SITEWIDE BLOG POSTS
Our last post of 2009 is also the last presentation we highlight here on PechaKucha Daily, and it takes the form of photographer Mari Kojima's brilliant presentation on how she goes about taking her photos.

Mari talks about her life and her little island -- Japan -- as seen through a real finder not a digital screen! Make sure to check out Mari's brilliant and elegant blog where she posts one of her photos everyday.
PKN Jacksonville on the Marquee
PechaKucha Night in Jacksonville Vol. 7 took place last night, and as you may remember when we posted the flyer for event, the venue was a movie theater. Flickr user Fotobia.com has already posted a photo from the event -- it was sent from his mobile -- and we must admit that it's rather nice seeing "PechaKucha" written on the marquee like that.
Continuing with our look at presentations from PechaKucha Night in London Vol. 2 -- you could say it's London week here on PechaKucha Daily -- here's one from artist and climber (how's that for a combination) Martin Barret. Artist and climber Martin Barret takes us on a high level tour of his inspirations -- and contemplates how it might be nice to die from a bespoke object!
As we kick off a new week of presentation highlights -- you do know that we have a terrific "Presentations" section on the site, right? -- with "Sketch Book of Life," presented by Martin Willers at PechaKucha Night in Stockholm Vol. 21. An amazing presentation of sketches, which show how to use the inspiration of life to lift the possibilities of humanity to new heights! Brilliant -- thanks Martin!

A Beautiful Reality
"People rarely, if ever, made it into my images -- and when they did, it was a depiction of what they did, and never really a depiction of how they felt to me." Originally a travel photographer, Ralph Hassenpflug has changed his creative approach and now enjoys photographing people and the aspects of them that are disconnected from their "public selves." In the fascinating "A Beautiful Reality" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 18, Ralph describes the primitivistic approach to his art: he does not think his pictures - he feels them.
