Sinds enkele jaren houd ik mij bezig met fotografie. Het is een hobby al heb ik een opleiding gevolgd. Als liefhebber hoef ik mij niet te beperken en heb ik de vrijheid om alle onderwerpen te fotograferen.
Mocht u interesse hebben kan u altijd een foto bestellen. Laat een bericht achter wanneer u een originele foto toegestuurd wilt krijgen. Mijn website, www.photolus.com is volledig onafhankelijk en in eigen beheer.
In de Onze Lieve Vrouw Kathedraal van Antwerpen staan en hangen de prachtigste kunstwerken. Aangezien ik geen of weinig tijd heb zult u geen verdere details vinden over de werken. Dat kan luiheid zijn maar daar kruipt enorm veel tijd in en die heb ik momenteel niet. Ik zou wel willen maar met mijn fulltime job is dat niet haalbaar. Het internet is een goede handleiding en er zal al behoorlijk wat geschreven en gepubliceerd zijn door echte profs en dus waag ik mij daar niet aan. Zelfbehoud!
Kurt Donald Cobain (February 20, 1967 – April 5, 1994) was an American singer, songwriter, and musician. Cobain is remembered as one of the most iconic rock musicians in alternative music.
Born in Aberdeen, Washington, Cobain formed the band Nirvana with Krist Novoselic and Aaron Burckhard in 1987 and established it as part of the Seattle music scene which later became known as grunge. Nirvana’s debut album Bleach was released on the independent record label Sub Pop in 1989. After signing with major label DGC Records, Nirvana found success with “Smells Like Teen Spirit” from their second album Nevermind (1991). Nevermind was in part responsible for bringing both alternative rock and grunge to a mainstream audience. It has been ranked highly on lists of the greatest albums of all time by publications such as Rolling Stone and Time. Following the success of Nevermind, Nirvana was labeled “the flagship band” of Generation X and Cobain was hailed as “the spokesman of a generation.” Cobain resented this, believing his message and artistic vision had been misinterpreted by the public, with his personal problems often subject to media attention.
During the last years of his life, Cobain struggled with heroin addiction and chronic health problems such as depression. He struggled with the personal and professional pressures of fame, and his marriage to musician Courtney Love. On April 8, 1994, Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle by an electrician who had come to install a home security system. The King County Coroner concluded Cobain died from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to his head. His death at age 27 has been a topic of public fascination and debate.
Nirvana, with Cobain as a songwriter, has sold over 25 million albums in the U.S., and over 75 million worldwide. In 2003, David Fricke of Rolling Stone ranked him the 12th greatest guitarist of all time. He was later ranked the 73rd greatest guitarist and 45th greatest singer of all time by the same magazine, and by MTV as seventh in the “22 Greatest Voices in Music”. In 2006, he was placed at number twenty by Hit Parader on their list of the “100 Greatest Metal Singers of All Time”. Cobain was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, along with Nirvana bandmates Dave Grohl and Novoselic, in their first year of eligibility. They were inducted by the frontman of American alternative rock band R.E.M., Michael Stipe, who was a close friend of Cobain.
Lily Rose Beatrice Allen (born 2 May 1985) is an English recording artist, talk show host and actress. The daughter of actor and musician Keith Allen and film producer Alison Owen, she had a challenging childhood, without a stable residence and had been a pupil in thirteen different school institutions until the age of fifteen. Her teenage years comprised her evolution in musical tastes, from glam rock to alternative, having run away from home to attend the Glastonbury Festival at the age of fourteen. A year later, Allen abandoned school and concentrated on improving her performing and compositional skills. Afterwards, she created several demo songs, and near the end of 2005, she created a profile on MySpace, where she made public some of her recordings. A contract was signed with the label Regal Recordings, as the views on MySpace rose to tens of thousands. In 2006, work began on completing what would be the first studio album of the singer, and its first mainstream single, titled “Smile”, earned the top position on the UK Singles Chart, while her debut record, Alright, Still, was well received on the international market, selling over 2.6 million copies and brought Allen a nomination at the Grammy Awards, BRIT Awards and MTV Video Music Awards. She then began hosting her own talk-show, Lily Allen and Friends, on BBC Three.
Her second major release, It’s Not Me, It’s You, saw a genre shift for her, having more of an electropop feel, rather than the ska and reggae influences of the first one. The album debuted at the number one position on the UK Albums Chart and the Australian ARIA Charts and was appreciated by the critics, noting the singer’s musical evolution and maturity. It spawned the hit singles “The Fear” and “Fuck You”, popular mostly in Europe. Allen and Amy Winehouse have been credited with starting a process that led to the media-proclaimed “year of the women” in 2009 that has seen five female artists making music of “experimentalism and fearlessness” long nominated for the Mercury Prize.
In September of 2009 Allen stated she sees no way that she could ever make a profit making new records. She also announced that she has “no plans” to make another album and she is not renewing her record contract. She also announced she is considering a career in acting.
