Henri Cartier-Bresson
"As far as I am concerned, taking photographs is a means of understanding which cannot be separated from other means of visual expression. It is a way of shouting, of freeing oneself, not of proving or asserting one's own originality. It is a way of life."

Jeanloup Sieff - Retrospective
Another great master of black and white photography.

The Distorted Barbie had it coming.
So when lawyers from Mattell™ put the heavies onto Mark Napier's ISP she became The Dï$tØrtëD Børbie to avoid costly legal battles. While the net began to buzz with the news mirror sites of The Uncencensored Distorted Barbie sprung up all over the place. It's an ongoing battle of David and Goliath and you can get the details at The Daily Barbie™

It's that Mark Napier again showing that his talent don't need no Pink Plastic Thing™ to lean on!

The Amsterdam-based all girl band Bitchcock not only play kick-ass music ("Is it pop with a sloppy edge, elaborate grunge-rock with a psychedelic touch, or should we call it emotionally charged rock & roll with an element of noise?") they also have downloadable samples for you to hear on your computer.

Progressive Rock
the A to Z of good music.

The First Church of Chumbawamba
Their manager says they are "One of the great cult acts of the UK if not the world" but then he would wouldn't he? Philm got to see them play in Spain and was most impressed. It's a pity the festival security apes wouldn't let him in with his camera but it was a memorable show anyway.
"If you remember us for just one thing we'd like you to remember we are an anti-fascist band!", they said.
