Richard Mosse’s “Infra” series, shot in 16mm infrared film, captures images of the ongoing conflict between rebel militants and the Congolese national army.

"I wanted to confront this military reconnaissance technology, to use it reflexively in order to question the ways in which war photography is constructed."

Shae’s photographic practice uses painted photography, a technique employed to
 add colour to photographs before colour processing was invented. 
In a world where images can be digitally manipulated, finding a photographer’s 
practice that explores alternative methods is rare and really refreshing. Her painted 
photographs seem mythical, situating models in an eerie and beautiful wilderness.

Such an amazing artist!

Life is a game and true love is a trophy.

—Rufus Wainwright

They say true love only comes around once and you have to hold out and be strong until then. I have been waiting. I have been searching. I am a man under the moon, walking the streets of earth until dawn. There’s got to be someone for me. It’s not too much to ask. Just someone to be with. Someone to love. Someone to give everything to. Someone.

—Henry Rollins

First of all, love is a joint experience between two persons — but the fact that it is a joint experience does not mean that it is a similar experience to the two people involved. There are the lover and the beloved, but these two come from different countries. Often the beloved is only a stimulus for all the stored-up love which had lain quiet within the lover for a long time hitherto. And somehow every lover knows this. He feels in his soul that his love is a solitary thing. He comes to know a new, strange loneliness and it is this knowledge which makes him suffer. So there is only one thing for the lover to do. He must house his love within himself as best he can; he must create for himself a whole new inward world — a world intense and strange, complete in himself. Let it be added here that this lover about whom we speak need not necessarily be a young man saving for a wedding ring — this lover can be man, woman, child, or indeed any human creature on this earth.

Now, the beloved can also be of any description. The most outlandish people can be the stimulus for love. A man may be a doddering great-grandfather and still love only a strange girl he saw in the streets of Cheehaw one afternoon two decades past. The preacher may love a fallen woman. The beloved may be treacherous, greasy-headed, and given to evil habits. Yes, and the lover may see this as clearly as anyone else — but that does not affect the evolution of his love one whit. A most mediocre person can be the object of a love which is wild, extravagant, and beautiful as the poison lilies of the swamp. A good man may be the stimulus for a love both violent and debased, or a jabbering madman may bring about in the soul of someone a tender and simple idyll. Therefore, the value and quality of any love is determined solely by the lover himself.

It is for this reason that most of us would rather love than be loved. Almost everyone wants to be the lover. And the curt truth is that, in a deep secret way, the state of being beloved is intolerable to many. The beloved fears and hates the lover, and with the best of reasons. For the lover is forever trying to strip bare his beloved. The lover craves any possible relation with the beloved, even if this experience can cause him only pain.

Are you in Barcelona? Well if so you can not miss one of the most intense artistic experiences of the season presents the always great Michael Leal in the creative space ” Straight Fire “at number 26 of the Parliament street of Sant Antoni, of Barcelona. This time, the work of Leal, ” MAD FACE “is a project started two years ago and focuses on exposing the most beautiful side and darker at the same time human. The intimate and everyday they go out, and the naked body is mixed with the urban setting as posters, graffiti, collages and ink colors that form the secret language of the artist.

Kinda bullshite but I still dig

"Bull Profile Series" by Roy Lichtenstein, 1973

In these prints, Lichtenstein studies the progress of an image from figurative representation to abstraction. The initially recognisable form of the bull in the first panel is, by the sixth, transformed into a geometric abstraction. Gradually, the animal is reduced to its structure - backbone, horns, tail and foreleg - until the only remaining trace is a curved line suggesting horns in the upper-right corner. The relationship between figuration and abstraction is one of the basic issues of twentieth-century art.
