When our friend Julia Zange – author of “The institution of superior girls”* — travelled to India, she met PAT. And while we have never visited the subcontinent ourselves, we’re pretty sure that PAT is probably the most avant-garde photographer down there. Raw and very zeitgeist-y. Apparently he is also a longhaired metalfreak who has spent over ten years traveling his country. So whenever you find yourself in Mumbai go by Matthieu Foss’ gallery and check out PAT’s newest works.
TISSUE LOVES ANIMALS II
Yes, and TISSUE loves a laugh as well as the work of visual artist Federico Cosci. At the moment we don’t have much information on this man of high ideals,
so let his work speak for him.
Highly recommended, too:

TISSUE LOVES ANIMALS
And so does Roeg Cohen, New York based photographer, who also submitted the great story featuring horses in T°1. Now he came up with these bunnies. A good chance for us to wish you a happy easter at last.
Romantic Roeg stood up for a short questioning:
TISSUE Magazine: Your fetish?
Roeg Cohen: I’m drawn towards people, and things that possess some darkness in their spirit – the melancholly, the twisted, or just a dark sense of humor. I like things left of center.
TISSUE Magazine: Your work?
Roeg Cohen: I don’t like to intellectualize art. I want to have a gutteral reaction. I want to look at it and feel something. That’s how I hope people will react to my pictures. Like I said in the previous question: I tend to respond to things that are melancholly. I believe that reflects in the pictures I take. Whether it be of a girl, or a horse. I want the mood to be the same.
TISSUE Magazine: Your life?
Roeg Cohen: I’m pretty simple in these regards. I want the people I care about to be happy. On the material side: A house in the country and a hound dog would put a smile on my face. Profesionally: I just want create work that people like to look at.
TISSUE Magazine: Your world?
Roeg Cohen: I believe perfection, is best acknowledged in the fleeting moments that it exists in. Perfection could never be constant. But you can strive to string together wonderful moments, and get something close to it. The best thing you can do to make the world better – and it might be cliched – but just live honestly to who you are, and to the people around you. I’m also a big believer in courtesy. Always hold a door open, and always give up your seat for a lady. It’s the little things.

MOUTH TO MOUTH
Felix Krüger is a Hamburg local phenomena. He’s pedal-to-the-metal giving it to the people straight. He’s one of those guys you can always count on. When I first saw these shots, I knew we have to show these. Constant readers will immediately know why.
