This one lasts 20 minutes.Hold a deep breath, it's worth the shot !
Preparing my headsets for the daily battle against life itself. I just love it when I quickly tune to different types of music within a very short period of time. From Primordial to Above& Beyond, from Fuel to Steel Pulse,etc...
another irrelevant entry just to say...nothing at all !
For my frequent Russian visitors: love you guys :3 ++
" So grievous through the night she calls the beauty I once lost I mourn thee my beloved "
" Beyond the veils of dawn
from where she Siren calls "
It all started from a random shoot. I thought it was high time to made something, anything...I decided to go a bit dark, illustrating a blend of Morticia, Luisa Casati and an obviously widowed Alice. Sheima, the model, is having the most adequate profile for this multiple role playing : Dreamy and phantasmagoric at a time, cruel ,enigmatic yet frightened at another.
However, moving on to what seems to be the most important part about these photographs. I suddenly remembered my former high school Arabic teacher's sayings when he criticized my photos (years ago) and said : " You can always perceive a new and completely different meaning of your photographs, even hundred years later after taking them "
Now it makes perfect sense. He's damn right, even though he've always been such a pain in the *bip*.
Being nostalgic these days have sort of helped me gain new visions : some of them are actually old, and the rest have always been existent, but now they're aging.All of this blah just to conclude that these pictures are made to embrace Tristania's Widow's Weed album : perfect mood, lyrics, sororities...As I personally embraced every musical note of theirs,every enchanting line, verse, idea...Ah, that was years ago. A remake of the past ? Let's say just a hint...
Yet, am still gonna make you hear this following enormous masterpiece : (Sounds might frighten those who are used to calm/peaceful music)
* letting my fingers floating spontanesouy on keyboard *
All of these chemical reactions to make you feel overwhelmed, delighted and petrified just by hearing the right tunes, while picturing the right place and getting a hint about the suitable time. Perfect bite? Definitely !
Ahhhh ! Just enjoy life ,people, as long as you're living, don't let anything/anyone ruin your actual/future happiness/satisfaction precious moments. More than glad to be your back up, let's smash some faces !
Since I haven't updated this blog (nor any other) lately, I suggest ,to myself, these as a good start :
So, these two particular shots are my current source of satisfaction. Thanks to these wonderful people's collaboration, I've made it this far and participated with these two prints in a collective exhibition.
For the first picture, I've kind of visualized the whole idea (including the model, outfit, lightening,location,etc...) during my ironically busy summer days. Since I was being idle all the time, I thought of illustrating that frequent particular state.How do I picture it? Believe it or not, the photograph is definitely like I did imagine it months ago. Idle : floating without reaching any purpose, being somehow kept on the ground, not going so far with your thoughts/actions, queer atmosphere, looks like being jailed behind dirty glass, white,asleep,indifferent,fragile...All of these tags are leading to a main word : Idle ! The second one....I allow myself to repeat over and over again that the view leads to the most beautiful nightscape in all over Tunis. So, the second pic is good enough to vanquish my harsh critics about my own work. That was actually the perfect moment, because thanks to the car lights, I wouldn't have got a well-lit back/pearl/hair. Anyway, am not quite sure if this shot's title ( I named it "Through Vanity") would give a clue about its meanings but I'd help.It have all started with an existential question : does rich people feel the emptiness that strikes poor people's hearts?
So, it's basically an illustration of a thoughtful person, a deep moment of reflection that requires inspiration, a large perception and wide solid-angle. Beginning from my own paradigm : everytime I see such scenery, with these lights/houses/nature/people in motion and quite similar nightscapes, I spontaneously open eyes,mind and heart, thinking about the rest of the world, the persons in need/dying/suffering/dead/sick/poor and wonder if they cope well enough with this cruel modern age.
Anyway, I am writing a lot (that's because I miss my keyboard)
Oh, something else !
Feel free, people, to check this interesting local webzine : www.cosmo-culture.com
Am gonna write some art/literature/cinema/music reviews (in french) and soon enough, broadcasting some music, interesting news and so many other stuff worth talking about in their Radio station :Culture-R.
Have a nice week ,cupcakes !
Oh, it definitely happens. My laptop is dead, I might lose some of my files *cries out loud*
Am using my brother's crappy computer.I cannot make descent entries until I repair my bitchy Toshiba.
That's sad ! I'd miss blogging and tumbling.
hope you'll hear from me soon, people!
