I’m THE WORST. Wait, we all know that Dana from Homeland is THE actual WORST. But I’m also pretty crappy, skipping blogging days on a weekday like this. Normally I save my blogging for nighttime because, you know, things must be done during daylight hours. But I’m so tired every night that I cant stay awake to blog. Or watch TV, even. It’s ok, I’m sure I’ll catch my breath and be back to my 2 am nights ASAP.
In the meantime, I’ve showed you everything but art coverage from this Basel trip, which I firmly believe has jumped the shark. Not the actual fair, but the weekend and hype surrounding it. Overexposed = Backlash. Which I’m sure will lead to backlash from the backlash in no time.
Anyhoo, there is always the problem of how to organize thousands of photos and art across all genres. By fair? By style? By theme? I almost organized it by “Things I want to buy” and “Black and white paintings” as well as “Art by women,” “Collages,” and of course “But is it ART?” You know what, maybe I should do it like that, instead of by fair. More fun? More fun = more work though…. OK, so I decided. Doing it by category. Below are my favorite photos across Pulse, Scope, Art Miami and Art Basel. I started with a smaller category believe it or not. Photography is a nightmare to re-photograph because all the pieces are covered with glass! So you have lights reflecting everywhere and my reflection in every photo. Anyway, I think you get the gist of it!
Enjoy! And you can make suggestions of what category you want to see next.

OK, that was the shortest category, or one of them, and that still took hours. What are your faves?
