Shout out to the doyen of photo-bloggers J.M. Colberg for featuring one of my favorite snaps from my eternally uncompleted body of work currently titled 'The Afghans'. Joerg also recently featured the work of Irish photographer Kenneth O'Halloran whose large format series on Irish horse fairs has been knocking 'em dead in this heady season of photo-awards. Some epic images of the unique faces of the Irish Travelers who come to buy and sell ponies all over Ireland that are well worth checking out.
In other Traveler related news meanwhile, Ian Palmer's 12 year documentary odyssey on feuding gyspy boxers 'Knuckle' which I wrote about here has been blazing a trail this week at the Sundance Film Festival. G'wan Ian.
Already with precious international distribution secured, Ian's film has gone one step further with Indiewire reporting today that the team that brought us 'Eastbound and Down', namely Danny McBride, David Gordon Green and Jody Hill are hoping to turn 'Knuckle' into a TV series for HBO.
Only time will tell, but can the public handle the idea of an Irish Kenny Powers?
