IMPORTANT NEWS

August 29, 2013

dear friends and family, peers and strangers,

I’VE MADE A PHOTO-ZINE of 22 of my favorite images. they are my original photographs printed in color. the booklet is called ‘the world as i see it’ and i am selling it for $11. This price is under what it cost me to make them, but I think it is worth it because I would like to distribute them all around. I am in the process of making them and starting an etsy account to be able to circulate them more easily; but if you are interested in one, please e-mail me and I can send you one as soon as possible: olayabarr@gmail.com (preferably for a pay-as-you-wish check/$/paypal in exchange!)Image

One of my keenest memories in Spain (where, I guess i was merely a week ago) was in the town fair of Celeiro. There was a boy who’s been haunting me since. He was on the ride called Break Dance: smiling with his arms up in glee while strobe lights flashed purple on his face. Meanwhile teenage groups speckled and drank Kas Limon with vodka, the girls in short blue or red skirts leaning behind the ride and smoking their mom’s cigarettes. The teen boys had gelled flecks gliding off their necks (pointing at the girls they were too nervous to talk to). The Banda Panama played cumbias, old couples slow danced, the young dared to grind. The little boy on Break Dance had beautiful brown eyes twirling in every direction, so excited and so pure. He didn’t look at anyone or anything in particular; just looking at it all and wanting it all around him.
