Required Reading 7.1.2011

Required Reading is a weekly listing of all the bits of visual inspiration, cool videos, news, hip links, and miscellaneous information that rattles my head during the week. The stuff that’s worth bookmarking and gets my brain-juices flowing.

This week has been insanely busy, I just blew back into the studio from a shoot and have just enough time to get this required reading up before I dash out to another location. Lots of good news came to me this week that I will be reporting on soon.

• Loving this NPR story and photo series. – People of the Clouds, A Story of Ghost Towns and Great Migrations.

• A fascinating early tintype of Billy the Kid sells for 2.3 Million at auction.

• I am really really digging the style of this video for Moby’s After, Directed by Alberto Gómez
