Na simplicidade aprendemos, que reconhecer um erro não nos diminui, mas nos engrandece, e que as pessoas não existem para nos admirar, mas para compartilhar conosco a beleza da existência.

Back to Civvies, Norman Rockwell, The Saturday Evening Post, December 15, 1945
Back to Civvies shows a World War II Flying Fortress pilot in the bedroom where he grew up. Rockwell chose props that say a lot about the flyer’s life both before and after he went to war. Even his name—-Lt. A. H. Becktoft—-is on the duffel bag on the floor. The insignia on the uniform jacket reveals that he served with distinction. The blue and yellow ribbon with the tiny oak leaf cluster indicates that he received the Air Medal twice.
Opening today at Bonni Benrubi Gallery, “One Steinway Place” is an exploration of the famed piano factory in Astoria, Queens, by the photographer Christopher Payne. Under the glow of fluorescent lights, raw lumber is bent, pressed, conditioned, and polished into instruments of exacting quality. With more than twelve thousand individual parts, including Canadian maple, Bavarian spruce, and Swedish steel, each piano takes nearly a year to assemble before being subjected to a final hand inspection by Wally Boot, a fifty-year veteran of the factory. Payne was allowed unfettered access to the factory, allowing him to document every step of the process. Click-through for a selection of his work, which is on view through September 19th.
