Feature: Christian Garcia Fonseca Secher

The LIFESTYLE Collective expands. Were going going, back back to Madrid Madrid. Christian Garcia Fonseca Secher balances a life of many facets: various cultures, experiences, and mediums make up this one man. His work as an instrumentalist and vocalist through various projects bring out the different tones that Reflection and Response can exude. Christian shows us how creation is a genre in itself that can spread over eclectic places and spaces. Peep the dialogue below with examples of this artist’s work!

Christian

I only write when something happens, but when it does, the pen can´t stop.

Leading off with some basics, where are you from? And where are you at?

CGFS: Well, My mother’s family comes from Denmark, and I was born there, but I grew up in Madrid Centro. Is good to have two natural born cultures, it makes you see things in two different ways, have to sights to everything. But if there´s no big changes, I will stay in Madrid as long as I can. This city provides me all what I need, and sometimes it can make you feel small at the same time, but I have my small town in the mountains, an hour from Madrid, to breathe and chill when it´s necessary. I must recognize that I see to many things going wrong in the country I live in, and I fall many times in comparing with the good things Denmark has, but in spite of it all, this is where I come from and I will stay while my situation is sustainable.

 What does Reflection and Response mean to you?

CGFS: I think is a good opportunity to get to know myself and the little artist I have inside, who don’t show up that often. It´s funny to think that before we made our first video clip (8.A.M.) with my band (Welt de Klasse) there was not that many that knew that I had a band or that I had been making music since I was 17 (even my family). I must recognize that the big change came after I met Peter Müller and Vivian Garcia a year ago. They invited me for the first time in my life to get on the stage (and I´m 30 years old). To work with them is always a pleasure, because there´s absolutely freedom to do what comes from inside. They are so talented that makes you feel so grateful when they ask to collaborate in their songs. It´s a gift and I try to do my best, this is the reflection.

What else have you been working on recently? What are you looking to work on next?

CGFS: Right now the other half of the band (Turco) is living in Chile. The situation for the youth in Spain is horrible, so he decided to get a life in another country. But we have still projects in mind. We are planning  at the moment a new video that will be recorded on July 2013 for our new song “Carne y Chocolate”, produced by Fermin Bouza and with Vivian Garcia as special guest making the chorus. This song is part of a new project we started called Mugre, where we try to separate our music of the Rap style, making the beats sound different, dark and dirty. In the case of “Carne y Chocolate” I can say that this is a real scary song, I´ve never listen to anything like that. I guess there will be many that will not be in the mood to listen to it, and that´s why we wanted to make a video for the song, to explain the scary moment the youth are living, the no future feeling. We will be working again for this clip with Luis Plaza (Luis Plaza Films), who also made our first video 8 A.M. We have been friends since school, and working together is easy because we understand each other really well, and the workflow is fast as hell. So check out our facebook, Welt de Klasse in the next few months!!

Next in mind is to finish the Mugre project with Fermin Bouza. And beside Welt de Klasse I´ve started a new band called TPCE (Totally Political Christian Experience) with Moez Khan and James Jarman, two good friends and musicians, where I play the spanish cajón flamenco, and do some raps too. The idea is to make music that makes you moove, but with lyrics that makes you think. We are working with many talented musicians, with a lot of instruments and beautiful voices, and the results can´t be better. At the same time Luis Plaza, is video recording everything we make, with both of the bands, so we have plenty of good stuff that will be ready soon!

Who or what inspires you?

CGFS: For writing, the big inspiration is living. I normally write when I have something to say to myself, or just to understand a little bit better my own situation. Is not always easy, I only write when something happens, but when it does, the pen can´t stop. About the music, the inspiration of our new songs is close to the music of the 90´s as Portishead, Kosheen, Skunk Anansie. We try to extract this dark sounds and reconstruct them to the times we are living in. Trip Hop has been dead for too long. It has to come back and hit again. Hard music for hard times! But in my basics, the real inspiration that made me start writing has always been The Spanish beginners as CPV, 7 Notas 7 Colores, Solo los Solo, Bufank. I still remember myself listening to this tapes with the only friend I had that loved hip hop, and thinking, this has to be my way of expression.

 Is there anything else you would like the Collective to know?

CGFS: Don´t close the doors of your style to anything. The musical freedom is the key.

 Shout out to…?

CGFS: My brother Turco. So long distance between us and still the same connection! Me quiere sonar Perra!

