and I quote: "This is a statue of Victor Hasselblad. He invented the first 6x6 single reflex camera, he also left his fortune to a foundation, The Hasselblad Foundation, which gives grants to photographers.The biggest grant is awarded each year to a known photographer, that also gets a big retrospective show at the Hasselblad Center at the Gothenburg Art Museum. Last year it was Nan Goldin,(a great show) this year its the Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. She has a very good photobook about Oaxaca, its called 'Juchitan'.
On Monday, the last lab that processes big format film in Seattle, Iveys, is closing. Small buisnesses and artists are scrambling."
