Press shot of Adolescent that I took accompanying an interview with him and a link to the Golden Halls Pt 2 video directed by Maddalena McNicholas which is great, well worth a watch on http://lifeisabanana.com
At first I didn’t really take to this image, I didn’t feel it did the music justice. But the more I look at it and see it being used the more I like it. Some things just grow on you, which is always nice.

"Space apart is a diaristic journey away from home. It entails the emotional fluctuation one experiences as foreign becomes familiar."

“Paradise Now presents fragments of nature (some of them mise en scène, others untouched by urban growth) on the periphery of the artificially illuminated infrastructure of large Asian cities. Unlike natural light, the lights of the big city do not follow any direction: the artificial suns comprised of sodium lamps, automobile headlights, and illuminated skyscrapers form a kind of “vernacular light” that makes the urban super-green alternate between the hyper-real and the surreal.”
Beautiful painterly series by Peter Bialobrzeski. Quite a surreal effect the light is having on the environment.

“In ‘Olympic Favela / Vai com Deus’
I portray the people affected by forced evictions in Rio de Janeiros’ favelas ahead
of the World Cup (2014) and 2016 Olympic Games.
As waves of protests rock Brazil recently, it becomes apparent that the policy of evictions is only one of many expressions of a governing system that excludes vast portions of the population from the economic upturn the country has seen in recent years.” - Marc Ohrem-Leclef
It’s a dream project for me. Although I’m unsure of his use of people holding flares. Artistic differences.

Nobuyoshi Araki, ABCD, 2003.
ABCD is a facsimile of Araki’s four over-sized notebooks lettered thus, which house enlarged contact prints from 94 rolls of film made by him in the early `70s; each is numbered and sequenced in chronological order.
The developer used to develop these negatives was over-heated, causing the emulsion to reticulate and break apart in random fashion. The physical, degenerative effect on the images, lends itself to existential interpretation as if they had survived the blast. The reservoir of images is extracted from everyday life and in essence chronicles Araki’s experience. There is little epiphany in the interpretation of subject matter, shifting from generic urban landscape to sexual acts. The marriage of the mundane and the erotic is at the core of Araki’s canon and here, in 1972, he is laying the conceptual foundation for all future work.
This is why I love Araki.

A short study on how music can be recorded.
Out takes from something else, not intended for a project I just thought they looked quite nice, too nice to be locked away.

Beautiful, touching and extremely empathetic documentary essay by Giuseppe Moccia. Truly is inspiring. Great to see someone concentrating on such an important and often ignored subject matter - treating everyone like the human beings they are and deserve to be.
Found on Burn Diary, here’s the accompanying text;
"“Upon wind we’ll set the sails” is an exhibition curated by Annalisa D’Angelo, combining the personal diaries of the rookies of the Italian Association of People with Down Syndrome (AIPD) sailing program along with Giuseppe Moccia’s photographic documentation of the students. Since 2005, AIPD has been running an educational curriculum that works in tandem with the sailing school, using the boat’s environment to challenge the adaptive shills of its participants. Amidst their peers and away from the comfort zone of their families, the students work in direct contact with nature to become autonomous key players of an unforgettable adventure. Since 2007 Giuseppe Moccia has joined a number of crews in order to compose an intimate and personal narrative of the student’s journey. On April 4, 2014 the work will be displayed in an exhibition financed by the Department of Equal Rights, along with the launching of a self-published book."
