Alternative 4 - The Obscurants"The fight for disclosure and justice"With "The Obscurants", Alternative 4 - the current main sphere of Duncan Patterson (ex Anathema, ex Antimatter) - release their second full-length album and continue the line of enquiry that began with their debut "The Brink" in 2011. Like its predecessor, "The Obscurants" stands out due to Patterson's particular songwriting style, which is occasionally echoing the works of his previous bands, yet it is offering his most mature and sophisticated material to date. The album explores avenues such as soft 1960s tremolo vibes, analogue synths and vocoders, to cranked up distorted guitars, with new lead singer Simon Flatley's crooner-like vocals perfectly completing the album's musical expression. Lyrically "The Obscurants" turns out to be a thought-provoking concept album on the subject of cover ups. Be it the media, police, government, or personal deceptions, it's about the obscuring of the

Some of my works will be exhibited in their gallery in Abertillery, Wales, from 11th to 31st December 2013.

daily deVIIationThank you very much, myraincheck, for featuring Postcard from Vienna...with LOVE as my 7th Daily Deviation! I'm particularly proud of this DD feature, because it's been one of my very rare attempts on Street Photography.At the same time I'd like to dedicate this DD feature to my grandma Emily, who passed away on 28 October 2013. I'll always love you, grandma! Previous DD features: Thank you very much for your constant support, even if I barely have the time to be online nowadays. My job, my life and my mind keep me busier than I'd like to and I'm usually way too exhausted in the evenings to spend my very short free time online. I'm looking forward to have a week off by the end of November and I'll try to catch up on your work an
Three In Three - The Book, and a personal noteHey there, everybody - long time no see, hope you're well!I'd like to let you know that my work "She Dreamt She Was Alone In An Empty Field" has been published by EintoeRn in a collaborative photobook. It's now available on blurb, please check it out by clicking on the image below or just follow this link!On a personal note:I apologise for my absence during the last weeks. I'm a bit struggling with life nowadays, mostly with my job tbh. I try to fight my way back to normal though. Until then I'd like to share this video with you (thanks to JtheQ for pointing me to that video) in which Kevin Breel talks about his mental illness. It's a matter close to my heart to help raising awareness for this issue...caus
the*kickplate*project on KickstarterHey there everybody,long time no see here on WhoNeedsColour. For those of you who have wondered about the monthly feature: we had to skip it for personal reasons but I promise we'll be back by the mid of September with a double feature. Be warned! Today, I'd like to introduce Zosia and Dafydd, aka zosiaq and thesadstork. A few months ago they have started the*kickplate*project, a temporary gallery in their hometown of Abertillery, Wales. You can find more information about their project on their blog. By now they have organised two exhibitions, "Visitors" and "behind her "I"s". But idealism and creative ideas usually don't pay bills, and that's where you come into play.For their upcoming "Collaborators" exhibition, Zosia and Dafydd have started a
I Have A DreamI say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.I have a dream that one day the whole world will rise up, and live out the true meaning of the US creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’I have a dream that one day on the hills of Afghanistan the sons of former warlords and the sons of former occupiers will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.I have a dream that one day even the state of Syria, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice and sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a world where they will not be judged by the color of their skin or the content of their email and text messages but by the c

Collection: Snowed InShare|ArchiveSnowed InThere is no more stark dichotomy than the conflicting feelings we have about the wintertime. Many find the snow–blanketed landscape makes winter the most serenely beautiful of the seasons. But people die of exposure in the cold. The idea of being “snowed in” evokes thoughts of fireplaces and hot chocolate and snuggling under piles of blankets, of family reunions and gift–giving, and taking an annual “time–out.”But it also means lost work hours and school days and danger should someone need to go to the hospital through white–out conditions on ice–glazed roads. Winter is the most beautiful but also the

Collection: For The Love of DogShare|ArchiveFor the love of dogThe problem with lovers and spouses is that they have their own separate lives. They can’t always wake in the morning to a day of loving you until it’s time to close their eyes to sleep at night with their heads filled with thoughts of you. There are some activities necessary for their human existence that must be attended to, no matter how much you need a foot massage. Not so with dogs. Your dog lives only for you. Dogs are instinctive pack animals and you are the Leader of the Pack.Scientists now report that your dog “reads” your pheromones and other subtle scent indicators to know if you’re happy or sad
Collection: StaircasesShare|ArchiveStaircasesModern elevators have made “skyscrapers” possible—buildings with so many floors that reaching them only by stairway access would be a ridiculous and exhausting proposition. And so stairways have become hidden in blandly utilitarian “fire exit” stairwells. Even buildings now designed with no more than two or three floors save space with elevators rather than having a central stairway. And so one of the glories of our most beautiful architecture is rapidly disappearing, being preserved only in private mansion residences. It is a pity.There is something magical in a stairway—this structure endlessly “in motion,
