SKY & SAND
DAILY TRAVEL BOOK NUMBER Y
RAMATUELLE & DEAUVILLE, 2013
DEETEEBEE FROM A SUMMER AFTER SUMMER
SEPTEMBER - NOVEMBER 2013
SAINT - TROPEZ - NORMANDIE
It's a sound by Paul Kalkbrenner. Flying to the moon, a place where you can find me. The dream of building a castle in the sky and in the sand, a world that nobody understands.
It's summer after summer, september, november. It's the South that I know since I was born, my other house and land. It's the nearest sea Paris gets, Normandie, Deauville and around. It's me looking at the sky everyday and being amazed everyday the same way and everyday in a different way, alone in her last house of the South facing the green and blues, having an appointment with myself everyday at seven, when it's warm enough to have a swim, when the heat goes away and if you're lucky you can feel the wind. It's me looking at the sun going down and hiding behind the same tree, the sun is hiding, disappearing in the mountains and I ask her, the name of the tree. It's the dreamy view from the pool and it's silence. And this endless love I have for time alone, the luxury of that time and a noise finally, the water has a sound when I get inside. Don't have to worry, I'll come back soon.
DAILY TRAVELING BLOOD
SKY AND SAND IS A SOUND BY PAUL KALKBRENNER
The Daily Travel Books are sixteen volumes made of instant unedited shots. They are witnesses of a universe belonging to a moment in time where the best camera is the only one you carry with you.
Although they are not pretending to be art, a few shots by them have been shown in Paris and Barcelona’s collective and solo shows.
Often squared as if they were straight, the Deeteebees were fuzzy soft black stars until things exploded. Walking away in California, they cheated on squares and monochromes for a colorful Good Day spreading in Elle A. Flirting with documentary when they are other bricks in the wall from Paris, they are most of the time intimate love songs. Like For Marlon in green and blues, or Wasteland inspired by a kid from the woods.
Instant love for the second they're living in, of course they dress in Polaroids sometimes. Using filters as a classical fiction technique, they are naked as unedited raws. Taken for themselves without any desire to be shown, they are very shy and deliver many sides of what time can be.
They obviously wouldn’t be themselves without Pink Floyd, Antony and the Jo, The Dresden Dolls, Tom Waits, TS Eliot and Woodkid, Grant Lee Buffalo and Keaton Henson or Unkle and Tash Sultana. They just can’t stop the music, cause they are nothing else but a soundtrack. Always on the move.
Be kind with them, they are sensitive.
