My take on a song thats currently haunting me – Regina Spekter’s “Genius Next Door”. Her lyrics are often enigmatic, apparently she prefers for the listener to use their imagination regarding the topic rather than giving it all away. For me, the song is sadness in duality – for the environment, and the youth of today. Please watch the video below:

    Great photo Trish! the black and white looks great. This image feels very real and like I am sitting across from your genius next door.

    PS. Great choice of music for the clip…Regina is something special:)

  • Thanks again Ben. I’ve only just discovered Regina, thanks to Simon Whittaker, and became completely addicted to her work. Right up my alley, and its given me a break from my Muse addiction :-)
