Well folks, it’s finally here. The first issue of The 22 in all it’s beautiful, gritty, hard wonness and I for one am glad to see it foisted upon the world. For the moment it is available to view on ISSUU and this evening I’ll have everything embedded so the tentacles of publication stretch far and wide. There are some amazing artists in here, and their words and pictures are now all yours. Over the next couple of months I’ll be shining a spotlight on each of these artists and telling you the story of why the were chosen to be one of the 22.(Look for a special post tomorrow morning as well, introducing you to the 22.)
Lots of very cool things coming up in the following months as well, including video interviews and some really terrific events involving the contributors.
Thanks again to all the folks that made this possible. We couldn’t have done it without you…and you….and definitely you.

Throughout Andrew Binkley’s work as an artist, he has utilized a variety of media and approaches to uncover and explore our notions of time and patterns of human behavior. In ‘Crossings’, Binkley brings into play the time-based media of photography and video to observe the seen and unseen traces between people on the streets below.
Through the use of an overhead perspective and layering multiple photographs and video of people passing by on their daily routines, ‘Crossings’ works with the themes of intersecting or sharing paths, and integrating or transforming relationships, as well as the unknown or transient connections between people through time.
