Okei, let’s forget about the crap for a while. Let’s talk about something I like, really like, photography. Btw, I’m just amateur here, so u won’t find some review or professional tips hereJ.  Okei, I like the police, kinda old school I guess, but I like them ever since I heard “every little things she does is magic” when I was in 5th grade. So, maybe its lil bit too late, but I found out that their guitarist (Andy Summers) did a photo shoots during their journey. Very interesting, most of the photos were a spontaneous photography and what makes it a lot more interesting its black and white photosJ.  Review mention that this book, somewhere between photojournalism and an illustrated diary, follows The Police around the globe between 1980 and 1983. From the American West to Australia to Japan, Summers recorded not only the band members rehearsing and partying the proverbial sex, drugs, and rock and roll he also photographed fans, landscapes, still lifes, and passersby in a reportage style reminiscent of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank. Anyway..just skip the review and check this marvelous photographs 


Actually there’s a lot more, but too bad I can’t find it on the net L ..Now I’m wondering how I can get this book.

Currently listening to Roxanne
