Variations


Un retour aux sources

I've decided to take a more personal turn with this thing which,
I know, I haven't kept up as regularly as i should.
This might be an ego thing, I couldn't deny it, I guess...
However I prefer to see it as a document in time
of my progress. How things evolve and maintain themselves
is a process which interests me a lot. So, here I go!

Le théatre de la vie

What's happening right now in
Mexico and the rest of the world is pretty bad:
the authorities are keeping the number of dead down,
and the media are hyping the whole thing up.
Between truth and lie, no one knows what to believe in anymore.

La famille Française




"Un conte de noel"
by Arnaud Desplechin

"Sometimes it seems to me it would be wonderful to be a french family. Philosophising the entire day about life, then talk a bit of crap or argue, and afterwards go eat dinner and talk some more. And of course, smoke the entire day"
by Dana Linssen,
NRC Handelsblad
on Wednesday the 25Th of February

"Soms lijkt het me heerlijk om een Franse familie te zijn. Lekker de hele dag over het leven filosoferen, daarna een beetje slap ouwehoeren of ruzie maken, dan met z'n allen aan tafel gaan en nog meer praten. En de hele dag roken natuurlijk."
door Dana Linssen,

l'armure moderne


Everybody needs something to create
the illusion of protection.
It could be a phone, a jacket,
sunglasses or make-up.
Without it, we feel insecure and naked.
What about you?

Bérénice

"Pour jamais! Ah! Seigneur, songez-vous en vous-même
Combien ce mot est affreux quand on aime?
Dans un mois, dans un an, combien souffrirons-nous,
Seigneur que tant de mers me séparent de vous?
Que le jour recommence et que le jour finisse
Sans que jamais Titus puisse voir Bérénice...
Sans que de tout le jour je puisse voir Titus!"

Acte IV, Scène V
Bérénice, de Jean Racine

One is from the 19th century,
the other from the 21st century.
Is there any difference?

naissance des pieuvres

"Naissance des pieuvres"
by Céline Sciamma

madame est servie!

le crâne vide

Hair has always been of great importance for women. Long hair is not only seen as a sex symbol, but it is a sign of wealth as well. This is why deliberately shaving your hair off is being perceived as refusal of society. The most famous example is Britney Spears. However, she was not the only one: Angeline Jolie shaved her hair off as well. To me, women with no hair have a singular beauty which is a bit otherwordly. But: "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", so see for yourself!





So,what do you think?
