PretentiousOKY

By Oky Díaz / January 22, 2021

Pretentious OKY is a project that was born at the beginning of 2020. Since I started it, I have taken it as a form of escape from the reality with which we coexist. I find everyday scenes that I want to appropriate, and my way of doing it is through the lens. I then transform…

OK, Stand Six Feet From Your Camera…

By David Skernick / January 12, 2021

I’m a nature photographer and I teach—the two are deeply intermingled in my life.

The Eyes Have It

By Steven Kushner / January 2, 2021

Like No Christmas Eve Past

By Steve Bennett / December 24, 2020

For years, I’ve taken a walk at dusk on Christmas Eve. This afternoon’s ritual trek through Cambridge and Somerville, MA was a stark reminder of how surreal the world has become. There was no trace of the festive energy that usually marks this time of the year, and few hints that I was passing through…
