Nostra Donna Del Fango/MUD LIFE CRISIS Calendar 2008
Now available!Did you faithful reader riders hope to escape crassmas commercialism in this sacred space?Augh! Please shield the children’s eyes here, mum. I have a filthy mud-caked bit of artwork for the rest of the whole family.Thanks to cycle blog wiz Chris H of Edenbourg I learned of a place that can turn an idea that’s been brewing for a decade (basically since I wanted to do another mud shoot) but lacked the neccessary know-how to click a camera, make a publication, etc, in other words I had to GROW UP a little more to bring the Fruits of Maturity to bear on this vanity project.I think you’ll agree this is pure mudlife crisis-solving through displacement activity. With your help of course! Click here you can decide for yourself and LOG YOUR OPINION here under this post!!Once in, if you click the button that says “Preview” somewhere on the Lulu page and you can see 12 pictures of a certain middle aged wombat who’s been mucking about in the mud. With really silly names like “Carmen DeNominator” and “Gloria Stitz” etc…Here, I’ll read my own deathless press release: Twelve images of the legendary offroad bicycle champion Jacquie Phelan–napped in mud. Anne Cutler’s stunning infrared photography echoes the grace and earthiness of a RockShox photo (by Jan Oswald) fourteen years earlier. “Fango” pictures were taken in a single autumn afternoon in Marin County, 2007. Cutler’s 2008 book “Treecycle” showcases natural beauty normally hidden from human view, since we don’t see into the infrared range like insects do. Lake mud does wonders for the skin, dunnit?
