Have you ever written or received a hand written love letter? I grew up writing and reading letters, they were an important part of life. The letters I received were mostly not from other English loves but from elsewhere around the world. Could it be the French, Spanish, Italian, Americans are more romantic? Or could it be that corresponding with people in other counties created greater infatuation? It’s far quicker and easier to breeze through an email but it never feels the same, as receiving a scented handwritten letter. Nostalgia about letter writing is nothing new. Whenever a cultural form starts to die, people start celebrating it, think vinyl records, polaroid photographs, 35 mm film. Scent is a crucially important sense in humans, darkroom smells are omnipresent with me. It’s not a fetish but what is it? What do we all hanker for? It’s love, Erich Fromm expressed Modern man thinks he loses something – time – when he does not do things quickly. Yet he does not know what to do with the time he gains, except kill it” and it’s true. Whilst ‘saving’ time, give what you gain to your loves, grow your love, develop it and share it. Art, writing, painting, photographing, making love, teaches us to be more than just towards ourselves as we endeavour to make the best of our circumstances. Keep forever in mind the real ingredients of fulfilment, do not lose sight of the value of everything that is to hand. Trust more in your ideas and feelings than objects. Above all, remember to love and to care. Enjoy the beauty of existence. Have courage, to keep loving, you’ll never regret loving and being loved.

Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Showcase – 14 May 2017

“You can learn a lot about a person from the way he or she eats — about the extent of his physical appetites and the way they are satisfied. There are those who will try anything offered to them, no matter how new or exotic, while others refuse to accept any but the most familiar fare — obviously not the adventurous type to new experiences”. A quote from a book that caught my eye this week, ‘The Seducer’s Cookbook’ by Mimi Sheraton, I thoroughly recommend it. Whenever I dine out with someone new, it’s always telling to me, discovering the others’ tastes and I have discovered that’s it’s not just what the other selects, it’s how they consume it, I love experimenting! Whether we’re discussing culinary advice, as artists we are constantly aware that art itself, is the foundation for any experience. Art has an immortal lifeline, it evolves and progresses. Each day new art is created, because each day we are evolving. Artists have an essential role in art, initiating conversation with their audience. We work simulanteously creating unique moments than can never be replicated and thus this leads on to this weeks Mobile Photography and Art Showcase. The experience is the most important part of any art, enjoy!
