“… can we acknowledge how ridiculous it is to accessorize a 9 year old child with a film-based, toy camera from the 1960’s. Are they seriously trying to have us believe that this 4th grader prefers the soft, dream like aesthetic of medium format film and the process of manual photography?! FUCK YOU, ADVERTISING AGENCY RETAINED BY THE GAP, INC. Why not have the kid stand next to a 1st generation IBM supercomputer, which is an equally irrelevant piece of technology that the child has no sense of reference or attachment to!?”—
I went to Joanna Newsom last night, and had a great time (for those of you there: I was the photographer in the bright yellow shirt; shots up later) but while idly looking for a bootleg of a show of hers, I came across this one from 2006.
