I didn’t really use machines besides the one for the overhead shoulder press. My form sucked if I did it with free weights.

Oh, I did a little rowing and running too, obviously.

Recent Acquisitions #01

ON PHOTOGRAPHY by SUSAN SONTAG 

Very excited to be reading this. I buy books quite consistently, and this is one of a recent batch that I think will be the most relevant for my followers.

I’m particularly interested in her exploration of photography as a straightforward means of documentation versus a “high” form of fine art. I think if asking “is it one or the other?” there is no real answer, as we often see journalistic and documentary photography that we would consider very expressive and artistic, and vice versa. Publications like the World Press Photo yearbooks are perfect examples of this duality, as photographs are examined and judged both as works of art and as records.

Sontag also investigates the social impacts of photography and images in general as a medium, and its application as a propaganda tool as John Berger does in Ways of Seeing, published in Penguin as part of the same series.

I found this a bit confusing, but I assume you mean do I support smaller guys that are able to fit into Rick’s womenswear. The answer is of course! The Internet will have you believe being smaller than average is shameful, but there are clearly lots of advantages.
