That Business of Love

Just go with it...

“I can love whoever I want.  You are what you love, not what loves you. That’s what I decided a long time ago.”  Donald Kaufman, Adaptation.


Duffy the Don of pre-digital

You soon realize that everyone is an artist in some shape or form, as everything you see can be regarded as art in some shape or form.  Living is creating.  The artists that get a name for themselves have the characters that get noticed.  “Is a plug socket art?…it is if you say it is.”  Brian Duffy, 2011. “My work ended up being 99% advertising…crap!” he reflects.  “Remember that all artists talk too much and talk mostly rubbish, including me.”  Exhibition DUFFY – A Photographic Genius currently showing at The Alinari Photography Museum in Florence until 25th March 2012.

Down and Digital

Every now and again I am reminded of the speed of change and the effects, small or great, on each and every one of us.  Today humans are born into a digital world, where some of us are only just experimenting with what this means.  As Dante looks over Piazza Santa Croce from 14th Century Florence, his view is snapped on a 21st Century screen into pixels by a new player in the digital game.
