Introducing an artist #18: Daisuke YokotaI recently saw his work in Photography Museum Amsterdam (Foam), and it took my breath away. Such a refreshing style and working method (as can be read below). I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
From the website of Foam:
'Yokota has created a small image-making factory in his apartment, which he uses to create his haunting, distorted black-and-white images. Using a compact digital camera to create prints that can be considered as his raw material, Yokota endlessly rephotographed each image with a 6x7 film camera. The developing process and the potential of analogue image-making are pushed to the extreme to create imperfections and visual noise. Experimenting and trying to avoid doing anything the same way twice is essential to Daisuke Yokota's method. To produce a large number of variations in the final image, he sometimes re-photographed it ten or more times. By doing so he not only t
Introducing an artist #17: Yamamoto MasaoFrom the artists' website:
'Most of his photographic works are in monochrome and its aged texture reminds us of “memories dropping out of someone’s drawers”. Snapshot sized, yet speechlessly beautiful pictures have been exhibited in groups of ten to several hundred spread across the wall, or sometimes placed in a small box. Tranquility around each photograph filled the entire space. Strangely, the existence of a single piece of art and a whole installation seemed to be equal. It recalls oriental and Japanese ideas about the relationships between the world and self. Western audiences pick up those essences and are the reason why his work is widely appreciated in the western world.'

Introducing an artist #16: Dirk BraeckmanDirk Braeckman (born in 1958 in Eeklo, Belgium) is a Belgian photographer who lives and works in Ghent, Belgium.
'Dirk Braeckman is one of Belgium’s leading artistic photographers. In each of his monumental photographic works, he creates an enclosed, isolated world that appears endless in its tactility, while at the same time gives short shrift to the illusions of the medium. These images do not aim to convey anything and yet they are suggestive of complete narratives.'

Inexpensive prints for sale!If I could, I would make photos, ask for nothing in return and give away prints for free. Unfortunately, that doesn't work very well: equipment and printing photos for exhibitions costs money. At the moment, I have 24 photos printed. They have been exhibited and are now in search of a new home. Below you'll find a link to all the available prints. I don't charge a lot of money (15-22 Euro). I hope some of you will be interested in purchasing a print, they're much better off on your wall than in my closet. Send me a message or e-mail me if you're interested. Thanks!

My top 15 albums (and more) of 2013I've been doing this yearlist kind of thing for a while now, and I think it's loads of fun, so here is my list of musical favourites of the year 2013. This year I couldn't choose what albums to feature, so I highlighted fifteen albums, and when you scroll down, you will find quite a few more.
If you want to listen to the music, click on the album title and it will bring you to one of my favourite album tracks.
Cult of Luna - Vertikal & Vertikal II
This is on top of the list because I ordered it alphabetically, but it also deserves a first place because it might be my favourite album of the year. Cult of Luna is a Swedish band, they play a style that is often classified as post-metal and sludge. The concept of this album is the 1927 film Metropolis. Sonic themes include 'machinery, repetition and clear, linear structures', which makes it a dark, industrial sounding album, but it still
Introducing an artist #15: Tekla McInerneyTekla McInerney is an American artist, specialised in monotypes.
From the artists' website:
"Each of my monotypes [unique and worked spontaneously] most often yields a landscape with water — moving, still, or frozen. The prints are not direct translations of named locations. They are moments I recall — from the coast of New England to the Antarctic peninsula."
"Tekla McInerney‘s monotypes are striking images and bring to mind everything from traditional Japanese prints to Anton Corbijn’s photographs of Joy Division. These are beautifully composed monotypes with their stark contrasts, use of negative space, the focussed energy, the balance and least of all the meditative qualities each print brings to bear on you.
Yet under this tranquility is a torrent of natural violence; winds shake up fore
Background information of some of my worksHere is some background information of some of my works. More will be added later in a second version of this journal.
Small scenes on the fragility of life
'This project is born out of my fascination for the fragility and temporariness of life. The idea was pretty simple: to make six still life photos of fragile subjects, such as dried flowers and a dead bird, and then print it on creased, recycled paper. Finding the right kind of paper was a bit of a challenge. Ironically, I found out that wrapping paper for fragile items was the best to print on.'
'This photo series is in the first place based upon accidence, which only later I gave the shape to that it has now. I made these photographs in a cold, but beautiful, night. The moon was very bright, and there were layers of thi

Introducing an artist #8: Stewart EdmondsonQuoting the artist, talking about his creative procress:
"Painting outside is definitely the place for me to be. I simply feel alive out there... up on the moor or down by the sea. The energy of the place is what sparks in me.
Working outside - the painting often has to be fast and dynamic, because of the changing light and weather...but for me that is a key part of the process - allowing something that is beyond my control to come through...or to come from the place into the painting. It can be direct, like rain falling or wind moving the paint. With that unpredictability comes the magic - the alchemy of it..."
Tumblr/website - Facebook (personal) -
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
