Jeff Powis needs to move. He is restless and that's a good thing to him. In 1987, after they worked together on the Australian movie Dead Calm, the actor Sam Neill handed him his half-read copy of Chatwin's The Songlines and said, "You'd better read this". It remains the only book that Powis has been able to sit still long enough to read cover to cover in one sitting, ironic because The Songlines is about 'the nature of human restlessness'. Pascal put it simply: 'Our nature lies in movement; complete calm is death.'
So, it seems logical that Powis' favourite pictures either have the subject in motion or the subject was made for motion. Sometimes interesting pictures happen when everything is in motion, including Powis. The picture above he took while falling down. He was riding his Harley-Davidson through Russia and the Baltic States with 12 other riders on The Freedom Tour in 1992. A rogue Lithuanian motorcycle gang met them at the Latvian-Lithuanian border. There was vodka. There were dancing girls. There was more vodka. There was a lot of falling down. The destination is always, as The Merry Pranksters put on the front of their bus, FURTHER.
