“This is the city and I am one of the citizens; whatever interests the rest interests me…
Politics, churches, newspapers, schools,
benevolent societies, improvements, bank tariffs,
steamships, factories, markets,
stocks and stores and real estate and personal estate.”

[WHITMAN]

Last night, my friend Michelle and I hosted our first supper club. It happened on Noble Street, in Parkdale, Toronto, Canada. It went real well – good food, good people, flowing booze.
I hope it happens again…

“And then I said… Do you plan to make revolution with cliches? And Jacinto answered that frankly there was no way he was planning to make revolution anymore, but that if some night he happened to be in the mood, then making it with cliches and the lyrics of sappy love songs wouldn’t be such a bad idea.”

Carol Jerrems. Photographer. Australian. 1949-1980.

Carol Jerrems took photos of the ‘sharpie’ youth subculture in Melbourne in the 1970s. Her photos mark the beginnings of a new-wave in Australian photography, a blurring of documentary-style realism and a more subjective-style of portraiture. Her style remind me of Gavin Watson‘s photos of British skinheads.
