Dudes In Flannels That Are Dirty And Drink A Lot Of Beer

Eirik Johnson: Missy Barlow's Dryer Lint Landscape, Lower Hoh River, Washington

Alright, this will be the last of my various posts about Eirik Johnson's show at the Henry, I promise (it closes at the end of the month anyway). I just wanted to mention that tomorrow night Tiny Vipers is going to be playing with Crystal Hell Pool in the gallery where Johnson's work is on display. Aside from playing in the actual woods or at the confluence of two rivers or something, that setting seems like just about the best possible match for their music.

Here's a video where Jesy Fortino (Tiny Vipers) talks about growing up in the woods (at 2:40).

(If you want to watch the rest of that odd little documentary about Seattle bands and/on Sub Pop, here are parts one and three.)

Visit the Henry's website or Hankblog or for info about the show tomorrow night– it starts at 7pm. More Tiny Vipers at Sub Pop and MySpace. Crystal Hell Pool here. More Eirik Johnson at The end.

Thank you very much for Eirik Johnson discovering.
I love more and more his pictures.
Now in Toulouse there's an interesting work of Jürgen Nefzger which i find some similar punctum.
(I beg you pardon for my English...)

Thanks for the link – I never knew his work. The light in his photos is amazing.
