Not too long ago I posted something about Seba Kurtis' Shoe box series, you can see them on his site here.
And then looking at Blake Andrews Blog (which is fantastic) I saw his post about the photographs Bryan Wolf showed him, I thought now they make a nice match, this is the start if something.. Also nice title for a show Rain, Floods and Photographs
You can see Blake Andrews Post here.

Also I cant recommend enough Blake's posts entitled American Prospects Revisited, a lovely investigation into Joel Sternfelds classic book. See them here
