The fuller body of work from Cuba is long overdue to this blog.
It’s a really wide pool of images and I have yet to gather them all, some are still in the fridge..
So, to anyone curious in the meantime there is the flickr page for more of this
A week before embarking to Cuba, the news seemed to take the world by great surprise of how their 55 years of socialism was to meet a new phase. To have a ticket to this special country back then was of enormous value; a country in front of a lot change in the coming years.
You would think most travellers would be all the more aware of the timeliness of the place as such; photographically a great discovery to pursue interpretations of this, in the mood and interesections the eye could meet.
I’m gonna start with a single frame for this, as I am still awaiting a wider pool of film to get ready.
With some very direct references to Burial, you’d wonder who these guys are. Very little info on them, but there are some sectioned compilations here that are some interesting finds worth sharing.
poetic Tycho roadtrip material. beautiful vocals, amazing kickoff.
The late 2014 is far too short of light to continue much photography around London, so instead here comes a throwback from Milan 4 years ago. A few of these would happen in the name of the Icelandic Volcanic Chao of that time, which allowed me to hang around for a little while longer and play with Italia’s light. I remember well there was a Stanley Kubrick photo exhibition then, which really influenced my stance on the practice. The frames are scattered, but are a few of the ones standing out in some way.
Al chiaroscuro as you would.. If every student could be offered such an environment we’d live in a much more developed reality.
While dining, this trio fully caught our attention. I started with the 35mm, until i couraged up to go beyond the bar counter and use the hasselblad as it was too special.
Come to think that inception came out some 3 months later.
So if you can be surprised about the reptile being the flatmate, so would have the partner to keep him – also in a very dark room I remember.
DJ Set after Roisin Murphy was complete.. or maybe she was still on. It didn’t matter – the music was putting everyone in a sweet dance mood.
At the end of a Roisin Murphy gig, somewhere in North Milan. It was around 3-4 in the morning, think he was just trying to stay steady. It was the last frame I remember from this night.