Feature: Veronica Jones

Yo, here we go—here we go—here we go again. Hope everyone had a great week. We at the LIFESTYLE are hosting Veronica Jones today as she explores her identity within music as well as in her professional pursuits. Through a blend of soulful sounds, icons, and inspiration, Veronica shares her thoughts on and relationship to Reflection and Response through music. She also names a few great artists to look up and plug into if by any chance you haven’t already. We especially want to take the time to thank Veronica for making space for us in her schedule and wish her the absolute best in her pursuit of Law. That’s enough from us; lets dive in!!

Veronica Jones

Reflection & Response in a musical context means that you are taking a really personal, introspective look into your feelings, your life, your relationships, and also taking time to empathize with & understand the lives of others.

– Veronica Jones

Leading off with some basics, where are you from? And where are you at?

VJ: Hey, I’m Veronica, I’m 25 y.o. and was born & raised in Houston, TX (like Beyoncé!!!!) but I am currently living in New Orleans attending law school at Loyola New Orleans College of Law. After law school I am not sure where I will end up or what type of law I want to practice, but considering practicing criminal law, business law, international law, or entertainment law.

What does Reflection and Response mean to you?

VJ: Reflection & Response in a musical context to me means that you are taking a really personal, introspective look into your feelings, your life, your relationships, and also taking time to empathize with & understand the lives of others. After taking time to really understand your emotions and also see all kinds of conflicts & joys that occur in life, you are able to meaningfully convey your experience, or the experiences of others through music.

How does your music fit in with that definition?

VJ: Although I have not recorded any of my original pieces, I am a fan of jazz and have recorded a few jazz standards (Mood Indigo, Lullaby of Birdland & Fever). Also, while living in Spain I recorded a song called “Let the Music Play.”

“Mood Indigo” is a very melancholy song. It is about a person whose lover left them and is now dealing with loneliness. This song fits perfectly within the theme of Reflection & Response because when it comes to someone you love you have to first recognize your feelings with the situation and understand them and only after that should you decide how to react to them.

“Fever” is pretty self-explanatory, but just focuses on how a guy is giving her that special feeling.

“Lullaby of Birdland” uses a metaphor about birds singing to describe how she feels about the one she loves. Sometimes being direct about a situation is not the best way to explain how you feel.

“Let the Music Play” is all about losing your inhibitions and just experiencing the music and having a good time.

What else have you been working on recently? What are you looking to work on next?

VJ: Sadly, recently, I have not been working on anything. Since I am in my first year of law school, I find myself too busy to be involved in recording/gigging. But I certainly do sing around my house in my spare time!! Looking forward; I plan on staying in New Orleans for the summer & hopefully finding opportunities to gig/record while here.

Who or what inspires you?

VJ: My family inspires me so much, in particular my mother. She is one of the most generous people I have ever met, and has been supportive of my musical talents since I was a child.

Also I feel that my life experiences and those of others inspire me to think about situations more in depth and convey them in a way that really expresses the true meaning of a song.

Musicians that influence and inspire me are Beyoncé, Lauryn Hill, Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Winehouse, Bob Marley, The Weeknd, Adele, Brandy, and Lianna La Havas.

In particular Beyoncé inspires me because she has some of the BEST vocals known to man. Every album she puts out shows her progression and she has not been afraid to venture outside of her comfort zone.

Amy Winehouse inspires me because of the pure emotion she can put in a song with her voice. Its gritty, rough, soulful, and at the same time relatable.

Lianna la Havas inspires me because she has a very pure tone and uses tons of acoustic guitar, which I love. Her voice conveys tons of emotion as well.

Is there anything else you would like the Collective to know?

VJ: Just want to say that I have grown so much from my experiences and have come to realize that music can be very personal. When I was younger, I never understood that, but now that I am older, and singing about topics and situations that have affected me or my loved ones, I know that it takes courage to be able to be so transparent and share your stories with so many people you don’t know.

Shout out to…

VJ: Just wanna give a quick shout out to Peter for asking me to do this. I appreciate the involvement! Also, to my supportive/loving family and friends. And a shout out to New Orleans, for being the city which is my first stepping stone to becoming the successful lawyer that I want to be!!

