” What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart.
That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion.”
“Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me.”
Vincent van Gogh
I was in Venice a couple of weeks ago, and came back with lots of photographs! While wandering around the streets, I saw a familiar face, a face I remember from my previous visit almost three years ago. He was waiting there with a bit more darkened face, but still looking very good.
By the way I love those white sheets…
Oh! you understand
that if I consent
to live — to seem
to forget you —
it is to
feed my pain
— and so that this apparent
can spring forth more
horribly in tears, at
the middle of this
life, when you
appear to me.
from A Tomb For Anatole, Stéphane Mallarmé

Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot

the world through your eyes?

Though it was a short trip for a couple of hours only, I had the chance to shoot a lot. So get ready for more!
