    Tony Feher (1956–2016)

    The sculptor Tony Feher died today. His subtle, straightforward work, made with the most throwaway of things—plastic water bottles, berry cartons, jelly jars, or blue painter’s tape—upended Minimalist sobriety and Conceptualist cool with an intelligence that wholly embraced humor and charm.

    Gary Simmons wrote, “R.I.P. Tony Feher a fantastic artist who showed us so much beauty in the moments…you’ll be missed brother..rest in power.”

    Born in Shanghai, China, in 1931, Ho first picked up a camera at age 13 when his father gave him a Rolleiflex twin-lens reflex camera. After moving to Hong Kong later in his teens, he began to document life on the streets of that bustling 1950s city. His remarkable street photos of Hong Kong would soon earn him international attention, exhibitions, and hundreds of photography awards.

    Message to the Future at Whitney

    A leading figure in the American street photography movement of the 1960s, Lyon has distinguished himself by the personal intimacy he establishes with his subjects and the inventiveness of his practice. With his ability to find beauty in the starkest reality, Lyon has through his work provided a charged alternative to the bland vision of American life often depicted in the mass media.

  • This is my favorite photo taken for the documentary, at Kota Harbor, Edo playing music on his ukelele to the kids. The metal round thing in the bottom left corner is a soup-bike in the making. It is recycled metal with a hole in it to fit a soup or porridge pot. It is then attached to a bike. That is how the poor make money. They ride around in the city selling street food. And it is actually delicious. The trashed floor… is actually layers of trashed on top of the OCEAN. Yes, there water underneath, not ground. not safe.

    Muhammad Ali and Marianne Moore Wrote a Poem together

    He announced that if she was the greatest poetess in the country, the two of them should produce something together — “I am a poet, too,” he said — a joint effort sonnet, it was to be, with each of them doing alternate lines. Miss Moore nodded vaguely. Ali was very much the more decisive of the pair, picking not only the form but also the topic: “Mrs. Moore and I are going to write a sonnet about my upcoming fight in Houston with Ernie Terrell,” he proclaimed to the table. “Mrs. Moore and I will show the world with this great poem who is who and what is what and who is going to win.”

    “We will call it ‘A Poem on the Annihilation of Ernie Terrell,’ ” Miss Moore announced. “Let us be serious but not grim.”

    “She’s cute,” Ali commented. (read here via )

    After we defeat Ernie Terrell
    He will get nothing, nothing but hell,
    Terrell was big and ugly and tall
    But when he fights me he is sure to fall.
    If he criticize this poem by me and Miss Moore
    To prove he is not the champ she will stop him in four,
    He is claiming to be the real heavyweight champ
    But when the fight starts he will look like a tramp
    He has been talking too much about me and making me sore
    After I am through with him he will not be able to challenge Mrs. Moore.
