  • Sophie Calle nailed it years ago in The Hotel, Room 47, 1981
  • “On Monday, February 16, 1981, I was hired as a temporary chambermaid for three weeks in a Venetian hotel. I was assigned twelve bedrooms on the fourth floor. In the course of my cleaning duties, I examined the personal belongings of the hotel guests and observed through details lives which remained unknown to me. On Friday, March 6, the job came to an end.” – Sophie Calle

  • Here’s the start of a photo series I’ve conceptualized for SOU. What would this image look like for the Theatre Dept, the Art Dept, the Anthropology Lab? Stay tuned…
  • Many brands are up on this  Burning House troupe. For me, it never gets old. Portraits are my thing.
