Wise words from the American philosopher William James (1842 – 1910)
For the month of new leaves and false starts that’s in it.
Excerpts from a project by photographer Christian Chaize spanning eight locked-off, large format years on a beach in Southern Portugal. To wit:
What the still-life was for Morandi, the haystack for Monet…this beach is that for me. From a distance, I observe the variables: light, weather, time of day, the ebb and flow of the ocean and most importantly, the sunbathers, unaware, below my large-format camera. The images are shot vertically, a departure from the traditional, horizontal format in landscape photography. It puts my subject matter in the form of a portrait—an ongoing record of this corner of nature (and human nature), over the minutes, the days, the years.

“You may remember us from our ‘Reveal Ireland’ days. Thanks to your posts and feedback from your readers, we quickly realised that our site had to change – it had to offer something absolutely new and unique. So, we scrapped Reveal Ireland and built Reveal from the ground up. Reveal will allow users to travel anywhere around the world, upload images, overviews, reviews and more and actually earn points for their efforts.”
“These points can then be cashed in for unique rewards. The beta website will launch at this year’s Dublin Web Summit in October but we are taking sign-ups on our new landing page now http://signup.yourreveal.co. Once you sign up you will receive a unique code to share with your friends. The more people you refer, the more points you’ll earn, and once we go live you can cash them in for unique rewards.”
