What keeps me inspired, is how connected drumming makes me feel. Although playing to an arena full of people watching is the best thing in the world, I don’t need that to get in touch. I can sit on my own with a drum and tap into every person who has ever been to a show, every person I’ve ever met, family and friends far away, and people who have crossed over. The rhythm connects me to them all and I breathe and relax and play. I feel oneness with everything.

OMG, what a day!

I’m still blinking incredulous in front of my screen. Someone -undoubtedly generous- among the Tumblr editors has thought that ’Hostis Ante Portas’ had to be featured as a Trending Blog and I can only thank humbly such a nice distinction! Many, many, thanks for it and for the the opportunity to welcoming all the new followers of this blog who have felt curious or interested about my work, as well as  thanking  the ‘old’ ones for their continuous and kind support .

If this were not enough, I am happy to thank the same Tumblr Editors (the ’nice ones’, hereinafter) for having featured with a Landscape Blue Tag my pic ’Twilight Talks’.

Thanks, too, to the Lensblr friends for having kindly reblogged  my photo ’Reveries at midsummer’. 

And, last but not least, a big 'thank you’ to Un monde de Papier, Cross Connect and Wonderous World for their recent reblogs of my pics.



The Intriguing Surreal Art and Photography of Giordano Rizzardi

I am writing to introduce my work. I’m an italian artist, in my photos there is a continuous research/transformation of contemporary man, who imposes self-modifications on his body, visible through metallic structures. He does not reveal itself in its entirety but, in his body commodified.

He studied classical art and at the same time virtual environments and new technologies. With this dual preparation, he continues his research in the field of view, from photography to video art, to installation, developing the theme of the human person, which remains at the center of his work.

All the Wild Horses
 photo series by Durban-based photographer Andrew McGibbon

“'All The Wild Horses’ is a tribute to the beast that has made much of what we call life possible. The images are unique and have a style to them reminiscent of the portraiture of the rich and famous. The artist has attempted, and succeeded, to show a sense of personality and emotion - sadness in some cases and pride in others.

Painstakingly lit, this body of work is about the horse itself to which we all feel a connection, whether it’s obvious or deep down in our collective subconscious. There is a sense of awe that this beast inspires in each and everyone of us.”

Cross Connect er en blog vi har fulgt i et stykke tid og den skuffer aldrig, tværtimod. 
Bloggen er udelukkende forbeholdt til kunst og andre opsigtsvækkende værker.

Kunstnere kan selv anmode om medvirkning på Cross Connects hjemmeside. Herefter vil folkene bag bloggen drøfte henvendelsen nøje og hvis kunsten vækker interesse, vil det pågældende værk blive uploadet på art-bloggen.

Cross Connect er kort sagt, et hjemsted for godt indhold. Deres formål er meget enkelt: alle kunstnere og kreative sjæle fortjener, at modtage anerkendelse for deres arbejde. Ingen erfaring er nødvendig, bare kreativitet. 

De beskriver sig selv med følgende ord: “Connecting artists to the people and strange with the beautiful”. 

cross-connect  er et fantastisk og unikt kollektiv, hvor den kreative sans er i højsæde. Vi kan herfor varmt anbefale denne særpræget blog.