Feature: Jessica Quick

Aright y’all it’s again that time! This week the Collective welcomes Jessica Quick to the Feature series dialogue! Jessica is coming from a place and space unable to be captured by one setting or time. She brings a perspective shaped through elbow-rubbing experiences traversing time zones across the globe, expressed through her creative writing. Anchored in mood and narrating through observation, Jessica takes the time to dive into her interpretation of Reflection and Response, providing a pint of insight into her path thus far. Take a look at her interview and her poem Daffodils below. Enjoy the ride; Bon Voyage.

Jessica Quick

A city’s mood, its mannerisms, its charisma (or lack thereof) reflect in its inhabitants and its architecture, and I like those things to feed into my reconstruction of a city through words.

-Jessica Quick

Leading off with some basics, where are you from? And where are you at?

JQ: I’m from Simi Valley, California, a synclinal suburb squatting outside of Los Angeles. Its geography and demography made it perfect for routine brush fires and a large population of conservative right-ists when I was growing up. It’s an awkward little city, and I’ve come to appreciate its quirks. In doses.

 In the past few years, I’ve lived in Harlem, Seoul, San Francisco, Madrid, and I’ve just relocated to Brooklyn a week ago. I’m looking forward to sticking around and getting back in touch with some old literary haunts, as well as my writing projects. I’m juggling a few ideas, and I think New York is the perfect place to explore them.

What does Reflection and Response mean to you?

JQ: Reflection! A necessary trait of response that’s learned with time, I suppose. I’ve traveled a bit, and it always takes me a long time to arrive at a place where I feel I can appropriately reflect on a city. What I like to do is feel out (and up?) places through my writing. I love infusing their bodies into my poetry. A city’s mood, its mannerisms, its charisma (or lack thereof) reflect in its inhabitants and its architecture, and I like those things to feed into my reconstruction of a city through words. Like getting to know someone new, attaining depth of a place just takes a little time. I wrote about New York when I was in Seoul, about Seoul often when I was in Madrid. And I still haven’t touched my hometown.

How does your writing fit in with that definition?

JQ: Although I like using my travel experience in my writing, I try to avoid relying too heavily on personal perspective. For example, I like creating stories that are not necessarily my own, but in a setting with which I’m familiar. Or I’ll use a mood that I may have felt in a certain city, but explore new lyrical narratives in a poem. I strive towards creation and embellishment over accuracy in retelling my response to a place. Maybe that makes me a liar. But I like telling stories. I think it’s boring and a bit vain if they’re all mine.

What else have you been working on recently? What are you looking to work on next?

JQ: I’m working on my first poetry collection, The Liminal Parade. It’s about spaces between here and there. I like writing about travel limbos, like subways, elevators, long plane rides. I’m also paying attention to certain psychological in-betweenness that mirror in those subways, elevators, and long plane rides – traveling for long periods of time without destination, waiting for someone to arrive, and indecisiveness are things I’m teasing out in my poetry. I like writing about hybrid existences because it hits close to home, both with my travel and with my mixed ethnicity. I’ve dwelled in the in-between and it’s an awkward, beautiful place.

I have a few other projects in mind for the future and the now. I’ve been talking to a few artists about comic book ideas and collaborations on creating some illustrated poetry, which I’m very excited about. I’m a huge comic fan, and the prospect of writing one makes my nerd heart skip a beat.

Who or what inspires you?

JQ: On the topic of comics, Daniel Clowes and Jason Lutes are my favorites for their dark humor and stark aesthetics. The Hernandez Bros. and Chris Ware are also stunning, although Ware makes me want the world to be a better person.

For poets, my current obsession is Frank O’Hara because I spent so much time writing about him for my MA thesis, which compared O’Hara and Lorca’s poetry in New York. I appreciate his unabashed exhilaration with life in his poetry, and how much his personality shows. And if O’Hara were still alive, I’m pretty sure he would be the coolest person in the world.

Of course, big cities inspire me as well as the people I meet. I am indebted to the city dwellers – from the rush hour flautist in Tokyo to my life-long companions. They accompany my memories of the cities I have grazed in my wanderings.

Is there anything else you would like the Collective to know?

JQ: We are poised in an interesting moment in history. From the state of the world economy, to the persistent race for technological advancements and subsequent dependency, we are witnessing rapid change in the world around us. We are responsible for how we choose to respond to these changes. To artists, I encourage you to create something beautiful in reflection of the environment around you.

