where no endings end

before the dance, beyond the creek

Martine Franck (April 2, 1938 – August 16, 2012) - Photographer

FRANCE. Hauts de Seine. Meudon. 1991.

"A photograph isn't necessarily a lie, but nor is it the truth.
 It's more of a fleeting, subjective impression.

 What I most like about photography is the moment that you can't anticipate: you have to be constantly watching for it, ready to welcome the unexpected."

SWITZERLAND. Basel. Carnival. 1977.

FRANCE. Paris. Opéra Garnier. The "Petits Rats" of the Paris Opera in one of the dressing rooms. 1979.

USA. New York City. Veterans' parade, commemorating the armistice. November 11th, 1974.

"An open door says, “Come in.”
A shut door says, “Who are you?”
Shadows and ghosts go through shut doors.
If a door is shut and you want it shut,
     why open it?
If a door is open and you want it open,
     why shut it?
Doors forget but only doors know what it is
     doors forget."

--Carl Sandburg

The Bend
By Claude Esteban

Around the bend of a phrase
you return, it’s dawn in a book, it’s
a garden, one can
see everything, the dew, a moth
on a leaf and it’s you
who rises suddenly amid the pages
and the book grows more lovely
because it’s you
and you've not grown old, you walk
slowly to the door.

Source: Poetry (June 2011).
Translated from the French by Joanie Mackowski 

it's dawn in a book somewhere

The music contained on the tapes is a "soundtrack" of sorts. One tape is a mix of Blue Tapes artists Whitney GeorgeGuzzlemugPrayer and We are Bright & Broken. The other tape is a collage piece - called Sleeping in Houses - themed on architecture, memory and dreams, by Thank You, Merciless Onlookers."

RD Laing - revisited / admin invite / 18+ Group

The way we have grown to see 'things' beyond the norm, beneath the surface, the fabric or matrix of a 'so-called society'.
Psychology and visual concepts in the 21st century.

Our experience in an ever-increasing technological age of ourselves and others.
