…’Pathmark’ monotype and drawing by Helen Frank, 1982.

The scene of Helen Frank‘s artwork is a Pathmark store (top) that’s closing for the night. A worker has yet to collect all the shopping carts in the otherwise empty parking lot. My photograph (bottom) is taken at a grocery store, too. But it tells a different story. A single cart is a reminder of what was once a thriving business.

Inspired By…

…’Girls Standing On Lawns‘ by Maira Kalman And Daniel Handler, 2014.

Maira Kalman and Daniel Handler sifted through MoMA‘s archive of old snapshots and found a lot them had to do with the same theme- girls on lawns waiting for a family member or friend to take their picture. So, they selected some favorites and got busy- Kalman with her illustrations and Handler with his prose to accompany them.

For me… I got busy photographing Kayla sitting on the lawn. :)
