time is on my side

time is on my side time is on my side - rolling stones When Richard Hamilton saw news photographs of Mick Jagger and art dealer Robert Fraser in the back of a police van during their trial for drugs offences at Chichester Court in June 1967, he decided to create a modern history painting. What he produced was Swingeing London, a painting and later a print that takes a historical moment and holds it up for scrutiny. He copied one of the photographs, adding real metal for the handcuffs and a replica of the police van's window frame. Although handcuffed together, the two men in it are reacting totally differently to their public ordeal. Jagger, in the foreground in the green jacket and tie that he wore to evoke Oscar Wilde, looks small, terrified. His hand shielding his face reduces him to just his lips. Fraser could not be more different. In the shadows and behind his shades, he looks almost threatening, His raised hand beckons. Jagger is young and frightened. Fraser is harder, older, even gangster-like. my home town - I was there - I am here - time is on my side - yes it is!! ...

kodak ghosts

kodak ghosts Nothing to do but to sit with the doubt, watching the clouds and the weather. Since you've been gone, you know, it's been a little hard, but at last I got my loneliness together. I pretend to myself that I'm much better off, no one to make me waste my time. And if I'm feeling down there's only me to blame, it's me that's on the end of the line. Maybe it's as well that I part such a thought for ages I had nothing new to show you. But now I see your memory making love in some hotel. When I recollect I didn't know you. Sometimes in the night I take a lazy walk to the tree where we made our first confession. Love and of permanence and other vicious lies –– all the things that now need no impression. Rewind, I've nothing to do but to sit with the doubt, watching the clouds and the weather. Since you've been gone, you know, it's been a little hard, but at last I got my loneliness together. ...
