The Luminous Playhouse

Anne Garland is a genius at capturing atmosphere. Atmosphere as I define it is: the aching feeling you get down deep in your bones when you see or hear something that makes you remember you are alive.

This has atmosphere.


(or as danielle says: miao.)


  1. Amber; Thanks so much for pointing me to these magnificent and thoughtful pieces of art - Anne has taken the mundane and made it exceptional through her vision - As a side benefit you reminded me that Flickr has this huge art museum component to it that will only please me when I prowl through people's creations stored there ;-)

  2. I am so glad you enjoyed her work. She is a friend and an inspiration. Enjoy the Superbowl! Know that we are all jealous of you :)

  3. That was amazing. I was talking about this with my friend Laura just yesterday that a good photographer (or writer, or artists or whatever) can capture the essence of something or give you a sense of it's being or the story.

    But the word I really wanted was atmosphere. That's perfect.

  4. These are killer pieces - they really manage to resonate without being obvious. And not to sound like a broken record, I too overlook the fact that Flickr has created a perpetual online photography museum for people who might not otherwise have the ability to get their work shown.

    And I'm LOVIN' the blogging and twittering. Thanks for the link love in art vs. commerce - I will be returning the favor!

  5. What a gorgeous body of work. I love the juxtaposition of domesticity, theater and play in Garland's vision. Thanks for the link; I'll definitely be following her project from now on.

  6. You describe atmosphere correctly in my opinion. It's the same feeling I get when I watch you or read your work, or hear your music.

  7. Hi :)
    I really love Photography and this work of your friend is really nice.
    Speaking of atmosphere, here is a link to someone's art. Her name is Emilie Lefellic, she's my Grammar Teacher (which makes any comment from me awkward so I won't comment before May). She uses polaroid and filters... Anyway here is the link of her Flickr profile, hope you enjoy it!

  8. Your Grammar Teacher is extremely talented. LOVED her flickr page. Thanks for including it with your comment :)

  9. You're welcome! Not only is she talented but she's cute too... though her classes are kind of "draft-y", still nice. :)
    I'm glad you loved it! I'll let her know so! (or you can leave comments to her).
    Since I'm here, huh I'm visiting LA with a friend (Dorothy) in March, do you have any suggestions for galleries or museums?
