songs about roving, rambling and plain hard luck & photography from the other side …

there ain’t no grave can hold my body down

There ain’t no grave can hold my body down / There ain’t no grave can hold my body down / When I hear that trumpet sound / I’m gonna rise right out of the ground / Ain’t no grave can hold my body down (Johnny Cash)

    Klasse Song, und noch dazu so großartig instrumentiert. –
    Dein Foto müsste man Pussy Riot zukommen lassen. Würde sie aufmuntern, denke ich.
    Auch der Spruch ist intelligenter Protest. Wo Du nun wieder gesehen haben wirst?! –
    Unabhängig von der politischen Botschaft überzeugt Dein Bild aber auch formal. Sehr gelungene Perspektive, die das Gitter aus dem Dunklen kommen lässt und vorne rechts ganz nah an den Betrachterstandpunkt heranführt. Das wenige Licht glänzt auf den Streben, hebt deren Textur hervor. Die Spiegelungen zeigen dezent den gewöhnlichen städtischen Umraum.
    Die Kunst überlebt jede Pressur – und hier meine ich vornehmlich Deine Kunst des Schwarzweiß.
    Liebe Grüße, Uwe

    Behing the iron gates, different worlds and different times (as you can see on my side since tonight), different poems/lyrics too, different stories to think about… Here, Siberian stories to dream of, some nightmare in fact. And the smooth reflections to help the viewer build a story, passing from one layer to the other: there’s the news surface and there is what’s behind… That’s also an instant shot of our world and we can feel that nowadays things are getting each day more dramatic: we may be close to a big chasm… And this picture of yours, Florian, tells us about all these things, visible and invisible.

    The symbolism of the incarceration of Pussy Riot is obvious here. Their particular dissent is still heard although the voices may have been rendered quiet–for a while. It may well rise again, or there may be others who continue. it’s a complicated discussion, and it will go on for some time.

    Very powerful shot ! Great composition !

  8. Pussy Riot hinter Gittern. Und Johnny Cash, der aus dem Grab heraus den Mut der Verzweifelten besingt. Eine großartige Wort-Bild-Ton-Collage.

  9. Do not admit defeat … Yes, the world panics. Yes, the world is unrecognizable. The 21st century is that of spirituality. Should we still believe in men?

    Great eye to find this one: very evocative!! Pussy riot behind the bars!! Yess, great one!
    Have a nice day.

    The grave isn’t always what we picture it my friend, sometimes the grave is as breathing as the lives we hold, never slow down enough to be buried in comfort and familiarity

  12. ay, Fritsch!

    free pussy riot!

    another great shot from you. great light, great contrast, great composition. and – at least to me – a great pairing of words and vision which only you can do!
