Last night in Ibiza
Last night in Ibiza for another year, I would like to make it back again with my friend Niels (Randy) if the Tea Party allow foreign travel ? And I don’t mean Texas. Those boys are giving Barry a run for his money….
Tomorrow is my last full day in Ibiza, I need to work but I need a fucking break from my life for a while. When I was younger I took pills, now the odd beer is not a replacement, I have music but I need more.. help me
Still in Ibiza, just. The rain is making me wish I could get home earlier and get on with work. I have planned out a new group of large paintings that I want to get started on. Beyond childcare I intend to spend most of my time working on these paintings. Also there is photo organizing to do, I recently agreed to allow ‘Living Room’ to be reprinted for the 60th anniversary of Aperture, I never really wanted this to happen but the kids in the book really wanted it so I agreed. Anyway I found out today that the original film has been destroyed so the book is gone. So rather than just remake the original we will make an expanded version, so I need to get to work on that on my return to the U.K as the negs are stored there. If all goes well I would return to NYC with the prints for design and repro in September, so busy times ahead.
As for the design I would want to stick to Tibor Kalman’s original so that would be easy. There are 59 pictures in the original but I think I have around 500 that are good and unused so it’s going to be tough. Images that I didn’t like 20 years ago I really like now, time gives a different perspective on the work. What is sure is I will include the original 59 images.
Thunder and lightening here in Spain right now, I believe the football league starts today so it is kind of fitting, I don’t even know who Brighton have for their first game in the 2nd Divison or whatever it is called now a days. I must say I have enjoyed a summer without footy after last summer being a world cup year, I have enjoyed the peace. Back it’s back on now, so it’s Woking in the Conference South, The Albion in the Championship and Arsenal in big boy competitions as ever.
