i’m jealous of christophe dillinger

The list of things needed to make me jealous today:

A second hand Olympia typewriter, a little bottle of white correcting fluid, and a stack of beautifully mundane 6×6 negatives shot by a French artist named Christophe Dillinger. Obviously, a swivel chair would have been the cherry on top of that list, but sadly, no swivel chair… for anyone.

    Oh I love those photos with the text. I may sound like I’m trying to say ‘I thought of it first’ but it does remind me of something I wanted to do last year, but of course he did it better than I ever could! 🙂

    I don’t know why, but these make me want to cry a bit (in the most lovely and watching-the-movie-amelie-kind of way…) They are very moving to me.
    Great find!
