Almost new month, which means the newest issue of Sensitif Magazine is online to download for free. This issue contains a shoot called British Dream by Simon Barnes. And to be honest the images are not all that great, so I selected a few of my favourites.
Last time I was ill I discovered the fabulous Makka Pakka. This week I've been ill again (bugger) and I watched a lot of tv. And lucky me, one of our digital channels Holland Doc broadcasted all the work of writer/televisionmaker Jelle Brandt Corstius. A beautiful journey through Russia. From Moscow all the way to the most deserted parts of that very large country I know so little about.
He interviews a lot of people about the most crazy things. About living in Moscow when you don't look russian. About the corrupt government. About the gulags in Siberia. About rocket-launches and parts of the rocket falling down on villages. Every minute of these documentaries is interesting and I really enjoy being ill and watch them! Jelle Brandt Corstius is my hero of the month!
*) sneeuw is warm = snow is warm. In Siberia, with those freezing temperatures people know it's warm when it's snowing. Temperatures rizing from -25C to only -10C.

Photographer Jan Banning did these beautiful portraits on bureaucrats worldwide. And indeed, the only thing these people have in common is the bureau in front of them. And to think one day far far in the past I was one of them.... and now I'm not... that makes me happy!
