Michaël Zancan has some very interesting and beautiful work. He was born in south west France in 1976. As far as he remembers, he has always been doodling on my schoolbooks margins or on the class tables, which cost him a fair number of punishments. Attracted to any form of creation, he mostly devoted his teenage years to computer creation and was passionate about programming. He had to wait until the age of eighteen before he got involved into painting, thanks to his exciting street art (not to say graffiti) period. In parallel he has tried a lot of painting techniques, such as airbrushing which sounded like the natural tool for switching from walls to paper.

When he was about 22 , he tired of the ephemeral nature of graffiti, and he really started to get involved into drawing. He practiced a lot thanks to various crafts for his engineering school’s gazette, party posters or t-shirts. Thanks to the final discovery of oil painting, he finally felt what painting meant.

The serious decision to become a painter came after his sterile, inartistic, one-year long experience of engineer’s work.

The collection

2007

There’s a fading collection of leftover friends, gathering dust on a living room mantelpiece.

She never thought them pretty or valuable, but still she keeps them handy, a hedge against winter’s winds.

Andrew Hersey’s site is spartan and intriguing.

In his journal I found photos of Barack Obama.

There is hope.

Asolutely Nothing is a photography site that makes one want to continue to explore. Says the author of the site, “this website is where i post my own attempts at taking pictures and it also aims to keep cyril campbell’s memory and photography alive.” I love the layout. Most images were taken with a canon eos 20d, 5d, eos 1n, nikon f601, or a rolleiflex.
(This must mean something to some of you) I heartily recommend a glace at this varied and beautiful site!
