I Choose To Collect Memories Instead Of Things

Lost In Translation, Voodoo And Youth

First time visited Japan when I was 7. Things have changed since then, actually strike that,

I did…

or did I?…

From salt to blood,
Within a cage, without air, within a silent agony.
Raging in lies and smiles of the past,
I served the purpose, her purpose.

It is her story, I was only a tool.
The pain inside without a cause.
Her cause, her pain, inside my nameless shadow.
I will be lost within the wind of sorrow.

My aching bones and shattered dreams,
Without a place and name.
Just a footprint of a soul without flesh, without a home.
Nothing to lose, nothing to gain, no one to follow.

Burning through the pages of a story, her story.
Destroying without regret,
To love and to hate,
To walk the plank into oblivion – that’s my fate.

My ugly beauty and beautiful ugliness,
My battered soul, my dusty shoes,
My tears and blood of my inner child.
My journey on this endless road.

We will dance barefoot on shattered glass, on shattered dreams.
We will be remembered and then forgotten.
We will kiss the tears of our unborn child.
We will rise like Phoenix, we will break free!

I will climb the highest mountain,
I will not look down,
I will not turn the other cheek,
I will not bow down!

One more step,
One last breath,
One last laugh…

I am free at last!

“I will come back and see you soon!” I said while hugging Zaza before leaving for Canada. “You promise?!” Asked Zaza with a smile.

“Of course I will!”

Those were the last words I have ever said to this extraordinary woman…

Respect For Art

New York is a beautiful place full of incredible artists. And I was fortunate to have worked with many beautiful souls over the years.

Unfortunately, there are also those, who give photographers a really bad name.

I Am Free



“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” ~ George Orwell


I will always be against wars… all wars! I am pro PEACE & LOVE for our beautiful universe and for all souls. I am anti any kind of genocide. I will always stand with those, who are being attacked. If the people in power of our world, didn’t want wars and murder, there would be none. If you want to know where the power is, ask who you can not criticize. Read the rest of this entry »
