unseen images

Do you ever think about all the unseen photos of Harry that exist out there? Think about it…the Another Man shoot had 40+ images…each of those images, the photographer had to take probably 20 of to get the right shot…that means there could be 800+ unseen images of Harry FROM THE ANOTHER MAN SHOOT ALONE.

Where are they? Can I have them?

This is what I love about life: you’ll never know if today you’ll wake up and find the new, unseen image of the Joker. Waking up to this is pure blessing

Hey Will! Having that whole fiasco with Carrie and Lowell in mind, what about Mount Eerie's A Crow Looked at Me is different/better? How his approach to grief more effective? I just listened to it in full and it is really such a beautiful and emotionally affecting record.

I would be hard-pressed to judge anyone’s approach to grief as “more effective”. I don’t know either of these men; I’m only familiar with what art they’ve released publicly. As far as the albums go, their artistic approaches are very different. ACL@M is confrontational, explicit; it’s more or less impossible to listen to it without grappling directly with the same emotions Phil E experienced. Its songs cannot be pulled out for a playlist or put on in the background. You have to experience it in full each time, like a film or short story. The exactness with which images and motifs unfold and repeat through the record emphasize this feeling. C&L, meanwhile, is collagist, open-ended; you can take away what you want from it. Its beats align with the rise and fall of musical movements, rather than a lyrical narrative. There are images that stand out clearly, but the importance is in the images themselves, the stark, individual clarity of their depiction, rather than in an unseen thread tying the images together. The listener brings that thread of meaning to the table, as is more often the case with music. I have always had a personal preference for built-in narrative, for the meaning behind images over the images themselves, hence my earlier nastiness over C&L, and my seemingly hypocritical admiration of ACL@M. What seems important to note is that both artists, in response to personal tragedy, made a work of art that was very much “them” - that pushed them to embrace their artistic tendencies, and make something out of those tendencies that could legitimately be called a masterpiece, something that could stand for the whole of their artistic output. If you are a music publication, please do not report on this post. Thanks.

The images had vanished from my original post of this on my old blog (which I don’t use anymore), so I thought I’d reupload here. Just in case any of my fellow Sparky shippers are still around. :)

The exhibition ‘An Afternoon With Audrey Hepburn’ is now into its final two weeks at Lucy Bell Gallery in St Leonards On Sea in East Sussex. The exhibition brings together previously unseen images of Audrey from the archives of George Douglas and Angela Williams.

The photographs by George Douglas were taken in New York in 1952 whilst Audrey was starring in 'Gigi’ on Broadway. I particularly love the candid shots of Audrey getting ready backstage. Her smile and warmth really do show through on the photographs. I visited the Open House event for the George Douglas photographs in Hove last year and they are just wonderful. I’m so pleased these photos were discovered and made available for everyone to see.

I attended the Angela Williams 'An Hour With Audrey Hepburn’ exhibition at Heartbreak Gallery in London in 2013 and fell in love with Angela’s beautiful photographs of Audrey dressed in Givenchy at The Ritz Hotel, Paris in 1964. The photographs are utterly mesmerising and perfectly capture Audrey’s beauty and reflective mood.

The exhibition runs until 14th August at Lucy Bell Gallery in St. Leonards On Sea, East Sussex. Click on the link on this post for further information.
