Life is simple, at the edge.

Real diary (922)

Life is simple. Go out for holidays with only one battery.

Real diary (763)

P.s. Life is simple. Don’t make any pictures during holidays. Prepare your Lightroom-lessons.

P.s. really no idea why, but I was thinking of ‘teachers’ who crossed my path in Luca School of Arts, Brussels. They disappeared somehow.

‘The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.’ Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

P.s. According to you, what’s the story of this picture?

 Every photograph is a battle of form versus content. The good ones are on the border of failure.

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.”  Upton Sinclair


Notice to my students.

(Replace ‘book’ by ‘photo’, and ‘literature’ by ‘photography’)

Old pussy.


Musti, almost 20 years – and still avoiding to be fully honest.

Talking about being naive.


(Lately I was thinking about some final judgement by a young art ‘teacher’, concerning my pictures. She said my pictures were ‘flat’. I asked what she meant. These pictures have no ‘depth’. I asked again, not satisfied by this definition. Irritated she said: ‘No depth means these pictures are flat’. That day, about 5 years ago, I became aware that art/photography teachers are not really interested in art or photography. I’ll tell you within another 5 years what they are really interested in. Let start by tagging them….)

Talking about clichés.

The biggest cliche in photography is sunrise and sunset. – Catherine Opie

And autumn.
