won't you let me walk you home from school? won't you let me meet you at the pool?*

With two weeks of school left, I am into combining back to school vibes with summer vibes, which can be summarized metaphorically in this post's title.
Jerry Hall on a road trip in Texas, Stand By Me, Mary Ellen Mark, Sally Mann, Edward Hopper, Cindy Sherman (this here Untitled #96 is now the most valuable photograph in the world, GET IT CINDY SHERMAN), William Eggleston, Irving Penn.

*If you understand this reference to "Thirteen" by Big Star, congratulations! You may now consider yourself a member of the Cultural Elite.**
**If you understand this reference to Tina Fey's new book, double congratulations! I wish I'd thought of it so I made up this second asterisk to seem clever, and also not plagiarize.

Lightning Heart said...

mmmmmm sally mannnnnnnnnnnn

Sydney said...

no i didnt notice these two things :/


mmm! interesting post, but i not love smoking children!!!

Mina Jade said...

This is cool - I was smoking cigarettes when I was a preteen. I stopped at the age of fifteen, and never smoked after that, not once. Which is still better than starting after 18 and smoking for the rest of my life. By the way, the black girl from behind looks so glorious.

Amanda Rizkita said...

preteen smoking ohh yes

Alexis said...

i'm shocked there's no Man in the Moon photo!

MelancholyChild said...

Stand by Me & smoking children... I like it.

Cristina said...

No girl is complete without her Sally Mann or Cindy Sherman phase. This is a crucial post for young ladies everywhere! Is it obvious I was a photo major...I like the post!

Andie Portillo said...

The pictures give me a bittersweet feeling of my summers and back-to-school moments. Lovely photos.

Armando y Montez said...

Super post! Love those sassy smokers..

Niki said...

Vasilieva said...

such an awesome selection of photos, totally inspiring

Pashupati said...

I thought Most Valuable was a photography of a woman mastrubating.
Well, that would have been a tad cooler, maybe.

in dreams said...

also, am i the only one freaked out by those tiny things smoking? dear lord, their lungs!!

Bonnie said...

Love Big Star and the smoking children. It's ART, people! :)

Dainty Librarian said...

Have you heard Elliot Smith's version of "Thirteen"? It's quite wonderful.

AnonymousGirl said...

Holy crap. Just stumbled across your name and then your blog via Danah Boyd of Apophenia. You are so brilliant, not just for a 15 year old, but in general. I love your voice and your style. If I weren't 12 years older than you and married with babies, I'd totally just say, "Let's be friends!" without any irony. Anyway, cheers to you for all the recognition you've gotten. It's well deserved.


EmK said...

I wish I could say I got your references...

I love all these pictures.

Jenae said...

Great photographers.

Dainty Librarian said...

Have you heard Elliot Smith's version of "Thirteen"?
It's quite wonderful.

Meagan said...

Thirteen is one of my favorite songs. The Elliott Smith version that was mentioned above is good too, if you haven't heard it, but not nearly as good as the original,if you ask me. You do such a great job matching your photos and post titles.

Tendai said...

there very good pieces especially the pictures of young girls smoking

Kacie said...

Love the Sally Mann photos use.


Riku Oshima said...

Do you think what is important to keep on a blog.

So I have a fashion blog, but recently I'm troubling about "what is important about fashion blog".

ERI HAMADA said...

nice photos!
i like these***

November Grey said...

I can't get over #3.

zoomslow said...

I want to try and make a Jackson Pollocky painting today. So to get some idea, I've looked up his work in "Sister Wendy's American Masterpieces". And as it happens, Edward Hopper appears in here as well.

I guess a lot of people talk about the creepiness, the psychological apect of E.H's work, but for me just his use of light and shadow is worth more than the price of admission. Nice choice, Tavi :-)

La Boutique said...

I looooooooooooove Stand by Me, I'm so obsessed with it that I watch it once a week :p

Cristina Suspiria said...

great post! I don´t really like summer but I love the transitory weeks between spring and summer

Nixie said...

I'm in love with the pics of girls smoking cigarettes- they're sort of surreal, and off-putting in their unexpectedness. :D

Lovely photos!
came across your blog when i was reading the magazine 'shout' and there was 2 pages on you, How lucky!
it really inspired me :)

ellie oxoxox
following you, hope you follow back ??

cancercowboy said...

heck, another club i won't be a member of ^___^
the pics give off a somewhat Southern feel. and yes, smoking makes even preteens look badass and hard-boiled. it may cause cancer but SPOILER: non-smokers will die too ^______^. here's one more for the collection. random internet find, so i have no clue who's the photographer, alas.
have a good time.

Werunia B. said...

Amazing photos! Love your blog!

BETABOOMblog said...

super seleccion de photos! y aparte de eso amo tu estilo y tu blog!


natalie said...

the elliott smith cover of thirteen is pretty wonderful too

_thatagirl_ said...

where did u get those photos?
I wanna know ^ o^ said...

If I knew what the picture was going to be like I wouldn’t make it. It was almost like it was made already.. the challenge is more about trying to make what you can’t think of.
- Cindy Sherman

gosh! I love Cindy Sherman.
Her work and her thoughts have inspired so much of what I've done.

Lovers, Saints & Sailors said...

Gosh what a great series of pictures. Totally feeling the vibe.

Shelley said...

I only know Stand By Me and Cindy Sherman, and only because I studied both for school XD

Ramonn Vieitez said...

see you with black lips, made ​​me miss my black lipstick phase :~

Carol Rocha said...

I loved the photos!

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...
