So the following post is an homage to both of these ideas:
- The greatest of Elliott Smith and a new book which documents said greatness
- The various roads that our interests steer us towards, and the serendipitous tangents we are allowed to discover.
Which brings me to my second point which is the talent and beauty of de Wilde’s work and how it links to other roads on which I like to to travel. After checking out her website, I learned that she has photographed several other bands I love, namely Death Cab for Cutie The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Built to Spill, and yes my new love Jenny Lewis…so you see, talent, taste, honesty, and artistic integrity are all linked. You simply have to open up and look for the connections. Each path leads to another, there were a several artist in her portfolio that I am eager to explore.
