Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.
Chris Crocker


"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".
Tom Ford


Snapper : Thomas Ruff

Thomas Ruff is a German photographer who lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany. He shares a studio on Hansaallee, with Laurenz Berges, Andreas Gursky and Axel Hütte. A former municipal electricity station, it was converted between 1998 and 2000 by architects Herzog & de Meuron, of Tate Modern fame, and updated with a basement gallery in 2011. In 2003, Thomas Ruff published a photographic collection of "Nudes" with a text by French author Michel Houellebecq. His images were based on Internet porn, which was digitally processed and obscured without any camera or traditional photographic device. In 2009, the Aperture Foundation in New York published "jpegs", a large-scale book dedicated exclusively to his monumental series of pixilated enlargements of internet-culled images, all compressed using the standard JPEG format. On February 7, 2011, one of his "Nudes" pictures appeared on the cover of New York Magazine. And Texan designer Tom Ford owns the image below.
