4 thoughts on “Clothes on Rack

  1. Oh no – that’s good it was ‘cluttered’ – you should see this room.
    Nice one, looks like a still from a 1930 German film.
    One thing though, not to be pedantic – you ‘took’ a few frames. Not ‘made’ (to my mind that word is the most ghastly form of art-speak . . I made some ‘work’ . . ah, ghastly) – visual literacy is fun.
    I think this D H Lawrence poem does the stuff on many different levels:

    A Sane Revolution

    If you make a revolution, make it for fun,
    don’t make it in ghastly seriousness,
    don’t do it in deadly earnest,
    do it for fun.

    Don’t do it because you hate people,
    do it just to spit in their eye.

    Don’t do it for the money,
    do it and be damned to the money.

    Don’t do it for equality,
    do it because we’ve got too much equality
    and it would be fun to upset the apple-cart
    and see which way the apples would go a-rolling.

    Don’t do it for the working classes.
    Do it so that we can all of us be little aristocracies on our own
    and kick our heels like jolly escaped asses.

    Don’t do it, anyhow, for international Labour.
    Labour is the one thing a man has had too much of.
    Let’s abolish labour, let’s have done with labouring!
    Work can be fun, and men can enjoy it; then it’s not labour.
    Let’s have it so! Let’s make a revolution for fun!


    1. The poem looks familiar. Did you have it on your website at some point? It’s a good one anyway.
      I got the ‘make photographs’ thing from Sam Abell, one of my all time favourite photographers. I ‘make’ a photograph when I think about the scene before pressing the shutter release button. I took a lot of photographs in Seoul a few days ago and wasted a lot of film. 😦
