  2. This is all kinds of awesomeness Mary! Thanks for posting this!

    I know it would be daunting (to say the least!), but could you maybe create an annotated list of your top 5? I would be interested to know why you picked some of these books! I think I'm going to do this for myself, too!

    Oh, is there a similar set (maybe not books, but influences...)that have influenced your photography?

  4. Great list! Lots of wonderful critical theory. Three suggestions: Jacques Ranciere's The Ignorant Schoolmaster, Bernard Stiegler's Taking Care of Youth, and anything by Catherine Malabou (What Should We Do With Our Brains? is a good place to start...) Read any of these?

    Thanks for the list.
