auspices:

I was reading an excellent NY Times interview with Nick Cave yesterday and found the portrait incredible. The unnerving position, the swimming focus and the intensity in those eyes! To quote the article…

"You can look around when the Bad Seeds are playing and see precisely which version of Nick — the junkie, the outlaw, the lover — each person in the crowd wants to be"

…which is exactly what this portrait captures - an undefinable man, somehow projecting both intimacy and loneliness.

The picture was made by British artist Richard Learoyd using a camera obscura. Literally translated from Latin as “dark room” Learoyd has created a room-sized camera in which the photographic paper is exposed. The subject—often a person, sometimes a still life—is in the adjacent room, separated by a lens. Light falling on the subject is directly focused onto the photographic paper without an interposing film negative. The result is an entirely grainless image. These photographs, up to 80 inches wide, are among the largest contact prints ever made.

With no negative, editing is done as each picture is made: “I decide if something is good or bad, then I live with it.” He destroys the discarded images by slashing them, spray painting them and rolling them up wet. “You have to be brutal with yourself. It’s only you who can make those decisions and I make them instantaneously.” (Time LightBox)


Here’s the remix we did with Roots Manuva and Hiem. Check the lyric: “Everybody wanna know your name / Everybody wanna be your friend…”. I 100% agree Rodney.
