5b4 Photography & Books

Jeffrey Ladd has an excellent new blog called 5b4. Be sure to check it out for Jeffrey’s latest revealing book reviews.

“I tend to cast a wide net over the medium as to what sparks my interest. When people look at my bookshelves they are often amazed (as I often am) when comparing my photography to the variety of titles on the spines of my book collection. 5B4 is a way for me to rediscover what has parted me from my money and to try to understand those objects in a critical way. It’s an exercise for my mind. To physically type these words helps me think differently and forces me to form opinions that are, for the time being, steadfast. Although 5B4 appears to be for others, it is really just for me.”

The pictures remind us that, if we let it, over-familiarity can make us blind to what’s really going on in the world around us.
