FridaysForFuture, Manhattan | New York

"For way too long, the politicians and the people in power have gotten away with not doing anything to fight the climate crisis, but we will make sure that they will not get away with it any longer. We are striking because we have done our homework and they have not." - Greta Thunberg
There's nothing to be added.

Robert Frank passed away

7 Bleecker Street | New York

Robert Frank, one of the most influential documentary photographers of our time, whose visually raw and personally expressive style was pivotal in changing the course of documentary photography, has passed away yesterday, Monday 9th 2019 in Inverness, Nova Scotia. He was 94 years old.

"There are too many images, too many cameras now. We’re all being watched. It gets sillier and sillier. As if all action is meaningful. Nothing is really all that special. It’s just life. If all moments are recorded, then nothing is beautiful and maybe photography isn’t an art... " Robert Frank

Pilot fish around a great shark

Duane Michals protests against Trump's policy of separating children from their parents on the Mexican border in front of the Trump Tower on 5th Avenue in Manhattan, New York.
The iconic artist, know for his photography, was once skeptical about the effectiveness of art as a political protest, at least that's what he told Bomb Magazine in 1987: Art’s “political aspirations are impotent, they can never be seen. If they are, it will only be by a limited audience. (…) Power is not with the artist. Artists are little pilot fish swimming around a great shark. We have to understand the nature of power. Power is in the hands of big money and oil companies.”
Maybe that's why he's putting himself in front of the tower today.
The last time I met Duane was in 1989 in his own exhibition in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg/Germany.

Beach, East Hampton | Long Island

Looking forward to the next weekend in East Hampton. Here a screenshot of the beach from Google street view...
I think we need to be really careful, because of all the corners and edges.
Apropos, that's not us in the photo!
