A bit of a random post... A few years ago, I got this first-edition book showing the palettes of famous artists. I just thought it was a cool concept. Only 800 were made. It wasn't cheap when I got it, but now I see them online for ~$400+. Below is a bit of the description from the book.

"...The photographer to embark on a genuine research project which, over the course of many years and many trips, has seen him visit dozens of museums, foundations and private collections, and immortalise the palettes that the great masters of the 19th and 20th centuries used to create their paintings.

When closely analysed, this simple work tool proves to be a bridge between the personality of the artist and their paintings. On every palette, the preparation of the paints, the texture of the colours applied, mixed and dried, the paint that has been removed, the strokes of the palette knife or brush, the stains, are all intimately associated with the hand, the body and the mind of the artist. The painting before the painting, these aspects all hint at the artist’s working method, their colour preferences, the way they transfer colour to the canvas; an intimate witness to the painter’s journey, the palette is the legacy they leave behind."

Maradona - L'Equipe - "God Is Dead" - Newspaper

My family is from Argentina, and Maradona is my dad's favorite player. A friend sent me this paper from when Maradona passed. I love the photo they used ('82 WC, I believe).

Justice - Ticket | Olympia - Paris

Post image 1

While living in Europe, some friends from NYC visited, and we met in Paris for this show. It was one of the most memorable concerts I've been to. I framed this to remind me of a more carefree time in my life.
