This is the place where I talk about things. What things? My unusually small chihuahua, or what I've bought for my apartment, or Providence, Rhode Island, or fashion in the 19th century, or books and writing, or anything else that comes to mind.

Room for Living
I moved from Provincetown, Massachusetts (a wonderful town) to Providence, Rhode Island recently. Providence is also a wonderful town. In only a few months, I have made many new friends. Everyone is friendly, warm, interested, open. There is a sense of community in the Armory District, part of Providence's West End. More on the Armory and West Broadway area later, but I wanted to talk about one of my new neighbors, Jordan Baumgarten. He just received his MFA from RISD and is an amazing photographer. Check out his blog here. He has a portfolio of photographs that document and question the constructions of masculinity within the sub-culture of American hunters, entitled "Average Americans of the Right Type". There are some beautiful and mind-blowing photographs in there.
This is a photo he took the other night in my living room. Absolutely gorgeous.

Good luck to Jordan! I am excited to follow this amazing photographer's career. I am even more excited to have him as a friend and neighbor.
