“Memoirs Of The Geisha” – A Look Back At The Traditional Japanese Female Entertainers

A long standing stigma has been placed on Japanese Geisha girls. When someone thinks of a Geisha, they think of a glorified prostitute or call girl. This is far from the truth. Geisha’s are entertainers, and they are trained vigorously in art, music and dancing. If you translate Geisha into English, you get artist.

Two geishas receive a visiting samurai, Japan, circa 1880:

Hulton Archive

Being a true Geisha is an honor to the girls, who when they become full-fledged Geisha’s are then called geiko. If a girl begins her training to be a geisha before she is 21, she is called a maiko, meaning child dancer. A girl or woman can become a geisha even if she wasn’t a maiko, but if she had been a maiko she would enjoy much more prestige. Continue »

Cyril Porchet Photographs Ornate Baroque Churches Around The World


Iglesia de la Cartuja, Granada, Spain.

Looking at the gorgeous, dramatic images of Baroque churches in Cyril Porchet’s series, “Seduction,” you might mistake the photographer for a religious man. But Porchet is more interested in the power the photos represent than the religious ideology. His intention was to explore the seductive power of display. What is extraordinary is how much you lose all sense of perspective and depth, such is the overabundance of detail. I like how the odd feature confuses all the more; like the red rope of the ornamental light in the image below for instance which neatly splices the image in half. I could pore over these for hours and hours. Continue »

How To Cure ‘Mototoxicosis’

“Mototoxicosis” is a disease that affects Russian bikers. It is caused by the harmful effects of snow, ice and low temperatures, but above all the inability to ride a motorcycle. If you or someone you know suffers from this ailment, read on.

Margo Pankratova:

Valeriy Zaytsev

“There are two reasons for keeping my bike inside the apartment. First, my daughter loves the sight of it. Second, the cold slush in the garage has a detrimental effect. After all, one day you might have to sell it. So in winter I prefer to keep it by my side.”

Winter in Russia is making way for the long-anticipated motor season (traditionally mid-April to early October). For Russian bikers suffering from “mototoxicosis,” no amount of snowboarding, skiing or skating can compensate for the lack of adrenaline in their bloodstream. But many Russian bikers prefer not to part company with their other half in winter. They might not be able to ride it, but they can still admire it. Continue »
