Alan Charlesworth – Brotherhood Of Bears

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

Alan Charlesworth  - Brotherhood Of Bears

“For well over a decade I have been involved in the Bear community. Many of the men I have photographed slowly came to terms with their own identity, much like myself. I was aware of the Bear community in the late 1990’s, but was an outsider. Despite being a gay man it was difficult for me to relate to these men. I am not a Bear, but I do adore the brotherhood and its camaraderie. It took me years to become comfortable around those I admired so much from afar.” – Alan Charlesworth about ‘Brotherhood Of Bears’

Friday Quote: Federico García Lorca

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

The Weeping

I have shut my windows.
I do not want to hear the weeping.
But from behind the grey walls.
Nothing is heard but the weeping.

There are few angels that sing.
There are few dogs that bark.
A thousand violins fit in the palm of the hand.
But the weeping is an immense angel.
The weeping is an immense dog.
The weeping is an immense violin.
Tears strangle the wind.
Nothing is heard but the weeping.

Federico García Lorca, 1898 – 1936

Yuda Braun - White Soldier

The project “White Soldier” by the Israeli artist Yuda Braun is an interesting and thought-giving intervention into public space. Dressed and armed like a soldier, completely covered with white paint, he moves through towns, villages and landscapes of Israel and the West Bank.
Yuda Braun’s actions were documented by the Berlin-based photographer Alexander Janetzko.
