after my great grandmother lost her husband that she was married to for fifty years in 1986, her neighbor took pictures of the sunrise and sunset every day with his film camera from across the street. when he gave the pictures to her, he told her, “in spite of everything, the sun will always rise, and the sun will always set.”

Private access to Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation, which is about a three-hour drive through desolate highways from one of two airports, must be booked at least two weeks in advance. Recently, Chinati hosted a two-hour sunrise tour of Judd’s untitled installation of 100 aluminum boxes.
