“Bend the rules and play tricks with the mind; make documents of moments that have never existed.” – Peter Funch

When these moments occur I find they are full of humour. I really enjoy finding them.

Art Beyond Gimmicks

“Any entertainment that aspires to art should not work with the audience like an advertisement. Trying to please the audience lowers the level of sophistication constantly…When you try always to please the audience, you have to produce more and more automatic gimmicks, more and more plastic…As artists, we have the responsibility of raising the mentality of the audience. People might have to reach out with a certain amount of strain, but it’s worth it.”

From Chogyam Trungpa, “Endless Richness,” in DHARMA ART

Street photography: week seven

“When you have to shoot: shoot! Don’t talk!” – Il Brutto
Make a picture containing The Good, The Bad and The Ugly – Jens Olof Lasthein

I took this photograph while walking to work one morning. Rather than just walking mindlessly, I decided to take my camera and spend my time looking. It is a very simple photograph but it speaks loudly.
