art~ the narcotic of choice

this art makes me feel like i'm on tranquilizers i just finished a yoga class.
in december of 2006, artists, maria alexandra vettesethe and stephanie congdon barnes began taking photos of things randomly displayed on their kitchen tables {all before noon} and posting them to flickr. complete strangers and living 3191 miles apart, neither woman was aware of the other or that she was doing the same. eventually catching wind of the other's work, they began developing a blog together. the two continued to post their photos, one next to the other. everyday. and the crazy thing is that they've only met, in person, once.
really. incredible story isn't it?
the beautiful pairings of their work will appear, this fall in their book "3191, a year of mornings" the book is a compilation of these serene images, taken by two women with a love for early mornings quiet hours and the beauty found in the simplicity of life~ 3191 miles apart.
their newest blog "3191, a year of evenings" can be seen here. ahh. breathe in. breathe out.

Oh my goodness..I've followed the 3191 projects, but never was aware of the "complete stranger" and randomness of the collaboration. Truly amazing!!!
