In this episode of Tac au tac from 1972, Jean Giraud puts on his Gir hat to make a western jam comic with his mentor Joseph Gillain, better known as Jijé. Hugo Pratt is also there, hanging out and watching.
[note: this episode does not have sound]
Sometimes I find pieces of paper with semi-nonsensical things I wrote down in the past that seem to no longer make any sense. This is one of them, which is seriously the most poetic sounding thing I have ever come up with.
Or at least I think I wrote it…and I can’t imagine anyone else coming up with that…
Not not she
He him her
No none of those not she or he or him or her
This am and this am is floating above it
This am is or be
No this am just am
The am does not exist it just am
Below everything was mountains creatures green things and moving things”
Woman Photographs Herself Receiving Strange Looks in Public
“I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces. I seek out spaces that are visually interesting and geographically diverse. I try to place myself in compositions that contain feminine icons or advertisements. Otherwise, I position myself and the camera in a pool of people…and wait.
The images capture the gazer in a microsecond moment where they, for unknowable reasons, have a look on their face that questions my presence. Whether they are questioning my position in front of the lens or questioning my body size, the gazer appears to be visually troubled that I am in front of them.”

Thought this was actually really cool and I’d share it with you guys! Takes a lot to get up there and do something like this. Love it!
