a visit to tamar mogendorff”s studio feels very dreamlike and magical… there are piles of fish, sea horses and birds, whales hanging in antique fishing nets, a wall of bird houses, and piles of fabric… i loved visiting her workspace and photographing her project for lines & shapes, volume eight. tamar gave me such a special present– one of her bird cages, which i’ve been admiring for years (bottom two photos). see more from tamar here and here.
