Tennessee Williams Birthday

Tennessee Williams (1956) by Yousuf Karsh 

❝ Revolution only needs good dreamers who remember 
their dreams. 

❝ When so many are lonely as seem to be lonely, it would be 
inexcusably selfish to be lonely alone. 

❝ There is a time for departure even when there's no certain place to go. 

- Tennessee Williams - 

March 26, 1911 - February 25, 1983

Aku (Me) 

If my time has come 
I don't want anyone to beg 
Not even you 

I don't need that sniveling! 

I'm but a wild animal 
Exiled even from his own group 

Even if bullets pierce my skin 
I will still enrage and attack 

Wounds and poison I'll take running 

Until the pain leaves 

And I will care even less 
I want to live a thousand more years

On Eikoh Hosoe Birthday ♥♥

To me photography can be simultaneously both a record and a 'mirror' or 'window' of self-expression. The camera is generally assumed to be unable to depict that which is not visible to the eye. And yet the photographer who wields it well can depict what lies unseen in his memory. 

- Eikoh Hosoe -

Happy Birthday, Master

Humble Tribute to Pasolini ♥♥

An artist, if he's unselfish and passionate, is always a living protest. Just to open his mouth is to protest: against conformism, against what is official, public, or national, what everyone else feels comfortable with, so the moment he opens his mouth,
an artist is engaged, because opening his mouth is always scandalous.

I may be an unbeliever, but I am an unbeliever who has 
a nostalgia for a belief.
