Photo of the Week - Berlin Wall I


Berlin Wall I
Originally uploaded by Eugene Goodale
Shot in Washington DC at the Newseum. They have installed some segments of the Berlin Wall along with a guard turret. The display emphasized the role of the media in the tearing down of the wall. Although it seemed to me to be placed in a pop culture context rather than as a symbol of repression and terror that it actually was.

Photo of the Week













This photo wast taken at a club called d.b.a.'s on Frenchman Street in New Orleans. I was trying to capture the late night atmosphere of a jazz bar in the summer. The band was called the Palmetto Stompers and they played in an early jazz style. Folks were dancing and drinking and it had a steamy, sweaty soulful feeling.
