Personal Matters 3 & Shipping Containers

It’s been over three months since I last posted here. Things have changed again quite dramatically. It’s still a bit messy and rollercoaster-like but good things are happening.

So here we are, three months down the road. I still don’t have a working space; I realised my rent for housing right now is too high to be able to rent another space for working so I’m looking for a different solution (on paper calculations always seem so pretty and viable 🙂 ).

I met someone new, also looking for a place to stay, so we might be doing that together. Fast you say? Yes. If it doesn’t work out it’s best to know sooner than later. And what certainty do you ever really have?

My personal photography I have kept to a bare minimum. The thought of not being able to work in my darkroom frustrates me in a way that I do not want to think about my work right now. I have shot a couple of rolls of film that still need development (don’t need a darkroom for that but have to pick up stuff to do it).

I did visit FoMu in Antwerp and Musée de la Photographie à Charleroi (—> wowwww) during my holidays past month. We also visited the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht which I had postponed until then. We have been on a photographic journey to Cockerill-Sambre in Belgium, Liege area, together with my dad and brother. We’ll be going back there for a more extensive visit, hopefully somewhere soon. Past weekend we visited Ghent to see the exhibition ‘Fotografie Herontdekt’ at Zebrastraat which had work of Jeroen de Wijs, Marinus Ortelee & Charlotte Edam, Roger Kockaerts and a couple of more to me unfamiliar people. Worth a visit. If you want to stay over look at this great Apartment Sleepstreet which we greatly enjoyed during our stay 🙂

So, not doing nothing but merely focusing on different things, which is a healthy thing to be doing from time to time anyway. Trying to find back myself and my photography, but also looking at mistakes made and figuring out what’s really important and go from there. Things can only grow stronger after this. My spirits are high. I do miss you however, and my collodion chemistry so hope to get things back together soon 🙂

    Hello Indra, Thank you for sharing with us, wish you all the best in this new phase, if you have love in your life, then everything will come out just fine and your work will be taking new steps you never imagined. Remember you can always take pictures with your head, and carry them forever with you, you don’t always need the camera with you. Enjoy the ride!!
