Antonyms of Beauty

Directed by Khalik Allah

ANTONYMS OF BEAUTY IS A QUITE ORIGINAL, HALF-HOUR VIDEO ENTIRELY MADE BY YOU, IN WHICH FOOTAGE OF LIFE ON LEXINGTON AVENUE AND SOME OF YOUR PICTURES TAKEN THERE ARE SEEN WHILE HEARING YOUR DIALOGUE WITH FRENCHIE. WHY DID YOU MAKE THIS VIDEO?

I’ve been staring into the sun since I was a child. Some people told me not to do that. I did it anyway. I madeAntonyms of Beauty for the same reason. I have to stare at what nobody wants to look at. Right now you see many young photographers shooting beautiful women with full breast and perfect nipples. It can be a bad photograph but a great set of breast and there you go. Antonyms of Beauty is my answer to all of that. Photography is more than tittys. Likewise, photography is more than poverty. Antonyms of Beauty is intended to take you deeper.

Now for something completely different: a variety of 135 film. First shot shows my daughter at our church fair, obviously happy with her decoration (still in progress), well worth waiting in line…

子供の頃、自転車で色んなところに遊びに連れてくれた爺ちゃん

いつも口うるさかったし、いたずら好きやし よく泣かされてたな

今年の元旦の夜

今は足も悪くなってよちよち歩きになってしまったけど、その足で積もった新雪を蹴る爺ちゃんがとても愛おしかった。
