Our thanks to Carolina200 who surfaced this nice piece on Lindsay Brice...photo by Viggo...from the University of Georgia/Georgia Magazine.
Quote:
'I have admired Lindsay Brice's work as a photographer for a long time, and was pleased personally as well as honoured professionally that Perceval Press got the chance to publish and present her new book, SuperNatural,' says Mortensen, who served as publisher and editor. 'Several years ago, I had the good fortune to be shown some of the earlier photographic studies that make up part of Lindsay's book. I hope that her sense of accomplishment and satisfaction is as great as mine from seeing these unique images published.'

Four Tales from Perceval Still Going Strong at the Jaxon House


Categories: Gallery Shows
The Four Tales from Perceval exhibit continues at the Jaxon House Gallery in Venice until July 16. Our members are giving it rave reviews. The Lindsay Brice collection has been moved to a more prominent location in the gallery and we understand the pieces are wonderful.

The entire Perceval exhibit is stunning, and worth the trip if you can make it.

A Message from Viggo at Perceval Press

A fan's notes:

As hoped for, the 2006 World Cup has brought us glimpses of inspired athleticism, sportsmanship, drama, passion, and international fraternity. As in past World Cup events, this one has also provided examples of unethical, boorish, and generally undignified behaviour from players, coaches, referees, and fans alike. In this year's edition of the championship, moments of individual artistry, genial team play, and overall good spirits have occasionally been overshadowed by controversial officiating, gamesmanship, sour grapes, second-guessing of coaching decisions, fans brawling, and unsubstantiated claims of preferential treatment being given to the established "big" teams. All of this, to some degree, appears to be part-and-parcel of the month-long event, and nothing greatly surprising or irrevocably unpleasant seems to have taken place yet. However, Henry A. Kissinger, in an abbreviated fan's overview of recent World Cup history ("World of Wonder", 12 June international edition of Newsweek) wrote a couple of sentences that so shockingly reeked of blood and hypocrisy as to be worth noting. Referring to Argentina's win against Holland in the 1978 final, he wrote:

"The Argentine victory produced a moment of respite from the near civil war conditions and brutal official repression racking Argentina. For 48 hours, Buenos Aires celebrated with such tumultuous abandon as to hide the bitterness of the national divisions."

Coming from a man who helped sow the seeds for "the near civil war conditions and brutal official repression racking Argentina" (not to mention Chile and other nations) in the 1970s, this is thoroughly shameless. Had he written the piece from jail, where he belongs, it would have been no less shameless. Enough said.
