Gruppo F inbox: Burim Myftiu

Burim Myftiu from Kosova sent us this interesting set of pictures
from a project called SUFI-X about Dervish rituals.

A jockey is all I want to be.

And finally, OH MY MASTER,
when my useful strength is gone,
do not turn me out to starve or freeze,
or sell me to some cruel owner,
to be slowly tortured and starved to death;

but do thou, My Master, take my life in the kindest ways,
and your God will reward you here and hereafter.

You will not consider me irreverent if I ask this
in the name of HIM who was born in a stable.


I forgot love existed

I forgot that love existed troubled in my mind.
Heartache after heartache, worried all the time.
I forgot that love existed
Then I saw the light
Everyone around me make everything alright.
Oh, oh Socrates and Plato they Praised it to the skies.
Anyone who's ever loved
Everyone who's ever tried.
If my heart could do my thinking
And my head begin to feel
I would look upon the world anew
And know what's truly real
- Van Morrison

Invited guest: Jacek Poremba

I'd like to present you some works by one of the most important photographers in Poland. In 2001 during his journey to Sudan Jacek Poremba started his author's projects. Although it require a lot of travelling, he successfully managed to reconcile artistic photography with commercial work. The photographs shows a characteristic Poremba style, no matter if he's working on his artistic "personal" project or commercial one.
Here are some chosen photographs from Sudan - his most interesting author's series.
