“Colorado Springs, CO” (circa 1968)

“I took a picture once of a woman silhouetted in a tract house window. And in one sense that’s a picture of the saddest kind of isolation and most inhumane sort of building. But also raining down over this picture onto the roof and the lawn is glorious high-altitude light. Nabokov said there’s no light like Colorado’s, except in central Russia. And you can see it in this picture. It’s absolutely sublime.” - Robert Adams

Tony Stamolis summed this photo up best in one word, “terrifying.” Nice send T.

Tony Was Here…

Tony Stamolis that is — was — shooting naked ladies on the Katie’s couches. Sent this from the road to Fresno.

A sweet reminder of how insane in-between somewhere and anywhere can be.

Hawbaker sent me a link to a site for Tony’s new book “Frezno” early last week and his work spoke to me immediately. Each image hauntingly human, charming and eerily familiar, I snapped up a copy of “Frezno” and before heading out with Tony on a wild goose chase to find the elusive owner of the “world’s greatest vinyl reggae collection” and being invited to, and then asked to leave, some girl’s house who had an arcade size version of “Gauntlet” in her kitchen and a copy of “Sailing for Dummies” on her bookshelf, sat down with Tony for a chat.

Here’s some of that chat now…