 Shout out to…

JQ: Big love to all the creators and rabble-rousers. You make the world go round. And a big shout to a very talented jazz musician, my inspiration, and my husband-to-be, Daniel Stark.

Daffodils by Jessica Quick:

Daffodils

The first poem I ever wrote

was written by Wordsworth,

a posture of lines followed by

a school teacher’s request:

“Please see me after class.”

 

I never showed and

swallowed my first D –

literary theft on record

as enraged or defensive.

 

Years later, I found myself

writing poem after poem about daffodils.

Bought them any chance I could get.

I filled large suitcases with piles

of laughing heads and moved

to distant corners of the world.

 

Every town I visited,

I left solitary specimens

behind nondescript buildings

and cheap hotel rooms.

I remember one figure

splayed out like a brown

carcass of envy squatting

on the menu of a fish restaurant

in old Beijing.

 

After the last, I moved to an island at the edge of a map,

where (they said) daffodils could never grow.

I spent my days planting gardens near tough rocks.

At night, I counted holes in obscure constellations

where great, big, burning stars used to be.

Feature: Mark Mann

Today the Collective is as proud as we are humbled in the presentation of the following feature. Looking back, we’ve had a greatly diverse range of Arts and Artists bring us to this point. Now, the texture of the fabric from which the LIFESTYLE is built gets only richer with the incorporation of Mark Mann‘s Reflection and Response artist feature.

Coming out of BK, hailing from Oklahoma City and Santa Fe; here is a Man as Eclectic Americana as the craft of his production. Check the interview and original artwork below!

Mark Mann

Reflection is self-awareness. We are continually considering our thoughts, experiences and the people that are significant in our lives. The process of reflection is vital to my understanding of who I am and is a guide to looking forward—staking out the future. My artistic interests are a response to these collective ideas…

-Mark Mann

Leading off with some basics, where are you from? And where are you at?

MM: I was born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. During my college years, I found a second home in Santa Fe, New Mexico and was later drawn to the energy and diversity of New York City. I currently live and work in Brooklyn, although I sometimes feel like I still reside in all three– if that makes sense.

What does Reflection and Response mean to you?

MM: To me reflection is self-awareness. We are continually considering our thoughts, experiences and the people that are significant in our lives. The process of reflection is vital to my understanding of who I am and is a guide to looking forward—staking out the future. My artistic interests are a response to these collective ideas and as a result, my work has focused primarily on family relationships and the American experience.

How do Median Family and Breakfast Special fit in with that definition?

Median Family

Title: Median Family
Artist: Mark Mann
Year: 2000

MM: In the most basic of terms, my artwork finds its origins in the sampling of Americana postcards from the mid 20th century. One image entitled Median Family comes to mind. It depicts a family of four caught between two points— where they are going and where they have been. There is an underlying insecurity in their position and posture, but at the same time they are bound together in a protective group. The curve of the road and lack of information adds an amount of tension I am drawn to in most of my works and it seems to be the perfect mixture of my suburban and city experiences.

Breakfast Special, The Mother Road

Title: Breakfast Special, The Mother Road
Artist: Mark Mann
Year: 2012

Another example is Breakfast Special, The Mother Road. An image created from the fading of newsprint that focuses on the idea of seeking comfort and diversion in one’s life. Highlighting the freedom and clarity gained from travel is the central element, but there is the presence of branding and commercialism that pervades this experience–even in the wide-open spaces of the American west. This contradiction is interesting to me.

What else have you been working on recently? What are you looking to work on next?

Wish I Could Stay Longer

Title: Wish I Could Stay Longer
Artist: Mark Mann
Year: 2012

MM: Lately, my work involves experimenting with a variety of materials and alternatives to drawing. I’ve made it a priority to not get comfortable with past processes and continually take up new techniques. From invisible ink to white wine, I am searching for materials that conceptually reinforce the subjects they render.  In addition, I’m currently setting up a new studio space, so I look forward to working in a larger scale and “hands on” way that will be very different from my earlier computer-based imagery.

Who or what inspires you?

MM: Over the past year I’ve had the opportunity to meet up with some other Brooklyn-based artists who are doing compelling work. I’m always inspired by their creative vision and there’s a camaraderie there I haven’t had since art school. I look for any opportunity to collaborate with them on a future curated show or event.

Is there anything else you would like the Collective to know?

