BIRTH OF AQUARIUSBREAKING UP THE LIST AT NUMBER 8 IS NATIVE AMERICAN ARTIST MATU CRONEY.  IS IT EASY FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER TO STAY BEHIND A CAMERA?  “GROWING UP MY GRANDFATHER HAD A PHOTOGRAPHIC DARKROOM.  BOTH MY GRANDFATHER, & FATHER WERE VERY SECRETIVE ABOUT THEIR STUDIO WORK.  I SUPPOSE THAT SENSE OF MYSTERY PROPELLED MY OWN FASCINATION WITH THE MEDIUM.”LIGHTBOX 2014IN PHOTOGRAPHY GENDER CAN ALSO BE SHOWN AS PERFORMATIVE WHEN MECHANISMS OF MASCULINITY APPEAR AS OVERDETERMINED.  IF A MAN ACTS EXCESSIVELY MASCULINE OR PERFORMS TOO MUCH OR TOO WELL, IT CAN BECOME CLEAR TO THE VIEWER OR TO HIMSELF THAT HE IS PERFORMING HIS GENDER.  FOR IN ORDER TO HIDE MASCULINITY’S PERFORMATIVITY, A MAN MAY HAVE TO LIMIT HIS PERFORMANCE AND CONTAIN IT AS NON-EXCESSIVE.  A MAN WHO ACTS TOO OFTEN IN A WAY PERCEIVED AS HYPER-MASCULINE CALLS ATTENTION TO HIS MASCULINITY AS SOMETHING PERFORMED.BLACK IN FIVEMALE NUDE IN ART HISTORY (C.600 BCE – PRESENT) GREEK ART / ROMAN ART / BYZANTINE ART / MEDIEVAL EUROPEAN ART / RENAISSANCE ART / BAROQUE ART / NEOCLASSICAL ART / 19TH CENTURY ART / 20TH CENTURY ART / CONTEMPORARY ART    “WHAT SPIRIT IS SO EMPTY AND BLIND, THAT IT CANNOT RECOGNIZE THE FACT THAT THE FOOT IS MORE NOBLE THAN THE SHOE, AND SKIN MORE BEAUTIFUL THAT THE GARMENT WITH WHICH IT IS CLOTHED?MILLENNIAL GENTLEMAN

    I had to do a double take on this one… I thought could this be the Matu who has written me a while in time???

    So I checked… and behold!

    Interesting view and drawing above… machismo and gender… looks like something I wrote as opinionated commentator on my old website about the two sides of one subculture where say Saturday Night Fever came from with John Revolta and the extreme over masculine side of that subculture…

    Native American? What tribe if I may ask?

    Did Matu experience any times on any Indian Reservations growing up?

    It brought memories of the Wind River reservation in Wyoming and Southwest Sweat Lodges once upon a time.

    Shortest haired Native American I’ve ever seen above pics, Kemosabe… need to stay away from the guys who scalp people and blame Native Americans for it to justify wars and conquest with genocide.

    Now I wonder if peyote would be appropriate for 924 gang.

    Well so has artist Matu been doing any Wovoka Ghost Dances of late at those Techno clubs in Europe smoking peace pipe loaded with jimson weed perhaps?

    Wow so Matu is artist too… amazing. Congrats.
