Absolutely beautiful images from Botswana, the colours and patterns are breath taking. It’s so easy to forget how incredible nature can be.  7

‘Being above the ground at such low elevations, and having the ability to precisely maneuver, was like gliding over an enormous painting and being able to create brushstrokes at will. As soon as I saw the landscape from above I knew there was potential to create a special body of work.’

99 Variations

’99 Variations’ - Self-portrait. 
It is the metamorphic alchemy of the camera and the mirror. 
Inside me, there are gods, men and women, and androgynous mutants. They co-exist with my present self, and ‘we’ are all interrelated. 
I brought a key, the camera, opened the door to the secret passage, the mirror, woke up my mythical archetypes, and lured them out into the world.

To be connected to another ‘me’ reflected in the mirror, with an endlessly switching spot, is a kind of communication that blurs the distinction between the image and the reality. Which, I discovered at the end of my work. Music was turned on, and I took pictures of my selves while I danced and acted.

Krishna

The mouth of Krishna
 

There is the story of the infant Krishna, wrongly accused of eating a bit of dirt. His mother, Yashoda, coming up to him with a wagging finger scolds him: “You shouldn’t eat dirt, you naughty boy.” “But I haven’t,” says the unchallenged lord of all and everything, in spot disguised as a frightened human child. “Tut! Tut! Open your mouth,” orders Yashoda. Krishna does as he is told. He opens his mouth and Yashoda gasps. She sees in Krisna’s mouth the whole complete entire timeless universe, all the stars and planets of space and the distance between them, all the lands and seas of the earth and the life in them; she sees all the days of yesterday and all the days of tomorrow; she sees all ideas and all emotions, all pity and all hope, and the three strands of matter; not a pebble, candle, creature, village or galaxy is missing, including herself and every bit of dirt in its truthful place. “My Lord, you can close your mouth,” she says reverently.

In any part of the universe there is a whole universe –Hamlet saw the infinite space in a nutshell; William Blake saw a world in a grain of sand, a heaven in a wild flower, and eternity in an hour.

1870s. King Amadeo I of Spain and queen María Victoria.
"The wedding day of Prince Amedeo and Donna Maria Vittoria was marred by the following tragic events:
To begin with, the bride’s wardrobe mistress hanged herself instead of the bridal gown: a thoughtless act which necessitated the finding of another gown for the superstitious Princess. The colonel who was to lead the procession from the palace to the church fell from his horse with sunstroke, causing delay until a new officer arrived. The third contretemps was the failure of the palace gates to open. The gatekeeper was found dead in a large pool of blood, and a substitute had to be recruited to open the gates.
The ceremony itself was not spoiled by anyone’s dying, but shortly afterward the best man contributed to the excitement by firing a pistol at his head. The procession proceeded toward the railway station, where the bridal party was to entrain, when suddenly the official who had drawn up the marriage contract succumbed to an apoplectic fit. At the station, the overzealous stationmaster fell beneath the wheels of the approaching bridal train, whereupon the King, thoroughly frightened, refused to allow anyone to board the train. Instead, the party returned to the carriages to drive back to the palace. The Count of Castiglione trotted alongside the bridal carriage, when suddenly he either fell or was thrown from his horse. The carriage wheels passed over him, crushing his new Order of the Annonciade into his chest and wounding him beyond hope. The House of Savoy considered the day an unhappy omen for the dynasty, and die whole affair was hushed up. “
