je t'aimerai plus fort
a year ago i got a random email from someone named raynal pellicer who was supposedly writing a book about photobooth images and asked if he could use some of mine. i gave permission (not having any expectations of what would come out of it) and... look what showed up in my mailbox today!!! it's the most gorgeous book, hardback with over 300 pages of history and gorgeous photos. ok really i'm not sure what it *says* since i ended up with the french version (instead of the english one), but i'm not complaining because 1) i'm a huge francophile and 2) look who's on the cover, between edie sedgwick and superman! um wow. and my talented friend andrea is in it as well! this made my week :)
here's the translation of my statement:
i am intrigued by the sense of nostalgia and a connection with the past.
i delight in the challenge of "thinking outside the box" while staying inside four little black and white rectangles.
i admire the contradictions of simplicity and novelty. finding beauty in the imperfections...