MM: The Amsterdam-based magazine, Eyemazing, will include my recent artist feature in their “Best of Eyemazing Book” due out this year. The article and other works may be viewed at http://www.markmannmade.com

Shout out to…?

MM: The entire family. All the in-laws and out-laws. They have always been there for me and I’m thankful.

Feature: Leopoldo Pérez Obregón

This week the LIFESTYLE brings the Feature series back with a global conversation based around Reflection and Response. Leopoldo Pérez Obregón’s craft is unique, innovative, yet informed by the various cultures of his home region of Corrientes, Argentina. His band Acorriente represents this dedicated craft and has shared the stage with the biggest names in Argentine folk music at the National Chamamé Festival in Corrientes. Check the interview below for more about Leo’s current and upcoming projects with content after the conversation. He is a craftsperson in motion.

Para empezar con algunos puntos básicas, de dónde vienes? Dónde estás?
Leading off with some basics, where are you from? And where are you at?
LPO: Yo nací en Corrientes, norte de Argentina, una de las provincias más pobres del país. Ahora vivo en Buenos Aires, aunque no estoy seguro de eso. No importa que pase el 90% de mi tiempo en esta ciudad, siento que sigo viviendo en Corrientes y acá sólo estudio o trabajo.

LPO: I was born in Corrientes in northern Argentina, one of the most impoverished states of the country. I currently reside in Buenos Aires, although I’m not sure where I live. Although I spend 90% of my time here in this city, I feel that I’m still living in Corrientes because I only study and work here.

Que quiere decir Reflection and Response para ti?
What does Reflection and Response mean to you?

LPO: No creo en las ideas que sostienen que el arte es esa cosa mística, romanticona y siempre bella que surge de expresar los íntimos sentimientos. Esa búsqueda por la espontaneidad irreflexiva y holgazana es una de las cosas que no me gusta encontrar entre los artistas.  Por eso es que la idea de Reflection and Response me dice mucho, porque creo que del autismo en el arte no puede salir nada bueno.

Muchos artistas viven enamorados de su propia obra, y suponen que siempre sus creaciones son “innovadoras” porque asumen que el campo cultural en el que operan es una tábula rasa que empieza a escribirse desde el momento en el que ellos compusieron su primer canción o terminaron su primer lienzo. Cualquier intento de creación que presuma un campo cultural vacío, y que su aparición es acontextual, está destinado a ser un fracaso, a la irrelevancia, aunque pueda conseguir al principio alguno que otro aplauso fácil.

De esta manera entiendo que es fundamental que la comunidad de artistas no sea una comunidad de ciegos y sordos que pretendan crear siempre ex nihilo. Necesitamos saber que se hizo antes, y qué están haciendo los demás, para que nuestras propias creaciones tengan relevancia y puedan dialogar con los aportes anteriores que otros seres humanos fueron haciendo y hacen alrededor del tiempo. Si cada uno está preocupado por producir mucho y reflexionar poco, entonces hay mucha respuesta, pero poca interacción entre todos nosotros, y eso tampoco sirve.

“El que se larga a los gritos no escucha su propio canto”, dice una canción de Atahualpa Yupanqui, uno de los más grandes folkloristas que tuvo la Argentina. Seguramente a él le hubiera gustado mucho la idea de Reflection and Response.

LPO: I don’t believe in ideas that decree that art is some mystical thing, romantic and always beautiful and comes from expressing intimate feelings. I’m not attracted to the drive for spontaneity and idleness in artists. Indeed, Reflection and Response is meaningful for me because I don’t believe much can come out of from artistic isolation. Too many artists live enamored of their own work and believe that their work is somehow “innovative,” because they think the cultural field in which they operate is a blank slate that began when they started to compose their first song or finish their first canvas. Any intent to create based on the idea of a completely new or vacant cultural field with no context is destined for failure and irrelevance, though it may achieve some cheap applause.

Based on these ideas I find it fundamental that the artistic community not be blind and deaf and pretend to create out of nothing. We must know what was done before, what others are doing and creating in order for our creations to be relevant and can dialogue with previous ideas that human beings have been working on for all time.  If everyone is focused on creating great quantities of work with little reflection, there remain many answers with limited interaction between the artistic community-something that doesn’t matter.

“One who strays too far from cries does not hear his or her own song,” sings Atahualpa Yupanqui, one of the most important folk artists in Argentina. He would have surely agreed with the idea of Reflection and Response.

