As an unknown actor in the early ’50s, Paul Newman fought to play Hal Carter, the lead role in William Inge’s Pulitzer Prize–winning play Picnic. But the director wasn’t convinced Newman’s physique was fit enough for Hal, who appears naked from the waist up in most of his scenes. Eventually, Newman worked his way up to the from a supporting role, garnering critical acclaim and jump-starting his legendary acting career. Fast forward sixty years later to another relatively unknown actor, Sebastian Stan, a Romanian import best known for stint as Sigourney Weaver’s son in Political Animals and his supporting role in Captain America: The First Avenger. Like Newman, Stan was gunning for the lead in Captain America, but he was offered the role of the hero’s comparatively less-buff sidekick instead. Judging from the current state of his six-pack abs, however, he clearly didn’t have any trouble convincing director Sam Gold that he was ripped enough for Picnic’s Hal. x

Untitled/Immolation (2012)

These are some old photos I still like.  I’m not going to post more of my ghost town series until after exhibition in the winter, so I’ll be shooting a bunch of different work in the mean time

Soulmates aren’t the ones who make you happiest, no. They’re instead the ones who make you feel the most. Burning edges and scars and stars. Old pains and pangs, captivation and beauty. Strain and shadows and worry and yearning. Sweetness and madness and dreamlike surrender. They hurl you into the abyss. They taste like hope.

GREEK MYTHOLOGY MEME | [3/7] MORTAL MYTHOLOGICAL FIGURES: ARIADNE

Ariadne was the daughter of King Minos of Crete and half sister to the Minotaur Asterion. When greek hero Theseus came to Crete to slay the Minotaur, she fell in love. So strong was her love for the hero, she aided Theseus in both the slaying of the Minotaur and escaping the Labyrinth where the monster was imprisoned. She consulted the man who built the maze, Daedalus, and helped Theseus escape the maze with a ball of string. She left Crete with Theseus believing he was to marry her, but the hero abandoned her on the island of Naxos. Overcome with grief and close to death, the god Dionysus came to her rescue, fell in love, and married her. In  death she was made into a constellation.
