Bag Beauty: Splash of Red

In About All Publications, About Image Works on 12/31/2009 at 18:20

Bag beauty struck me on Boxing Day. I was people-watching on Granville Street when I shifted my focus from faces to the shopping bags people were holding. I simultaneously wondered what was in them, saw them as icons of consumerism, and reveled in their beauty. They appeared to me as sculpture, a kaleidoscope of color, poetry. I asked their holders to stop and pose for me.

Three photos from that day are on display in the Red Gallery at Splash of Red: Asbury Park’s Literary Arts Magazine.

Dylan Emerick-Brown, editor-in-chief,  says inspiration for the magazine title comes from several things, including: “the blood and passion that goes into only the most skillfully crafted art” and “great work that stands out just like a splash of red.”

Urban Outfitters. Granville St. 2PM.

I wonder:

How much money did they spend?
Will their deals make them happy?
