Black, White, and Gay......

"Robert Mapplethorpe knew something. He is my dead person I want to have a coversation with. I don't think he would tell me this "thing" he knew. He would just listen to me, to decide if I knew anything about "it". Whether I did or did not, he wouldn't tell me that either." -excerpt from my photo journal, October 16, 2006.

These images were done as part of a short course dealing with socially taboo images, focusing on Robert Mapplethorpe and Joel Peter Witkin. It certainly is interesting throwing yourself, literally, into something like that. We all draw on our influences, but I have never so directly tried to mimic one before. Very fun.

Lately life has been much:
Drinking, complaining/stressing about jobs, dancing, aching, coffee, bike rides, scooter dreams.
I have decided:
Vodka is not for me, this city is a real downer, my feelings first.
Here are a few snapshots of it all:
I have been shooting lots of film lately, but not processing it. So when that happens, better images.

Lookin' like a slob.

So I am having a show tonight. If you can make it, come. I figured it wouldn't hurt to post this lil' blogger blog about it. Who knows. I've already sent out so many invites. I hope it goes well. I made some really yummmmm hummus and some really cool "Cut Out" work.
Check it out.
Oh yeah, it starts at 7. Goes till ten, don't give the guy at the door any money.
