Talk Talk Talk

@ VOL 18 ON SEP 13, 2013

Robert Keteyian explores thought proccesses, and the we think and communicate. Everyone has different levels of auditory, kinesthetic, linguistic, and visual-spatial reasoning, which may account for difficulties in communication. By understanding these innate differences, we can become less judgemental and more accepting of one another.

A Beautiful Reality

Originally a travel photographer, Ralph Hassenpflug has changed his approach and now enjoys photographing people and the aspects of them that are disconnected from their "public selves." Ralph describes the primitivistic approach to his art: he does not think his pictures - he feels them.
