You Are (the) Here: London

This was the final city to be visited for this stage of the You Are (the) Here project. Although I had been to London on two previous occasions, I reasoned that a significant enough period of time had elapsed for me to be able to see the city afresh.

This is not to say that I did not…

Goal of the group is to organize pop-up galleries that "support work by artists and designers that have the body and adornment (though not necessarily the adorned body) as a concern and focus."

In a state of jazz
