Did I ever offer this link before?

Anyhow, it feels sort of topěcal, what with chatting about 'street' and all that jazz.

From French Vogue and for Grahamby:

Some Jeanloup with Ingrid Boulting.

From UK Vogue

http://ciaovogue.blogspot.com.es/2010/09/may-1969-uk-vogue.html

Arnaud de Rosnay (since lost at sea on a too ambitious solo windsurfing trip that went wrong...) in the Bahamas with a mirror optic, possibly the best such shot I've yet see. Double-page spread, symphony in blue. Without girls (and clothes) like that, there's hardly any point in pointing a camera at one, as I know only too well.

For those who know him only from the Emmanuelle movie, Just Jaeckin was big in fashion photography long before that...

Looking back makes me wonder how digital gurus can claim to have brought much to that particular table.

Thanks Rob, enjoyed the (text) vignettes of Saul Leiter. And the photo of the extremely ordered piles of disordered stuff in his appartment :)

My 'office' also boasts piles of stuff, but they are neither ordered (though I still know where everything is) and I'm afraid they don't really amount to very much at the moment. However, one day after I'm gone, I might be worth quite a lot! Which thought makes me feel so much better. Is that a demonstration of the power of positive thinking?

Peter

But it's also borne out by life: every time I dump something, I can guarantee you that within a fortnight I realise it is exactly the very thing I need to make/adapt something else. I can't convince myself that old envelopes are any different; come to think of it, I often use them as notes that I stick to the back of the door so that I remember whatever on the way out. And I do remember. Trouble is, when finally I'm out, I often forget all over again.

;-(

You guys should live in the Colorado high country. In your back yard you could keep every defunct vehicle you've ever owned, all the refrigerators that finally gave up the ghost, all the plumbing that's rusted through and become useless, and everything else that's stopped working and been replaced. I'll have to hunt for my picture of a sign in front of a farmhouse that looked almost like the junk in its yard: "Stuff for sale."

Ha ha, yes there's a bit of that up here but I have found New Mexico has even more. And often including an old school bus, possibly with someone living in it!

Pretty much any farm house in the Australian "bush" will be competitive as far as historic vehicles (see attached) and defunct white goods are concerned. Also mysterious (to me) pieces of farm machinery, totally covered in rust. I don't think I have ever seen anyone with the chutzpah to advertise their junk for sale.

I was thinking the same :-)

One of my friends did advertise two enormous balls of old rusty barbed wire as a contemporary art piece available for delivery to Fitzroy, Brunswick or St Kilda...  ;)

That's clever; did he sell? Does Saatchi know?

Let's not forget the Tate: they used to be into piles of bricks. I can't remember which establishment was into elephant turds, but as per the old British saying: where's there muck there's brass...

I think they are still maturing in his home paddock. He may be waiting for the market to come up a bit.

That reminds me though : in his day job, he's a contractor who ploughs fields, harvests wheat etc. It turns out the machines are now driven by pre-programmed GPS units, so they move along perfectly parallel paths over several kms. The accuracy is such that the furrows all align.

In principle program any path you wish into the GPS... so if you'd like to realise a very large drawing in the Western Districts of Victoria...

It is either David Sedaris or Garrison Keillor who has a story about an antique shop/gallery selling used farm machinery for home decoration that kept getting one item returned - a "muck spreader" that despite frequent steam cleaning still gave off a faint but unmistakable aroma of its former life when summer temperatures rose.
