and one of her best friends...
I've seen a lot of pictures now, if pictures could talk to us ?... I think a lot of pictures from
Grace and Janis would say something like ; " Holy shit !, again a man and his camera for
picture number 9867986 of me..." Because on a lot of pictures they don't look great as usual.
They look tired !. And some pro-photographers didn't care about those 2 women, they just
did take their pictures... and goodby... Some pictures are real SHIT and i wouldn't post them
here. Not for >1.000.000 $... NEVER !!!. There are some real beautiful and great pictures
out there from those 2 women. And everybody should remember ;
It was at their time a MAN's world ! ... Maybe not everyday the same fun !
A pro-photographer who likes to make the best possible pictures should work WITH the
model NOT against the model ! (model= object/human in front of camera). And not take
a picture just to get something on paper, he or she should ask the model to look normal.
And not to smile because the picture needs a smile, that doesn't work. And not to look like
a funeral guest, that looks a bit crappy. All these little things can be the difference between
just another picture and a GREAT art-photograph.
Why i like that photograph of Janis Joplin ? Because the photographer did give her
a camera to play with (1)or even did explain how to take some photos. That's 1000000X
better than a bottle of whiskey !!!. And maybe he didn't talk about music but ANYTHING
else of her life anything !. 100% sure, she would talk about anything... NOT always the
same questions, they answere always the same questions just because not to be
an asshole to people from musikmagazines /photographers etc. I think sometimes you
can see it on the photo, there is something...the word is ; spontaneous
(1) Is it her own camera ?, i don't know about it !...
