I rather like this work by the Swedish painter Karin Broos from 2009. It is photorealistic but not entirely so. It’s true for the girl, but the background with the clouds and trees mirrored in the water I find a bit surrealistic, and also somewhat threatening.
Maybe it’s boring for other people to watch the photos from my journeys. As an experiment I’ve tried to variate myself a little. I’ve done a montage with photos mixed with short clips from “Never Forget” with Gréta Salóme and Jónsi. The song was Iceland’s contribution to the Eurovision song contest in 2012.
One of my favourite Frenchmen is a small,
schrewd man with a bewinged helmet,
living in a village in Amorica surrounded
by Roman legions
This is one of my favourites, Ruud van Overdijk, a Dutch singer and musical artist. Apart from having a beautiful and passionate voice he’s a good actor, and he has lots of charisma and stage presence. Here he sings Billie Jean by Michael Jackson.
