A Curious Question To / Sofiane Boualia

Why is it important for you to photograph this piece of ground?

This photo is called “Desert” it’s from my serie Hors Saison a project on my hometown, a small city in the middle of France called Clamecy. This shot was taken on my childhood playground, it’s the old parking of the public pool. I was living in the kind of residential neighborhood where every kids hang together, we used to spend a lot of time over there, biking, skating, dreaming, climbing trees to watch girls by the pool.
I’ve once broke the arm of a friend, I guess we were trying to create a new game it was terrible. It’s just a parking lot, but there were a real energy a true meeting place, it was perfect to work on our creativity. I’ve shot this piece of ground because first of all as a 8 years old kid that dick shape was funny, and today it symbolises a form of nostalgia, the rift got bigger there’s no kids playing there anymore. It represents the desertification of my hometown.

Interview / Kim – Blues de Geek Manifesto

Interview with the surprising french artist, multi-instrumentalist and singer, Kim
– at the occasion of the release of his last album “Blues de Geek Manifesto“. [ITW in French and English]

We hear many different influences in your album, as well as humor. How would you define your music?

Thank you for the compliment. I think “geek blues” could suit me. It is multilingual and old-fashioned. I like old-fashioned. It’s like ugly – the pretty way. It may be what you perceive as humorous. Old-fashioned. I like when it sucks a bit.

On sent beaucoup d’influences différentes dans ton album, on sent de l’humour aussi. Comment tu définirais ta musique ?

Merci du compliment. Je crois que le terme « blues de geek » pourrait m’aller. Il est polyglotte et désuet. J’aime beaucoup le désuet. C’est comme du moche, mais en joli. C’est peut être ca que tu entends comme humoristique. Le désuet. J’aime bien quand ca craint un peu.

A Curious Question To / Ian Kline

What do you think about when you look at this photo you took?

The feeling of stumbling upon something that has always been there waiting to be looked at under a new light in a new time.
I think about being younger and spending weekends at my dads house. Wandering around this house that I would only be at every other weekend. Finding things in the basement that my Dad would keep for some reason even though they probably didn’t have any practical use anymore. It’s not like a hoarding situation but more of a collection of things in hope that by having them they would be needed for some project later on; which kind of relates back to my photographic practice of making, collecting, and sitting on images. The photograph also reminds me of a more recent event of recovering from a knee surgery, crutching around my dads house, finding this computer set up placed by itself in the musty basement, and trying to set up lights and a 4×5 before the painkillers wore off and my knee started to hurt again. It’s kind of funny; I think I get a lot of inspiration from my dad’s house.
