Can you fall in love with an inanimate object? Can you be intimate when the relationship is a one-way street? Can a hyper-realistic doll fill the loneliness that aches inside? This is something South Korean photographer June Korea explores in his photographic essay Still Lives: Eva. June Korea: “Many people are interested in the project and my life because it has to do with such an uncanny subject matter they have rarely seen. However, Eva and I […]

humanity / love / quotation / thoughts

Looking to make some sense of it on this sad day I found this quote and it gave me hope: I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

While waiting for a train on a busy platform poet and filmmaker Max Stossel was inspired to create a moving video poem about how we yearn for human connections and how beautiful things may happen to us, if we just keep our hearts and eyes open. *Credits for the video: Writer: Max Stossel, director: Matthew Freidell, choreography: Celia Rowlson-Hall, cinematographer: Sean Ferry, actors/dancers: Rachel Berman & Ryan Weiss ᔥslipperyedge.com

I Wanna Be Like You

The past couple of days I’ve been seriously enjoying the swinging magic of King Louie. In search of something real to watch with my two year old I stumbled across this classic clip from the film Jungle Book and was instantly transported back to days when Disney really did create magic. My daughter now asks to see the “ou-ou-monkey-music” every morning and I simply cannot stop grinning when Baloo the Bear gets infected with the […]

They say everyone who looks into their family history will find a secret sooner or later. So when Zooey started looking through the old family albums in the chest she found in her grandmother’s attic she intuitively felt she would find something. Some clue that an ancestor had carefully hidden away decades ago, hoping that skeleton would be taken to the grave with its last witness, forever silenced as if it had never happened. Zooey […]

The bathroom is immaculate like a work of art, i dare not touch anything. The wall paper has a mother of pearl sheen, there are beautiful Japanese prints and a faint smell of Jasmine fills the space. It seems the towels are stacked with the use of a ruler and the toilet bowl itself looks like a delicate piece of china. I had only gone in here because i needed to escape the crowd downstairs. […]

Moms & Malls

We used to go to the mall often when I was young, me and my friends piled in the back of our big station wagon. My mom used to drive us there on school day afternoons. White kneesocks, plaid school uniforms, all talking simultaneously in our high voices. I never paid much attention to her; window down, her elbow resting on the door, cigaret dangling from the corner of her mouth. When I try to picture […]
