Robert Frank | Paris New Year, 1949

Posted: April 26th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Film, Photography, Poetry

…if one is sensitive, it has an effect on you. So maybe it’s better not to be sensitive as a photographer and just go on. Many photographers today have that but I never had that. I think it’s nice to be sensitive as a photographer and maybe it’s harder.

William Eggleston | Memphis (Tricycle)

Posted: April 25th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Film, Photography, Quotes

A picture is what it is and I’ve never noticed that it helps to talk about them, or answer specific questions about them, much less volunteer information in words. It wouldn’t make any sense to explain them. Kind of diminishes them. People always want to know when something was taken, where it was taken, and, God knows, why it was taken. It gets really ridiculous. I mean, they’re right there, whatever they are.

Egypt, Cairo | The Bakery

Posted: April 22nd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: dougKIM photography, Egypt, Film, Leica

I was lost in a neighborhood in the eastern part of Cairo. I had entered this warren of tiny dirt floored alleys and was wandering and unable to find my way out. I started to walk down an dead end when I saw this boy bringing out freshly baked bread.

This bakery was old and deep inside this cavernous building, the maw of the oven casting an unbelievable amount of heat into the room. It was February and though the hottest part of the oven was deeply recessed, the heat it threw out hit like a laser. I could not imagine working there during the height of summer.

These flat circles of dough would be slid into the oven and after a minute on each side, it would turn into this pillow of bread, soft and flaky. I ate one hot, straight from the oven, the men and boys standing around and watching my reaction.

Bread is a vital part of the daily life and routine of Egyptians that when the price of bread soared in 2008 as the economy was tanking, people rioted. Then President Mubarak ordered the military to open their bakeries to the public to appease the masses. There have been many bread riots in recent history but none as important and as far reaching as the Bread Riot of 1977.

Jean Gaumy | José Saramago

Posted: April 21st, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Film, Quotes

The painter paints, the musician makes music, the novelist writes novels. But I believe that we all have some influence, not because of the fact that one is an artist, but because we are citizens. As citizens, we all have an obligation to intervene and become involved, it’s the citizen who changes things. I can’t imagine myself outside any kind of social or political involvement. Yes, I’m a writer, but I live in this world and my writing doesn’t exist on a separate level. And if people know who I am and read my books, well, good; that way, if I have something more to say, then everyone benefits.

-José Saramago

Taking pictures is like fishing or writing. It’s getting out of the unknown that which resists and refuses to come to light.

Egypt, Alexandria | Mostashfa Hessian

Posted: April 20th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: dougKIM photography, Egypt, Film, Leica

Stumbled upon a demonstration at the Mostashfa Hessian Hospital in Alexandria. These protesters were doctors and nurses at the hospital demanding the removal of the hospital administrator. Again, they asked if I was a photojournalist and when I said I wasn’t, they let me shoot.

You can see clearly that the women wear lots of heavy eye liner. Egypt is where black eye kohl was invented. It is so blazingly bright there in the desert that the eye liner functions much like the greasepaint under the eyes of football players.
