"Understand, I have digital cameras that the manufacturers send me, like Leica and Fuji, a whole lot of them. I don’t ever use them. I can’t figure them out." - William Eggleston.
Amazing film colors capured by brilliant #WilliamEggleston who still had never taken a digital picture, interviewed by our beloved and missed friend @lordrochester for Purple's latest issue. You can read the full interview on purple.fr !

Purple TV presents Red Feelings the new music video by Parisian post-classical electronic composers LÉO HOFFSAES and LOTO RETINA, taken from their first collaborative album “Early Contact” released today on @permalnk, Paris. Watch the full video on #PurpleTV now!
Hoffsaes and Retina split the composition synergistically – with Hoffsaes focusing on the characters’ emotions, and Retina on the textures and décor. “I believe we all look for something that is larger than ourselves; what is more majestic, for an insect, to peacefully gaze upon the sinking of an ocean liner? The hyper-immersive character of Léo Hoffsaes & Loto Retina’s composition, which generates powerful subconscious visions is conducive to bewilderment. This time, the emotional thunderstorm one feels upon listening seems to come from a woman about to give birth, and so much the better."

"JÉRÔME SANS — How does the idea of perpetual motion guide the development of your works? Is your art a metaphor for a world in constant evolution or revolution?
JULIO LE PARC — Politically, for the people in power, it is important that nothing changes. The order has to be preserved exactly as it is. Everything has been decided once and for all. We ourselves, however, feel that there is a need for change, that things need to undergo a transformation, a metamorphosis, for everyone."
