Raoul Ollman: Daily Shot
I've really been enjoying Bay Area artist Raoul Ollman's Daily Shot album on Facebook. With a gentle pinhole effect and moody pallet, Ollman captures a certain crepuscular character.
WE DREAM OF A RAIN that, in lieu of falling, moves parallel to the earth. Sheet after sheet of rain. Then an upward rain that originates a few feet off the ground. You can get under the rain and watch. With the disappearance of public space, we dream a rain that's moved indoors. A miniaturized rain restricted to one room, one wall, a box. Then we dream of snow.
—Ben Lerner, Angle of Yaw
