J. S. Bach, Partita No. 2: Rondeaux and Capriccio – Martha Argerich, live in Tokyo 2000
Maria-Louise Bodirsky, arts. “On my daily walk through the vineyards, I was fascinated again and again by the split poles made out of the wood of the Acacia. They had been driven into the earth at the beginning and end of each row of vine to hold the wires and were slowly being weathered by sun, wind, and frost. (…) But then, in the hot summer of 2003, I was swimming in the bathing lake of Burkheim. A weathered piece of wood drifted towards me. I played with it. (…) I looked at it more closely and then it spoke to me: I am Daphne. Give me a face! Alright, I said, Iâ,d like to do nothing more. I took it with me on my bike, rode directly to my workshop and modelized a head â,” very introverted, mysterious, restrained, beautiful â,” a head with a soul. I very much enjoyed it! “
Eric Tourneret, the bee photographer. Magnificent view on the life of bees and their keepers. Beautiful photo’s with clear explanations.
“Stampede on the flight board. Observing intense bee activity from inside the beehive. Loaded with pollen, foragers return from their morning round. White or orange pollen, each bee concentrates on one flower species. A forager weigh 100 milligrams and can fly with a load of up to 70 milligrams.”
Stephen Alvarez, photography. Amazingly beautiful.
