Great shoot, friend and fan of this photographer as well.
Abbott H. Thayer ‘Waterlilies’ 1884
It’s funny, the only reason this is on tumblr is because of me, and then I left, and now that I’m back it has over 2,000 notes and I don’t get the credit…but whatever. As long as everyone knows it’s Thayer, and it’s amazing, I really don’t care.
Umm because no one else has access to Flickr right? I don’t get why people need tumblr credit for art they didn’t create
After interviewing for a job with the Academy of Art and finding out at the end of the interview that the pay is $13.50/hr, I wrote a nice thank you note: “Thanks for speaking with me today. After looking over my expenses, $13.50 will not be enough for me to live on. The average rent for a one bedroom in San Francisco is $2,897, and $13.50 an hour would only amount to $2,160 per month. Only if you increase the rate to at least the living wage, or offer housing, this will not work for me.”
Her reply: “At this time, the pay rate for the role is $13.50.”
Ah the Academy… And people ask me why I don’t want to teach there…
