An elegant exhibition at Queens Gallery.

About a time just before the ‘yellow jackets’ of that era make their appearance.

The Outsider by Albert Camus

October 12, 2018

A great Thespian experience with The Outsider by Albert Camus at the Coronet Print Room.

I had to go back to memory, to make a short journey and to remember all these tiny moments in Meursault’s life and his realisations about the paradox of the being. Life as a prison and prison as his short life.

“I realised then that a man who had lived only one day could easily live for a hundred years in prison. He would have enough memories to keep him from being bored” — Albert Camus, The Stranger

Last chance to visit Manet: Portraying Life at Royal Academy of Arts!
