Josiane Keller - Ferris wheel and roller coaster on the beach

ホテル Hotel – on the beach

July 2, 2017

Molly is spending an awful amount of time with Elle, also at Elle’s fancy apartment, although it’s only fancy inside, where she lives everyone has a Chihuahua and lets them pee all over the place, so it reeks. Oh well. I volunteered to go pick Molly up there anyways, as the idea is to go together […]

ホテル Hotel – Uncle Karli brought everybody down and Starfish’s Herzschmerz in the museum

June 17, 2017

Since the stint with Uncle Karli something has definitely changed, although nobody wants to admit it, people are in a foul mood. The girls are afraid of being sold, and there is a lot of talk about that, because that is always the danger and around the hotel that is the history here, like it […]

Josiane Keller - Band Needs Drummer

ホテル Hotel – Starfish and Molly at the Library Cafe

April 20, 2017

Today Molly took half a day off to go out with Starfish, upon his urging, wearing a stylish new frock she got yesterday, although she made herself very clear about her priorities, which were: she is very dedicated to her career and the success or failure of it lies in only her decision-making, therefor all […]

Josiane Keller - Starfish in the dark

ホテル Hotel – Molly is gone out shopping and Starfish’s got the blues

April 19, 2017

Molly is for once not at her secret rehearsals at “Cafe Leben” but out shopping for clothes, claiming she has nothing at all to wear. (The last time I saw her room I could not help but notice a ton of her clothes being very elegant, some with a serious price-tag.) She left Starfish at home, […]

Josiane Keller - Starfish is back 27 - Chiaki kissing Starfish 3

ホテル Hotel – Starfish is coming home from the hospital

April 4, 2017

Yesterday Starfish came home from the hospital – all a man now. We took him out for a drink, that is Chiaki, Larry and ChoCho (who paid the tab), only Molly was at “Cafe Leben” rehearsing “Was wollen Sie von mir?” as pretty much all the time now, so that was a bummer for Starfish, […]

ホテル Hotel – Starfish’s sex change III

March 30, 2017

Starfish’s sex change stage III: Josiane Keller “Starfish on the operation table 6” (2017) During the operation suddenly some complications with the left upper leg happened, which delayed the whole process one additional day. We are not allowed to visit at this point, but we are all nervous, hoping everything will go OK.

Josiane Keller - Starfish in a kimono with Goebbels 9

ホテル Hotel – Starfish in a kimono with Goebbels the dog upstairs at 赤いエプロン red apron bar

January 29, 2017

Starfish is, reluctantly so, ready for a test shoot upstairs in the guest room of the red apron bar, and Goebbels came along, Goebbels for some reason has taken a liking to Starfish, seemingly the one and only person he is not biting, Starfish is not really concerned with the dog, but is OK with […]

ホテル Hotel – Molly comforting Starfish

January 18, 2017

Tonight Molly made it home a bit earlier and brought along the kimono which she will be wearing for the poster (obviously Molly will be modeling with Starfish); her kimono is not unlike the one Starfish is currently so much sulking over and based on that insight, for time being, she managed to comfort him […]

Josiane Keller - Starfish's hand in kimono sleeve

ホテル Hotel – costume test: Starfish in a kimono is looking like a girl

January 17, 2017

Once again Molly is out at rehearsals at “Cafe Leben” til late night and Starfish is in, waiting for her, watching TV, probably falling asleep over it. Apparently the poster he is to model for is a bigger deal, which means more money and that also means harder to say “no” to it, if one […]

Josiane Keller - costume fabric for Showa poster

ホテル Hotel – Molly is getting Starfish a modelling job

January 14, 2017

Possibly Molly has noticed Starfish’s devastation and tried to make the high waters smooth again. Apparently she has organized him a modelling job, it is only a one time thing, but a great opportunity, so Molly says anyways, it is in costume for a poster, Showa style, advertising a Japanese hotel. Starfish will be busy […]

