationship to their absent owners. -I use the camera's descriptive power and the photographic illusion of truth to create the narrative and inspire feelings about its subject, - he writes of these images. -The resulting photographs are my perception of what happened in those spaces: who lived there? What was hidden and what was seen?- Kimball's color photographs explore the minutiae of everyday life and contemplate our brief and humble legacies before they are cleaned up and cast to the wind. Beautifully produced, Pieces of String comes as a bound paperback held by a thick rubber band inside a wrap-around, board cover that features a tipped-on color image and printed staining effects that evoke the photographs' textures of wear and tear.
Exploring the documentary film, this book traces its development from the first film shot by Louis Lumiere in 1895 to the last shaggy-dog story (Nick Broomfield's TV film, Tracking Down Maggie), and the commercial success of Steve James's three-hour saga, Hoop Dreams.
Bagaimana mungkin aku bisa mengatakan aku percaya Tuhan, beriman kepada Tuhan kalau aku tidak mulai dengan jujur? Ini yang dikatakan lelaki tua dengan daun telinga kecil dan lubang hidung gede yang menyebut dirinya Ki Blaka. Lelaki yang nyaris tanpa prestasi apa-apa, yang ingin jujur dalam segala hal. "Musuh utama kejujuran bukan kebohongan, melainkan kepura-puraan. Baik pura-pura jujur atau pura-pura bohong." Ketika para Blakanis, sebutan pengikut Ki Blaka, menyebar, mulai terjadi perubahan: anak-anak sekolah tak mau nyontek, koruptor menceritakan secara gamblang apa yang dijalaninya, sampai dengan pengalaman pribadi perempuan yang pernah diantre. Ki Blaka yang tak bisa menahan pipis, dan suka pipis sembarangan, masih bisa bisa mengagumi payudara pengikutnya yang kaya, ayu, putih, jangkung ini terlihat berdoa dan berkata, "Saya tidak percaya doa, tapi saya melakukannya." Ini sebagian catatan para Blakanis, sebelum dan sesudah Ki Blaka terbang dan lenyap di udara.