Que más estás haciendo actualmente? Que proyectos estás pensando trabajar próximamente? Como se encuentran esos proyectos con tu idea de Reflection and Response?
What else have you been working on recently? What are you looking to work on next? How do these projects fit in with your ideas on Reflection and Response?

LPO: Acorriente es una banda que hasta ahora logró insertarse bien en el campo cultural local. Creo que eso responde no sólo al talento individual de cada uno de los músicos que componen la banda, sino a una lectura buena del contexto artístico actual y a una intencionalidad de intervención sobre el campo cultural muy premeditada, y creo que exitosa en cuanto a sus cualidades estéticas también.

La banda puede disfrutarse sin conocer cómo ni qué es la música de Corrientes -que vendría a ser el chamamé-, pero si conocés el contexto probablemente puedas disfrutar de otras cosas que hacen que la banda tenga algo muy particular para decir.

Te mentiría si no te dijera que está entre mis planes recibirme de abogado. De algún lado tengo que sacar dinero para hacer música! Tengo un proyecto para hacer un registro audiovisual de dos músicos que a pesar de su talento sólo quedaron como grandes músicos de pequeños pueblos. Quiero reivindicar la figura y el talento de esos personajes ocultos por la pobreza y la marginalidad. Como proyecto artístico este año si puedo terminar eso estaría más que contento, además de hacer alguno que otro show con Acorriente.

LPO: Acorriente is a band that has been able until now to get involved in the local cultural scene. I believe that this comes from not only the individual talent of each member of the group, but also an astute understanding of current artistic context and a deliberate intention to get involved in this scene, and also positive aesthetic qualities. Although one can enjoy the band without an understanding of music from Corrientes, known as chamamé with an understanding of our cultural context one can enjoy particularities in our music that shows the band has something to say.

I would be lying if I did not say that graduating with a law degree wasn’t in my future plans. Somehow I have to make money to be able to create music! I’ve been thinking of doing an audiovisual collection of two musicians who are talented yet are only considered great artists in small towns. I would like to vindicate the talent of these people who have been marginalized because of poverty. I would be more than happy if I’m able to finish this project and do another show with Acorriente.

Quien o que te inspira?
Who or what inspires you?
LPO: Las mujeres Peter! Me inspiran las mujeres! Igual que vos, empecé a hacer música para tener muchas chicas. No, mentira, fue una mezcla de cosas. En realidad creo que hay que trabajar mucho y tratar de buscar menos el momento mágico de la inspiración, yo no me inspiro, pienso mucho en mis composiciones. Cuando atravieso momentos emocionales fuertes no me salen mis mejores cosas porque me cuesta pensar.

LPO: Women, Peter! Women inspire me. Just like you, I began to play music in order to meet women. Joking- it was a mix of things. In reality I believe it requires a lot of work and the attempt to find that magical moment of inspiration. I don’t get inspired, instead I labor over my compositions.  My best work doesn’t come out when I dare to work from strong emotions because it becomes difficult to think.

Hay algo más que quieres que sepa el Collectivo?

Is there anything else you would like the Collective to know?

LPO: Sí. Quiero que sepan que tengo un trauma con que las cosas me van a explotar en la cara. Cada vez que voy a mear, por ejemplo, cuando me voy a secar las manos con la maquinita esa que sopla viento me agarra un miedo! Ni hablar del dispenser de agua caliente para el mate o del motor del auto.

Ah, y soy peronista. Muy importante.

LPO: I would like people to know that I am traumatized by that which blows up in my face. Whenever I go pee, for example, when I put my hands under the dryer I get a fright! Not to mention hot water from the thermos for mate or car motors.

Ah, I also am a Peronist. Very important.

Saludos a…?
Shout out to…?

LPO: Un gran saludo a mi amigo personal Roger Waters que viene a tocar a la Argentina dentro de poco, y al compañero Peter Muller, para que nunca se olvide de los pibes del barrio.

LPO: A shout out to my good friend Roger Waters who is shortly coming to Argentina to perform, and to my homie Peter Muller, so that he never forgets the neighborhood kids.

The City’s Windows

Madrid March 5th.

In both of these pics I focused on the reflective/perspective power of windows. The laborer in the first pic contrasts with the “CERRADO,” nature of the shop. In the pic below, I cut out some words of a sign and just left “POR FAVOR,” with some bars.
