Guru and Dylan in the trainstation
Bunny, Dylan, Kelly and Guru, overlooking Biarritz.
Kelly and Dylan.
Guru. A legend in documentary photography.
Have to get up at 4.20 to catch a flight. Only real option is to drink a lot of champagne and not fall asleep. Right?
Tonights playlist on spotify.
This is it. The first real vacation in years and years. Last night we had a summerdinner before everybody leaves. Its nice having dinner in the rain.
At the same time I cant wait for the autumn to come. Haven’t felt this inspired in a long time. Ideas and plans…
Came to think of the summers one spent growing up. First, skateboarding all summer. Later working. Feels a bit strange to think about it. I used to work all summer to make money for film and canvases. And then use it all up on strange little projects. When reviewing it now there were always dark skies present, both in photographs and paintings. Maybe I’m not a summer person, or maybe the Swedish summer is always cloudy. Doesn’t really matter now.
Dinner in Humlegården with friends
Spent a summer photographing roads.
Spent another summer photographing street lights. Who hasn’t?
Two days left, then Biarritz. Went with Sebastian to see the new Transformers movie this evening. The thing is I sort of get that kind of movies. Its nice just watching well produced stuff for a couple of hours. And yes, the guy is perfect as a sort of geek gone cool hero. And yes, Megan Fox is a perfect hot girl who is dating the guy because he is a hero and all. And yes, action is fun. Whats not good is that whole Star Wars syndrome where they have to put in comical characters to please young kids. Aren’t Transformers dorky enough as it is. Argh. Just give me back those oldschool mindnumbing actionfilms.
On to brighter things. Nailed this summers readinglist:
-David Hockner by Paul Melia and Ulrich Luckhardt
-Bloomsbury Portraits by Richard Shone
-Yves Klein by Hannah Weitemeier
-David Hockney by Marco Livingstone
-Jackson Pollock Interviews, Articles, and Reviews
Sort of wish I had the other Pollock book as well, Jacksson Pollock: New Approaches by Jeremy Lewison. Maybe next summer. And if someone knows any good books on Frank Stella, let me know. Hopefully there will be time to add some fiction to the list as well.
