L’Homme Nouveau.

L’homme nouveau veut être un Tchèque, un Afghan, un Français, un Marocain, un tout. Il veut être l’oiseau sur une branche, l’éléphant dans la forêt, la prostituée dans la rue, le mendiant, le Gitan, le migrant, le réfugié.
Vous lui demandez ce qu’il sait de toutes ces réalités, il ne sait rien, ou à peu près ; vous l’emmenez avec vous dans la rue, il passe devant les mendiants sans les regarder ; vous le contredisez, il pique une crise, trépigne, vous hait déjà un peu, bientôt beaucoup. L’homme nouveau est un fake, un gros fake, une sorte de déchet. Enfin, il a des qualités, qu’il n’utilise pas : il a à peu près pris tout ce qu’il y avait de pire dans les possibilités humaines : il est à la fois l’ignoble cureton moralisateur, le lèche-bottes du cureton qui lui taille des pipes pour se faire bien voir, le fumeur de joints défoncé en soirée, le beauf égrillard au bistro, le mondialiste de salon, la lopette dans les rues, le raseur de mur. Quel beau tableau n’est-ce pas, l’anti-héros a de beaux jours devant lui, s’il survit.

River loved nothing better than hanging around the Chili Peppers,“ reports a long-standing music-business friend of River’s. “They were his big friends, and Flea was his man”. I remember how happy River was when he was with the Peppers. His beaming face said to me, ‘This is where I wanna be.’

Trust Yourself - Don’t Ask.

Don’t give your aesthetical opinion on the images of others unless you have worked on reception or receptivity for a long time. You might be excellent in creation, what I have been observing for many years is that many of you are extremely self-centred and don’t have the notion of levels in art, but a lot of notions on how fantastic you are.

To the newbies or less experimented artists, don’t ask their opinion to artists who are quite acknowledged ; don’t ask their opinion to teachers, more or less, don’t ask anyone. Do your stuff, build your reception level, enjoy life, trust your talent, and work on enthusiasm : avoid euphemisms, give, encourage creation and talent, avoid envy. And remember that acknowledged artists are blinded by their fame and are NOT givers.

Art is...

I read a text this morning, which had interesting elements, but so many others that were false, and new restrictions, as if the art world wasn’t giving enough already.
Art students, art spectators, are fed with, and directed towards, what HAS to be art, what HAS to be photography. The results are that speaking with them is BORING, they become clones, thinking that to repeat their teachers’ mantra is the panacea. By the way, all that they say is boring, on society, on politics, whatever.
Once again, as the about of the mag says it, do WHATEVER you fucking want in art. Just be creative, and precise, or not if you manage to develop a lo-fi vision. Just be careful of bad lo-fi, and if you want to be precise, be really precise. And don’t copy. Don’t even inspire yourself. Live, watch the world, empty your mind, and things will come. This is not the “inspiration” we hear about everywhere, which is very, very close to stealing. This is receiving, and giving in your OWN way, with who you are. Also, don’t try to be meaningful because you’re ordered to be so. Most people are shallow and factitious, so please, don’t play the Jean-Paul Sartre, the Kafka or the Luther King because it’s extremely visible for non-pigeons that it’s overplayed.
And…
Plus…

One more fantastic photographer left Tumblr, and erased her blog...

God fucking dammit, one of the greatest talents here erased her Tumblr... Marta Bevacqua’s huge gallery in the mag is still available, yet, as usual, the images are degraded, as for Kiyoshi Yamaguchi about one month ago…

So many great photographers leave the place, and you know, the lack of firm action of the staff on the topics we often mention is not for nothing in this awful cascade of departures.

Our Empty Dedications

We arrive somewhere, we’re enthusiastic. We discover new places, new people, we think we found peace after hell, then a fucker comes, then another, then they rot everything, they start to slander, to transform the stories according to what they remember and which is false, or by real will of destruction.

My examples on the web platforms are significant, but it also happens in life, to strictly every fucking one. After having been erased from Aminus3 where I had spent one year and a very, very successful half, I went to Blipfoto, in January 2 014.
Really, there, has been the best mood I had. Globally, the writing level is excellent, as well as the ideas’. It’s more based on comments, is only for English speakers, like that it avoids the French, among which are a very serious bunch of huge pains in the ass, it’s a kind of national spirit to piss off people there. It badly ended three months ago, as many of you know, with the destruction of three years of passion and work, after a harassment and a manipulation of the staff by a harasser.

In June 2 014, two months after my Aminus’ erasure, I found Fotoblur. I invited some of my Aminus’ best friends to come with me, which they did. In the first days, I told one : “Hey ! It seems that we have found THE place”. It was just a start, and I couldn’t know what would happen in the days after. There is, there, a stupendous bunch of psychos, a real asylum. Among this shit, I managed to be successful there, and to direct the group Eroticism and Abstraction. This platform’s level is extremely high, and it was one of the pleasures. This group, for example, was a permanent stunner. Many people trusted me, but the little hands, backstage, were acting. A slander, and I was erased in September 2 014. When the boss, some months later, discovered he had been fooled, he didn’t apologize….and I came on Tumblr, on which I was, but without ever interacting, which I started to do. The experience has been extremely fine for two years and a half, until hell.
We dedicate and we offer, but you know….it’s always fuckers who win. They eat the best of us. All we can do is try to keep on among the vampires, or outside, if we prefer to be quiet.

Bianca, The Wall.

He said “Please, stop. In spite of all your efforts, you don’t provoke any positive emotion in me, mainly disgust, and fear”.

Bianca said “but I think of you ALL THE FUCKING TIME, and look at ALL THAT I DO FOR YOU, from morning to night I scream that I want you and that I love you and you fucking ignore me !!”

He said “I’m really sorry, there is no way back. Please, use your energy for something else. You have missed the train. One thousand times have I shouted in all languages so that you understand, one thousand times haven’t you understood basic things. You are supposed to be an adult. You played, knowing exactly what you were doing. To miss a train is to miss a train”.

Nothing. Nothing was reminding him of the Bianca he knew. He had thought about everything, how someone so wonderful in spite of her strange days could have become something. Just something for which he couldn’t smile, not even once, even if she was speaking to him three hundred times per day. And still, she didn’t understand, and kept on, always the same, making always the same mistakes, giving love, giving hate, loving, harassing, never stopping. Deaf, deaf, deaf.
