” Sweet Spike ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-F 50mm F2.8 Macro )

” Nobody likes Sweet Spike… As a matter of fact, nobody liked him ever since he was born. He used to be quite a nice fellow, you know? Unfortunately his strange looks, weird diet and not so much fresh breath made him really unpopular. He’s genuinely desperate nowadays, he just flies around and tries to hug anyone… that can’t be good, can it? He used to be charming, really smart and with a good talk. Sadly enough, time changes everyone… and for poor Sweet Spike the change was not for the better… I mean, I don’t blame him, you know? How would you personally feel if everyone, without any exception, would hate you from the moment they meet you? Not nice, huh? And it wasn’t nice for Spike as well… All he ever wanted was to be just like others; nice, colourful, likeable, cute and things like that. Didn’t work out at all… He got beaten many times, with many different things; newspapers, towels, flip-flops, got electrocuted, sprayed with chemicals and so much more… It’s just painful, you know? Not just for the body, but for the soul as well… Poor Spike, I heard he got addicted to pooh again too. It is not his fault really? The freaking nature designed him like that, what can he do about it? Nothing, exactly… so why all the hate!? Sweet Spike~!! Not everyone hates you~!! Can you hear me~!? Don’t you do anything stupid~!! Some of us understand how you feel and you are not alone~!! Unluckily… Sweet Spike is not with us any more… Those were my last words to him, and this is the last photograph of him. Sweet Spike was found dead at a hotel room in Des Moines, Iowa, on May 25. Test results have shown he died of an accidental diarrhoea overdose. He is survived by… no one. You won’t be missed, but you were still… pretty fly for a stinky guy. “

” State Of Cosiness ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

” Every place has got a history behind it… Every mark has got its own meaning… but WHAT THE FOCK HAS HAPPENED HERE~?! Oh well, it must have been something if I had taken out my camera and took some shots of it, right? Damn right it is something ~!! It might not be the most cosy place you could have imagined, but I am still in a strong opinion that it is a beautiful and unique view. In a world where everything strives to be perfect, nice and spotless… this stands out and shouts in your face… FUCK YOU AND YOUR PERFECT WORLD MATE~!! And you know what…? I like it. I love it. I just wish I could see and experience every single moment that has scarred this place with its own uniqueness. I would love to feel that anger, hate, love, excitement and everything else that has caused this place to look the way it looks now. It is truly a rare view nowadays… It might not be the prettiest, it doesn’t try to be something it is not, I agree… but it feels real… Real enough to keep you wonder about the rest of the world packed with lies and masks that try to cover your eyes with something that is not really there… So if you ask me, what do I see in this wretched place? My answer would be… Everything that you cannot my dear… because your eyes are not used to see what is real any more. Every single mark is connected to a strong emotional feeling that has occurred at some point in past. It almost feels like a giant raw database, a CD full of music you cannot really hear, a pack of files on a memory stick you cannot read… A secret message that is not to be decoded or understood… merely felt and forgotten… “

” Questioning ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS II )

” Have you ever wondered if our fate is a reflection of our past or future deeds? What if what we did in the past, is the outcome of what happens now? What if the things that happen now, are the reversed echoes of what we will do in the future? When we are young, we tend to ask lots of questions connected with the reality we perceive. Once we grow older and feast our eyes long enough, we start asking questions about things that are beyond our sight. Let us take this another step forward… What if our life is the balance of the previous one? The total opposite, the sum that brings everything to a perfect equilibrium… all that just to turn everything upside down… once again, in a while. You have got to be careful about this, if you are not… You may find yourself strapped to a chair, doing nothing but trying to answer a downpour of questions without real answers. We are not designed to breach boundaries and go beyond our capabilities of understanding things we shouldn’t have known about. Once you start asking the wrong questions, looking what is hiding behind the blueprint of the life, you will get caught. You will find yourself in a room without the exit. The only way out of that place, will be a dark tunnel, filled with everything you are and always were afraid of. You can choose to descent into it and face your nightmares, or you can stay locked inside of it, for the rest of your life… trying to solve the puzzle, which is clearly missing a few crucial pieces. “

” My Shy First Model ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited )

Original Street Artist: Anna Matuszewska in association with Galeria Sztuki 58, Radom.

