As to translations. I did a course during honours year. We usually read four or five different translations of the one work, and they were often very different, to the point that the meaning was often subtly changed, or even bits left out (or added?)
Just went through your whole website. I love the photography. Some of it is quite haunting. The ruined room with the noose is ominous. I did super8 in a film course at university. Ours had to be short documentaries with sound and were in colour. It's an interesting experience actually cutting film.
