acabei de conhecer o trabalho de lisette model e já virei fã!

“The camera is an instrument of detection. We photograph not only what we know, but also what we don’t know”

Lisette Model’s approach to the photographic medium as well as to the subjects of her pictures is direct and uncompromising. Things as she spontaneously reacted to, not poured into a preconceived mold of vision, but unstaged and untampered with, were the stuff of Model’s pictures. Her photographs were national magazines and in shows at New York’s Museum of Modem Art and elsewhere gained her perhaps her greatest admiration from within the photographic profession itself.

Lisette Model was born into a wealthy Viennese family. Her father was Italian-Austrian and her mother French. Consequently her education was an international one, learning to speak three languages, travelling a great deal, being educated by private tutors rather than in public schools. Music was always an important part of her family’s life. In her early teens, she studied with the composer Arnold Schoenberg and lived for several years within the circle of his friends. “If ever in my life I had one teacher and one great influence, it was Schoenberg,” she said.

After the death of her father, Model moved to Paris where she continued her musical education. “Everything was concentrated on the ear…at that time I was not trained to see anything.” While living in Paris two very important events took place: she married the painter Evsa Model, and she began to take photographs. Lisette’s sister was an accomplished amateur photographer. One day Lisette borrowed her Rolleiflex and, with the help of a friend, learned to use it. In those early days of her photographic career she learned a lesson which was of the greatest importance to her photography: “Never take a picture of anything you are not passionately interested in.”

periodic

The Periodic Table of Typefaces is obviously in the style of all the thousands of over-sized Periodic Table of Elements posters hanging in schools and homes around the world. This particular table lists 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces today.

As with traditional periodic tables, this table presents the subject matter grouped categorically. The Table of Typefaces groups by families and classes of typefaces: san-serif, serif, script, blackletter, glyphic, display, grotesque, realist, didone, garalde, geometric, humanist, slab-serif and mixed.

dtmm = melhor nome de blog?

o don´t touch my moleskine é finalista na categoria “melhor nome de blog” no prêmio melhores da websfera 09, promovido pelo youpix!  =)

os outros concorrentes são o quero te pegar sóbrio, o corto cabelo e pinto e o te dou um dado?

a premiação acontece hoje, no espaço gafanhoto/pix, na av. rebouças

o pessoal da pix me perguntou como cheguei ao nome do blog, e aí vai a explicação:

Um dia eu estava escrevendo umas coisas muito pessoais no meu Moleskine de verdade, o caderninho, e pensei: meu Deus, que ninguém nunca abra esse negócio! Aí lembrei daquela música “Don´t Touch My Bikini”, do Halo Benders. E pensei: Don´t Touch My Moleskine! haha  =)


assim que foi divulgada a lista de finalistas, o prêmio virou polêmica, por conta da distinção entre “blogueiro do ano – que tenha assumido um papel relevante na sua área de atuação” e “webmusa – a menina mais gata/gostosa/simpática da internet brasileira”. por que na lista de blogueiros não aparecem mulheres? e por que não fazer a de webmuso também? afinal, blog bom independe de sexo, gostosura ou estado civil, né? depende, apenas, de bom conteúdo

recebi da ju sampaio um e-mail falando a respeito e convocando mulheres que têm blogs para falar do assunto. um monte de gente escreveu, acompanhem: escreva, lola, escreva; cynthia semíramis; mary w.; duas fridas; marjorie rodrigues
