Trois x Trois = 9 Inspirations

My cross-continental kindred spirit, photographer Pauline Magnenat, who recently curated Culturehall Feature Issue 88: TOGETHER, ALWAYS, has created a new web project. Trois x Trois asks artists to share 9 things that have recently inspired their creative lives, and I was happy to be invited by Pauline to mention some books, films, and an organization that have made an impression on me.

A short list of inspirations:  Trois x Troix / Tema Stauffer

Beasts of the Southern Wild, a feature-length film directed by Behn Zeitlin
Girls Who Smoke, a short film directed and co-produced by Tawny Foskett
Bill Cunningham, New York, a documentary directed by Richard Press and produced by Philip Gefter
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, a novel by Junot Diaz
The Chronology of Water, a memoir by Lidia Yuknavitch
Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits, a biography by Linda Gordon
The Ongoing Moment, writing on photography by Geoff Dyer
Cruel and Tender: The Real in the Twentieth-Century Photography, a book edited by Tate exhibition curators Emma Dexter and Thomas Weksi
