This Friday the 13th: Strange.rs presents Strangelives!
Strangelives is a series of fictional biographies told with images rather than words. It is the recognition that any life, when viewed from the exterior, consists of a hodgepodge of anecdote, happenstance, mood, and place. To construct a life, to imagine the existence of another singular human being, is to bear witness to a string of accident and intention, risks taken, adventures endured, loves won or lost. Strangelives are the stories told by a collective of photographers from all over the world, and are pieced together with images that share a common aesthetic and narrative sensibility, despite being completely unrelated in space and time. These photographic poems en prose are intended less to provide a linear narrative of a fictional life than to invite viewers to re-arrange, re-interpret, and re-imagine each individual existence according to their own guise and pleasure. They are a reminder of the extraordinary chance of each and every life, whether real or fictional, strange or ordinary.
Exhibition opens: Friday, 13 September 2013

It’s been a while since I posted anything of my own work so here’s a piece of our Habitat that we built when we were at Lefkada Island this June.
It’s a privilege to see it posted with so many exquisite photos in Holidays section of dearest Le Journal de la Photographie - one of my favorite places for photography online.

Photogenic Alchemy is an exercise in controlled chaos and a study in the science of art. By breaking down silver salts and celluloid to it’s elemental form, I’ve created a dark and gritty apocalyptic world. It is a world that seems to be dissolving right before our eyes. Toxic and fascinating, each new roll of film left me intrigued. I couldn’t wait to try the next substance on my ever increasing list.

I was entering into another dimension of existence. ‘I’ was not. Everything was totally dissolved into a flow of matter continuously moving. No time, no space. A feeling of color, but indescribable. Feeling of movement mainly. Awareness that I, the others, are only collections of clusters of molecules, which are all part of the same stream.
— Timothy Leary
