Synaptic Stimuli. .giles phelps. GEOMETRIE VARIABLE. The new documentary Gloria: In Her Own Words, which airs this month on HBO, is ostensibly a celebration of the life and work of feminist icon Gloria Steinem.


The film, though, also offers a healthy dose of perspective on the Women’s Movement of the 1960s, what it accomplished, and what it all meant on a personal level to one particular woman, Steinem, who was already in her mid-thirties when she made the leap from journalism to activism. Steinem, though, quickly proved an influential, if polarizing, figure in the movement, and found herself not only wrestling with the long-entrenched ideas and political systems that were conspiring to deprive women of their rights and freedoms, but also with the media (which placed an undue emphasis on her physical appearance), her own ambivalence about stepping into the spotlight, and even, at times, with other feminists.

KONBINI Diary. \\\ Feature Shoot. “Art Photo Studio: Closed Due to Retirement, Toronto, Ontario, 2005” This book is my own march backwards into the future. It tells the story of an industry that was obliterated by the creative destruction of the digital age. This industry not only shaped my work as an artist, but also touched millions of lives with its magical products, helping define what the twentieth century would look like and how it will be remembered. The work presented here is a photographic survey created in a post-photographic age: the result is a book about what photography once was—as a technology, an enterprise, and an art form.— Robert Burley The decline of analog photography is an undeniable topic these days.

Burley traveled the world with a 4×5 field camera—which only seems appropriate—and recorded soon-to-be obsolete photo studios, labs, darkrooms, and even the occasional photo booth. “Employee Darkroom Area, Building 9, Kodak Canada, Toronto 2009” FOREVER AMUSED.
