Outside of a dog a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read. Groucho Marx


Later in the long windowless corridor of the museum she appeared again, I watched her studying the artifacts in the vitrines. As she moved and turned between the glass cases I became mesmerised by the nape of her neck and her dark eyes.

Kodachrome Luigi Ghirri

New essay by Francesco Zanot The meaning that I am tr ying to render through my work is a verification of how it is still possible to desire and face a path of knowledge, to be able finally to distinguish the precise identity of man, things, life, from the image of man, things, and life.

From the remotest nebulæ and from the revolving double stars, we have descended to the minutest organisms of animal creation, whether manifested in the depths of ocean or on the surface of our globe, and to the delicate vegetable germs which clothe the naked declivity of the ice-crowned mountain summit; and here we have been able to arrange these phenomena according to partially known laws; but other laws of a more mysterious nature rule the higher spheres of the organic world, in which is comprised the human species in all its varied conformation, its creative intellectual power, and the languages to which it has given existence.

Alexander von Humboldt, Kosmos (1877)

We are encouraged not to think about what new technology will take from us, only what it will offer. I think there are many ways of making and thinking and being, always shifting and finding new cross-overs. That’s not how digital media seems to work; it’s harder to experiment, to break ‘the rules’. I love it when I make mistakes because I can learn from happy accidents, different sides of the same coin.

Winters, like ice ages, are Janus faced, for after the freeze comes thaw and flood, as water is returned to life and movement. Freeze, thaw, flood: the great climatic cycles that created the topography of the nor thern hemisphere, and which continue to shape the idea of winter that lies deep in our cultural imagination.

Blink. Our eyes open to the same world; a world altered, we know, but minutely and in ways we cannot apprehend. Blink; it is the same. Blink; and still it is the same. Blink, blink, blink...again it is the same. Blink. Our eyes open onto a new world. Nothing is as it was. Everything is born anew. Blink. And again the world is saturated with novelty. Blink, Blink, Blink...and each time an impossibly fresh scene arises. The Blink of Creation... Har vie Ferguson

We gaze into the depth of clouds or the heavens and perceive only flatness. We stumble into blinding light or palpable darkness. We may recoil from what we see, confused, intrigued or seduced, sometimes all at once. There are moments when our eyesight is all we want it to be and moments when it betrays us. Moments when the meaning of the world seems to be right there, inscribed on its sur face and moments when appearance is inscrutable. David Campany

When I was growing up, my favourite thing to do was to look at the postcards and imagine my grandmother’s life, her charac ter and her intimate thoughts. Time has left its marks on their surfaces and each image took me to a dif ferent and unknown world.
