Ask me things
Photographer TJ Nelson Jr loves the unstoppable flood of images on the internet, but was finding it difficult to connect to photos on a screen. His desire to connect to photography in a tangible way drove him to create Mux, an 8.5” x 5.5” zine that TJ curates with images from his talented peers.
Mux is on its second issue, and the first edition sold out quickly, but more are on the way. Grab one fast and take a minute to hold a collection of work that deserves to be pondered on.
Graveyard Times with Anni
Pouring my heart at your feet,
you walked in the other direction. With arms outstretched, I grew tired of waiting for you to turn around.
I left my shadow on the cold asphalt, where it started to decompose. I’d try scraping off what remained to piece together.
But superglue can’t even hold whats been shattered.”
“ I like to look up wild at an infinite sky
Twinkling with diamonds
It’s true I get depressed in fancy hotel rooms
Undressed with nothing to flaunt but my loneliness
Thinking of the night song of your hair
Premature as evening falls it calls to me
Interrupted by the sirens in the street. ”
Track: I Figured You Out
Artist: Elliot Smith & Mary Lou Lord
Album: Martian Saints
“I’ve seen you watching
her every time she crosses the floor
so won’t you just go and talk to
the one you really adore.”
Happy Birthday Dad.
