Zo was dit blad ontstaan als het een bekende glossy was geweest. Ik had Marco half-verleid met een glas champagne teveel, hij had ja gezegd en als hoofdredacteur-vooreen-dag een lijst namen gestuurd die hem ongetwijfeld on-ge-loof-lijk inspireren. De rest van de redactie zou met die lijst aan de slag gaan en een blad tikken. Nu was er geen redactie, helaas. Geen Marco Borsato, gelukkig. Een gekkenhuis, absoluut. Ook was er een lijst kunstenaars die ik per se in het blad wilde. Een lijst illustratoren, fotografen, videokunstenaars en andere artiesten die nog niet zo bekend zijn als ze zouden moeten zijn. Ik had ze op Twitter kunnen zetten, of op Facebook. Ze overleveren aan de grillen van het internet waarbij ze aandachtig bekeken zouden worden, en daarna achteloos weg geklikt. In plaats daarvan besloot dit magazine te maken. Terwijl ik dit type weet ik nog niet hoeveel pagina’s je nu in je hand hebt, ik weet niet hoe de cover eruit ziet (heeft de Golden Retriever met het glanzende-DavidHasselhoff-haar het gehaald?), ik weet niet of er ooit nog een editie komt. Er was geen uitgever, geen geld, geen plan. En toch ligt er nu een magazine voor je. Tijd voor champagne.

“Afgelopen week was ik op een borrel in The Grand Hotel; zie ik Marco Borsato staan. Hij zei natuuuuurlijk ‘ja’. Dus hij aanwijzen welke artiesten hij in het blad wilde, en wij tikken. Ja, uhuh, gek-ken-huis dat het was!”

07 I’ve never been much for quotes. They all seem too random and usable for any given situation. When i was visiting Belgrade (Serbia) this summer, i walked into a gallery on one of the main shopping streets. It turned out to be a gallery for art students of the nearby art academy. In the back there was a woman working on a computer, facing the wall, not looking up or down as we entered the gallery. The gallery was empty except for the paintings on display, her workplace and this quote.

CHRIS SAUNDERS

I LOVE THE NATIONAL. AND SWEDISH GIRLS. Chris Saunders is an all-over-the-world based photographer, and probably the best one I have ever met. I met him at a crazy South-African rooftop party in Amsterdam where he was roasting complete chickens on a burning shopping cart. I asked him to write this story because I didn’t understand anything of all the different messages I was receiving about him being in a different country every day this summer, but apparently Chris is very well with jet lags.

This year was my first year living in Europe. I got to travel to some of the most amazing places over my one year living grant at Fabrica (Benetton’s Creative Research Facility in Treviso Italy, which by the way is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been too) and so on my vacation where I travelled to Copenhagen, Gotteburg and Hvar island in Croatia, I tried to take atleast a couple of snap shots without getting too pro about everything while in vacation mode.

‘Should I be shooting this?’, since I have been a professional Photographer this question has always been on my mind in situations. Problem is when you dedicate most of your time to something you love, I find I have to learn to separate myself sometimes, in my life this means leaving the camera at home. I could kick myself for the numerous times that I was out and about in some of the most amazing places without a camera. What I have learnt from these times is two things though, get a smaller camera and force myself to go back to those places I have in my mind from before and shoot them.

Been at Fabrica came with its amazing Travel opportunities work wise too, I was in NYC, Paris and I got a new perspective on my home town of Johannesburg travelling back and forth from it a couple of times this year too. Getting back to the real vacation here in Europe over the amazing summer of 2010 though, you see I find it difficult to differentiate between work and holiday travel already and I’m only 200 words in here. Over the year I had completely drained myself creatively, working hard on squeezing every last drop of inspiration


into Colors Magazine which is part of Fabrica, as well as other publications around Europe (who I’m contractual not suppose to work for). This in mind I arrived in Copenhagen, my first stop on the vacation, completely drained as well as overwhelmed with the dreary weather and amazing city that I was surrounded by. I think that the photos I take are often personal visages in changed form, I often get attracted to images which I shoot which feel like they resemble something in my life or how I feel. Hope that explains the Dog from Copenhagen which is somehow resembling of my energy on the first leg. After that I headed off to two more destinations, Göteborg for the Way Out West festival which was amazing fun. Shocked by the crowds of beautiful people I did the shot the ‘Saddest Girl in Sweden.’ which was shot during a performance of The National.

Then after a two day journey over to Croatia and eventually onto the Island of Hvar where I spent almost two weeks in the sun. Here I took very little images, as we where a big group and spent most of our time on a boat or in the water, I found myself nervous taking my un-insured beast of a SLR into dangers way, instead I used my friends Instamatic’s to ease my shutter addiction. Problem is that Facebook ended up with most of the images, which is a big effort to go through as they didn’t really edit them down. To be honest I’m not much of a writer and that’s why I take photographs, but I tried bleeding my mind for this article. Think of it as a written blurb from an ADD visual person. Thanks for reading.
