As I showed you the pictures I took of Jules before, here’s the vice versa now. When we went through the photographs afterwards we both were struck with the idea that they would make perfect art for a folk-singer-songwriter-something record. Vinyl, at best, and probably something between Loreena McKennitt and Black 47 and a little bit of folk-inspired punk, overall rather 90s I guess. It would be a challenging project, after all.
for Jolly: chair without context again :)
I think I like the last three best, and the very last one would be the cover picture for the record if I made one. But – I dare say – all of the pictures turned out really good, and some of them even made it into Jules’ portfolio for his application for fashion design studies.
I really love and appreciate working with my best friend and am so looking forward to our next session!
Yesterday was the last day of my Breton intensive course. So, this month all five of my favourite words will be in this language, as a special. You could call it a tribute, if you wanted to.
- Frilien – handkerchief. You can practically hear the crochet lace with gentle scallop stitches made of fine cotton.
- Tuchantik – soon. The -tik at the end could be an onomatopoeic expression of the clock that’s always related to time-concerning words.
- Dilun – last or next Monday. The u is spoken like in French, in IPA it’d be an [ʏ].
- Sonerien – musicians. It’s a little bit like you can hear them sing as the word reminds me of sirens.
- Hanternoz – midnight. Can’t you see the dancers at the midnight dance, spinning around in their traditional clothes, stomping the beat with their sabots… there’s even a special dance for threshing with feet.
