Baxter: Beware of the Dog that Thinks

This is a great cult film by Jérôme Boivin. The narration of the film consists of the dog Baxter's thoughts. He manipulates everyone he comes in contact with. Try to find the DVD. I only saw it when it was released in France in 1989. I only found this one excerpt below. [Sorry, they have removed the video clip. Too bad, it is a delight and gives you a hint of how good the movie is. UPDATE: I have added at bottom a short trailer for the… Continue

What about the Mice?

As you know from the story here, I imagined that my days would be filled with endless rodent carnage when I finally decided to put out traps after seeing a few too many signs of their presence, namely mouse droppings. If you have been following along with this blog you will also know that the mice never showed up for their extermination. I even put one of the furry fellas to work,… Continue

Joe Frank... Who?!

Most of you think I am only obsessed with Robert Frank but there are other Franks I enjoy. Who doesn't like Paul Frank and his monkey Julius? But there is another Frank who is superb and little known. I have yet to meet anyone who knows what I am talking about when I begin to rave about Joe Frank and his radio program, yet he has been active for well over 20 years. I think many of you would recognize his voice, he was even a co-host of 'All Things… Continue

For Jeff and Double E

I came across this book at Gibert in Paris and instinctively bought it even though it has nothing to do with photography. It looks like a dealer's catalogue of surrealist books. It was not until I got it home and began to look closely that I realized it is a catalogue full of books that do not exist. All the covers and descriptions have been manufactured. It was the only copy in sight. I think it had strayed from where it was supposed to be shelved.… Continue

A Page for George while it is still St. Patrick's Day

In honor of member Patrick on his special holy day we pay tribute to his father George.

I only realized more recently what a big influence George had on me. Coming from a small family of step- and half-siblings like some sort of cobbled together life raft, I adopted myself into two sprawling blood-related families with a mother and a father and five or six children, the Homans and the Stranahans.



I often did not see George, he was more… Continue

Robert Frank Show and Film in Paris

Philippe Séclier had a special screening of his film Un Voyage Américain at the beautiful cinema La Pagode.

The pagoda was built for the 1935 Exposition Coloniale and was later moved to the rue de Babylone and repurposed as a cinema.



Philippe's film follows the traces of Robert Frank's book The Americans. He films the America of today, fifty years later.…

Encounter with Stella McCartney

I was out watching the Semi-Marathon de Paris this morning.

There were nearly 25,000 running under a light rain.

I had just photographed the famous Pompiers de Paris.

And suddenly appeared this incongruously dressed woman.

She passed me, turned around and… Continue
