welcome to the devil's playground

I'm sorry Luq, but I'm going to sum up all night based on that marvelous portrait of Clemens Schick by Nan Goldin. She's my personal favourite and you own an amazing print (even if that print lives inside a wardrobe).
First, I must point out that Luq has immaculate taste. and I mean immaculate - it's spread across everything - from perfectly aligned books (Luq admitted to book shopping with a ruler) to matching pictures and themes for each room.
(that little kid on a tricycle is baby Luq)
We were treated to an African dinner in Africa themed room.
But first, there were cocktails!
Followed by a lovely starter.
And dessert!
(Brad wasn't part of dessert)
Then Sasha arrived! Slightly late, but I guess, it's better late then never. If Luq was cross, he didn't show - a truly perfect host! Sasha went through every pot and stuck his spoon into every dish.
Here I must point out that while Luq hides his love for Nan or Clemens, he has no qualms about hiding his weed pot.
(it's right outside his kitchen window)
The night finished with us chatting about life, work and vino.

"A lot of people seem to think that art or photography is about the way things look, or the surface of things. That's not what it's about for me. It's really about relationships and's really hard for me to do commercial work because people kind of want me to do a Nan Goldin. They don't understand that it's not about a style or a look or a setup. It's about emotional obsession and empathy." - Nan Goldin.
