Anselm Kiefer at White Cube, Bermondsey

I hope to go back next weekend as I only had about five minutes in there today but whoa! It brought me up short - I've visited White Cube a number of times previously but I've never wanted to go back to revisit something I've seen until today. It's late and I'm tired so I'll not write now - hopefully I will have more to say after a longer visit. All I would say is that if you get the chance, do go - it's not particularly child friendly, I'd suggest, but for adults it is thought-provoking, stimulating.


Oh, and for the photo nerds: taken with a Fuji X-Pro 2 and 35mm f2. I don't know what shutter speed or aperture - sorry! A bit of fiddling in photoshop to straighten it up and here it is.

UPDATE: 
Went back yesterday and the exhibition was in the process of being dismantled. :(

My trouble is

when I'm confronted with a request for headshots, say, I can't just stop there I have to start experimenting. I mean, you wouldn't put this on Spotlight or the IMDb now would you? Ah well, I wouldn't do it if I couldn't, if you see what I mean. Above is the ever-beautiful Claire-Monique Martin taken on Friday. Other photographs were procured.

Trump'ed on

You're probably sick of reading Niemöller's quote but here it is again - why not have another butcher's':

"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."

(from The Holocaust Encyclopedia).

I've read it so many times throughout my life that when it appeared in my Facebook feed I'd roll my eyes and scroll past wondering why some unimaginative ass had bothered to post it yet again - didn't we all already know it off by bloody heart?

And now here I am, another unimaginative ass, posting it on the web and ensuring that both my readers are pissed off and bored. Only it does have a new urgency now doesn't it? I mean with The Orange One in power it becomes resonant again…
