dezvrajire.

G: e ca atunci cand iti ninge direct pe inima… stii?

G: ca atunci cand pe masa de operatie

G: doctorii iti deschid pieptul

G: si in secunda urmatoare

G: din tavan incepe dintr-o data sa …

G: … ninga

M: hardcore imagery

M: ninsoare pe cord deschis?

G: bingo :)

12 Baskets Magazine: they have nothing togheter, but even less apart.

Check out 12 Baskets Magazine. The digital magazine of Mobile Loaves and Fishes. The magazine launched in May the “I AM HERE” campaign which is designed to bring awareness to the homeless living in Austin, Texas. Danny will sit atop a billboard in Austin until enough money has been raised for him to purchase a mobile home for he and his wheel chair bound wife Maggie. Read their story HERE. Non-related: I love 12 Baskets Magazine’s website! Great!

iraq: when the war has dealt it’s cards. (II)

Five-year-old Maddie Lovell, right, clings to her father, U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Jacob Lovell, of 585th Military Police Company, during a welcome home ceremony, at Marysville High School, in Marysville, Ohio, Aug. 13, 2010.

Lovell and about 170 other Soldiers, of 585th Military Police Company returned home, from the unit’s first deployment, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, after training over 500 Iraqi Police officers, conducting anti-terrorism and force protection missions, and providing Provost Marshall law enforcement, in Iraq’s Anbar Province (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Sean Mathis/Released).

More incredible photos (incredible sad photos of an useless war) @ The U.S. Army’s Photostream.

PS: Lovell… what an appropriate last name. :)

smart media campaigns. (I)

Smart, creative, simple, surprising, original: the Go Beyond Borders Project was an initiative of Heimat Berlin and CNN International in conjunction with Berlin Tape Artist El Bocho for the 20th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. 40 km of Go Beyond Borders tape was produced to mark the original position of the Berlin Wall and 8 Street Art Installations told heroic stories of those who conquered the divide between East and West Berlin. Watch below the “making of”.

shocking Amnesty International advertising.

Pentru cine nu stie povestea, fotografia (sus in varianta folosita pentru campania Amnesty International, jos in varianta originala) ii apartine lui Edward Thomas Adams (1969) si infatiseaza o executie din Saigon. A fost facuta cu vreo 5 sau 10 secunde inainte ca militarul sa-i bage un glont in cap prizonierului. Fotografiile ca asta – oricat de socante, tragice sau triste ar fi – nu trebuie uitate; fotografiile ca asta au tras un semnal de alarma si au adus in ochii lumii ceea ce se intampla cu adevarat acolo unde nimeni nu voia sa vada ce se intampla. Prin urmare, oricat de socanta le-ar parea campania unora, eu prefer oricand o fotografie care sa nu ma lase sa uit si care sa ma scuture, in detrimentul unei imagini care nu spune nimic. Pana la urma, cand ai avea mai multa grija la volan? Dupa un spot in care un politist iti spune pe un ton apatic ca viteza face victime sau dupa ce vezi un copil care zboara printr-un parbriz? Un copil care ar putea fi al tau. O arma care ar fi putut sta – la fel de random – si la tampla ta.

sandrine’s secret city friends.

Strong Gale

Like Terry Border or Kumi Yamashita, illustrator Sandrine Estrade Boulet adds a dynamic and creative spin on daily life scenes and objects. Just like a superhero, she has a secret power:  she can see things most people can’t see. Making objects come alive through her magic imagination, she shows us our secret friends sneaking around Paris, her hometown. Coming along for the ride?

Lifelines: Lorena, Julian, Trico y La Porota.

Buna, suntem Julian, Lorena si micul Trico (cainele) si calatorim in jurul lumii cu La Porota (motocicleta). Calatoria noastra a inceput in Argentina, in 25.02.2002, si  pana acum am vizitat mai mult de 50 de tari. ”

Asta am vazut in urma cu 2 ani pe Eroilor: mesajul de mai sus asternut pe-o harta a lumii desfasurata pe asfalt, o motocicleta “accesorizata” cu doua stegulete (unul e al Argentinei si nu e schimbat niciodata, al doilea e mereu steagul tarii prin care calatoresc Lorena si Julian in acel moment) si un catel mereu curios si hyper-energic (evident, atunci cand nu sta cuibarit hoţeşte sub haina Lorenei). :)

Cum de multe ori ma trezesc intrand in vorba cu oameni pe care nu i-am vazut niciodata, perfect strangers, si de data asta s-a intamplat la fel (ce-i drept, fiind si innebunita de faptul ca nu aveam subiect pentru a doua zi :D). Ma bucur ca m-am oprit sa ii intreb care e povestea lor si nu am ales sa merg mai departe, cu gandul la patul cald in care urma sa ma arunc acasa. Daca nu m-as fi oprit, as fi ratat doi oameni incredibili, un catel curajos si o poveste frumoasa.

Anul asta Lorena, Julian, Trico si La Porota implinesc 10 ani de cand sunt pe drum. Si,  dupa spusele lor, calatoria va mai continua inca multi ani de-acum incolo. De ce mi-am adus aminte de ei tocmai acum? Pentru ca imi aduc aminte de ei de cate ori vreau sa plec. De cate ori imi fac in cap inventarul oamenilor cu adevarat frumosi pe care i-am cunoscut pana acum. Si de cate ori aud – ca astazi - “Lifelines”. Sper ca si-au adus aminte sa faca ce i-am rugat:  mai precis, sa-mi faca o poza cu fiordurile norvegiene iarna. :) Good luck, Lorena! Good luck, Julian! “Jurnalul” calatoriei lor, galerie foto si live updates aici.