” I work mostly with the subjects that do not complain much. They do not require anything more than being discovered and captured properly. They do not ask for money, return of favour or anything else to be honest… they are just happy the world can see them. I am not going to lie though… I would love to capture some beautiful girls too. Unfortunately, it would be utterly complicated for both sides. I do not go for any compromises, so… natural light only, my place of choice, my time of the day etc. and etc. I don’t think there are many people who are willing to sacrifice so much for almost nothing in return. So yea… no beautiful girls for me, at least for now. Maybe I will start with my family, hmm… The problem is, I either see beauty or ugliness. There is no middle ground in my eyes and I don’t think they would like to see what I wanted to see. Oh well, I’ll start with my grandparents, I think they won’t mind. As for people in general, there are some fine specimens walking on the face of our planet. I myself have seen some amazing looking girls, and I am not talking about some popular type of beauty here, more like something extraordinary and unique, something you don’t see every day. There aren’t too many out there, but you can still find them, just like with everything else that is valuable. The problem is, how do you approach a girl that is 5 years old without getting arrested? Obviously you should talk with parents but… Who on Earth would go with some creep with a camera around a city in search for a perfect place, light etc. It should be easier with older girls and women but it is not… Everyone is super busy with their own life, not to mention the idea of going to some shady places with a total stranger… As for now, being awfully famous is the only solution that should deal with my problems in this difficult scenario. Or rich, I could always offer a nice sum of money in return for me being weird. So yes, this is my first model. She is a bit shy, but I still have a mad respect for her. She’s the one ladies and gents, she is the first one that let me be weird around her. “

” Hurt ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-5 II s + SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited )

Original Street Artist: Anna Matuszewska in association with Galeria Sztuki 58, Radom.

” Why do we hurt each other? What is even more important… Why do we hurt people we love? We hate the idea of hurting people we care about, yet we still do it… Is it the unknown? Is it because you can feel it more than anything else? Are we checking them or ourselves? That delicate and barely perceptible feeling of satisfaction that we caused someone pain. You can easily hide it, it’s a weak feeling, but it is there and you know it. Somewhere deep deep inside of you, you enjoyed it, you liked it, it feels good doesn’t it? We like to hurt, and we like being hurt. It shakes our flat emotionless life from time to time a bit, reminds us to appreciate the good things in our stagnated and impassive existence. Or maybe… Maybe I am wrong…? What if I got this all wrong!? Maybe people are not like that at all, maybe it is… Maybe it is just me…? Could it be, just me? What if I am a monster leeching on someone else’s feelings and emotions? What if I am a parasite feeding on souls of innocent creatures, causing them pain, and look… how they suffer in results of my foul doing. What if I cannot or don’t know how to love, and hurting is the only thing that makes me feel…? “

” Angry Grandpa ” by tgchan ( Pentax K-50 + HD Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Limited Macro )

” Angry Grandpa, yup, that’s him. We call this guy so, because he is old and mean to everyone around him. He sits in his garden all day long and looks around with those small but smart eyes, hidden deep under the emotionless eyebrows. A long stretched moustache across his face, successfully covers possible grimace. He doesn’t like kids, nor dogs, as a matter of fact… he doesn’t like anyone except for his other grumpy buddies. They visit him from time to time, they barely speak though, just sit there and stare at nothing together… Some say he remembers the war, others gossip about him being some kind of a hero. All I know for sure, is that he is not nice and he never allows us to play around his place… He has so many interesting things in his backyard… I wish we could go in there and look around some. Unfortunately, it is out of the question… Some say, he likes to plant landmines next to his flowers… I am not eager to find out if it’s true… “

” Rust Light ” by tgchan ( Fujifilm X100 BLACK Limited Edition )

” Have you ever wondered how it would be, if all the lights would suddenly go off…? What if the sun would never come up again? Can you imagine living in a darkness for the rest of your life? The world drowned in shadows as dark as ink, chaos and panic reigning on the streets… Never knowing what is hiding behind the black abyss. What if something else came with the darkness… something eternal and evil. What if this rusty lamp was the last thing you were looking at, before it has all started… “
