Warren Buffett and the Myth of the ‘Good Billionaire’ — Anand Ghiridardas in the New York Times
Danny Lyon’s singular and fascinating The Destruction of Lower Manhattan was recently brought back into print in facsimile by Aperture. It’s essential for anyone interested in urban/landscape photography, photojournalism, New York City, and urban destruction/redevelopment.
Learn to understand existence as being political.
Avoid art-world strategies.
Erase all known isms.
Don’t succumb to populist aesthetics.
Remove the notion of me.
Eliminate that which qualifies as a narrative.
Learn to live by the philosophy of jazz.
Only fools want to be famous (avoid at all cost).
Remain true to myself.
— Jack Whitten
