The New Yorker: The Talk of the Town

Lillian Virginia Mountweazel, a fountain designer turned photographer who was celebrated for a collection of photographs of rural American mailboxes titled ?Flags Up!? Mountweazel, the encyclopedia indicates, was born in Bangs, Ohio, in 1942, only to die ?at 31 in an explosion while on assignment for Combustibles magazine.?

A sudden flurry of Nihilartikel related goodness via the marvellous Mr Begbie.

Marvellous. I'd rather like to photograph rural American mailboxes and set up a fake exhibition.
