MUSIC» The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.
MUSIC» Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!
For his second LAS showing, the Dutch photographer has put together a collection of images from his series of "fading graveyard" portraits, all shot in Portugal during 1998. "Often there is no more left of the portraited person than one eye or even less and, very unusual to the way graveyards look in the northern parts of Europe, the portrait is displayed at the toe end of the coffin, which can still be seen behind the glass plate of the pile-up wall," explains Thijssen of the series.
The photographer's archive contains several hundred of these graveyard images, collected while traveling the globe, and many of the portraits can be found on a commercially available CD entitled "In Peace." In addition, a wide assortment of images are filed on his André Thijssen Visual Communication website, and a selection of a dozen Thijssen images can be found inside and on the back cover of the English magazine Creative Review's 20 year celebration issue.
