a book

Yesterday we visited near by city. We do not visit it very often, but every time we do I have strong cultural feel in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. I visited second hand book store. I always look to art and photo books. Very rarely I buy anything. Reason? I guess my taste is not what most’s people taste is. Yesterday the section with second hand book was huge. I was sitting there on the floor for almost two hours. At the end I bought Black Sun: The Eyes of Four. Only home I realize that the book is work of four Japanese photographers. The primary reason why I bought it are images from Eikoh Hosoe.

    Interesting photo. At the first glance it looks like a date of two beloved. After a careful sight I had a feeling that this is not what it looks like. But the picture brings dizziness, unreality and simultaneously power of life.
    I honestly don’t like it. Although I accept it’s quality.
    What do you, Richard, like in it?

    Very interesting that you noticed that disturbing element in the image. On one side it really feels, especially in the quick look, like romantic image.
    When one look longer enough it feels really strange, something is not right, something is different that it felt in first look. Title of this image is Kamaitachi. If I understood it right it means certain type of attacking demon.
    Look carefully there is certainly attack.

    And what I like on it? Exactly that element of unknown, uncertain. Something which ask me to think.
