In Search of Robert Frank


Mashall and Bonnie and I - collaborating on this new postcard website  - were "raised" on "art-education-discover-the fringes for yourself" Robert Franks's photographs in the 50s, 60s and 70s.

He published a book mid 90s titled: Titled "Thank You."

We'd like to loop him into this project, if he would be most gracious to share some cards on the site, as it is in the spirit of flipping a running super-8 camera up into the air from the backseat of a convertible, or taping polaroids together.

Artists sending postcards to artists (much more time-consuming and fun than tweeting) prior to the age of cellphones and phone machines.

Robert, are you listening?

Thanks - Mark

I've been following the Colorado Creative Industries for about two years, and have been extremely impressed by the State's Creative Districts - most specifically the Corazon de Trinidad . So, while I decided last year to relocate, the whole process was sped up by the events which have buffeted lives world-wide in the past four months.  Trinidad is in the southeast corner of the state, about equidistant from Denver and Albuquerque. It has a rich history, a magnificent downtown Historic District, and is home to the newest (42nd) Colorado State Park - Fisher's Peak. Amtrak runs the Southwest Chief from Union Station in LA to Chicago, and Trinidad has long been a stop along the route. It is also located along the I-25 corridor, and abut

Moving Forward

I haven't created a post in over a year....so many changes....."shifts," rather than anything radical. October 2018, a good month spent in Colorado. It began with several days in Colorado Springs, much of it spent working with Bonnie Olson on her father's (L.H. "Ben" Benschneider) archive. The work isn't completed, but possibly will be later this year....placing much of it in the collections of Colorado College, and possibly the Pioneer Museum and Pikes Peak Library. Hooked up with my pal Chester Murphy in Trinidad, and then we visited Bishop's Castle, the Great Sand Dunes, Colorado Gator Farm and Bob and Maggie Sauer in Durango. A great deal of joint work occurred in 2019, as Raven had her left ACL surgically repaired in January, and her right ACL in November.  She is now the bionic dog....         Oh, and I got a new hip in October which, in retrospect, was about five years over due....Now, I'm pain free and much m