ホテル Hotel – Starfish with Goebbels the dog in Chiaki’s room

January 13, 2017

A new year has begun and things are in the happening and in the making. The old year ended with a lot of confusion and worry, but life goes on, for now anyways, it does. So whilst Jan was reviewing the contract he had with Vladimir about the play, seriously trying to get out of […]

Josiane Keller - ChoCho's birthday picnic - Starfish

ホテル Hotel – birthday picnic for ChoCho in the park

September 23, 2016

So, a number of things happened. Molly had her audition, Starfish badly wanted to come along, but she insisted to go by herself. Apparently quite a number of people auditioned, and for a while she was waiting, but this week she found out she got the part and so she is officially now on a […]

Josiane Keller - Molly and Starfish by the gas stop at night 10

ホテル Hotel – night before Molly’s audition – Molly and Starfish by the gas stop at night

September 17, 2016

Tomorrow afternoon is Molly’s audition, to avoid thinking about it and driving her crazy Starfish took her out. If she gets the part, great, if not she will have to sing some very depressing songs at MIYAMOTO’s. Josiane Keller “moon and wires” (2016) Josiane Keller “Molly by the gas stop at night” (2016) Josiane Keller […]

Josiane Keller - Starfish with used jacket

ホテル Hotel – diamond earrings, an old jacket and Starfish and Chiaki get into a fight (finally!)

September 11, 2016

Hmm. The day has come. To celebrate Miss Molly’s success with the upcoming audition at “Cafe Leben” our Starfish went off and bought her diamond earrings. Personally I think it is a little too soon, because if Molly doesn’t get the part she will have to keep auditioning and who knows how often Starfish can […]

Josiane Keller - Molly's stage shoes

ホテル Hotel – Molly is going to audition at “Cafe Leben”

September 9, 2016

Rumor has it that Starfish took a couple of the shower pictures and is running through town to advertise Molly’s dancing skills with them. I am not sure if she is into that, or what people think of it. But apparently the concept worked, and Molly has an audition coming up, thanks to Starfish. The […]

ホテル Hotel – Smoking weed on Memorial Day on the graveyard

September 8, 2016

Memorial Day we took Molly to the graveyard where are some fantastic old tress to climb and somewhere in a secret corner Larry grows some weed; the graveyard is huge and Larry doesn’t tell us where, maybe Chiaki knows, but nobody cares because he supplies the people from the hotel for free with their stash. Josiane […]

ホテル Hotel – A Pizza and a Movie – Starfish is taking Molly on a date night

September 5, 2016

It’s Saturday night and after she’s done singing at Miyamoto’s Starfish is taking Molly out for a pizza and a late night movie, which is romantic and remarkable, because Starfish classically never has any money, and every penny he earns is going into his gradual sex-change, which everybody knows, so we were surprised, but nobody made […]

Josiane Keller - Molly and Starfish in the Cafe 21 - homage to Saul Leiter

ホテル Hotel – Starfish takes Molly dancing at the Cafe

August 31, 2016

With her first earned money Molly has bought a breathtaking creme coloured silk kimono with floral design. She wore it this time Western style without obi sash (we know she has…), but still looked quite extravagant, mildly put. I can hardly believe such a piece of garment can be bought with salary for just one evening […]

ホテル Hotel – eine romantische Nacht: Starfish is loosing his head over Molly and Molly keeps her shoes on – Vol. II

August 29, 2016

I said it already at the end of last post and I am not kidding: IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 17 go into the kitchen and help mom, otherwise you can stay and look. I have to repeat also this part: A; I was quite stoned when I took these of people, who […]

ホテル Hotel – eine romantische Nacht: Molly is buying stage shoes and Starfish is loosing his head over Molly – Vol. I

August 28, 2016

Friday afternoon once again we assembled in Molly’s room, “we” in this case are: Molly, Starfish (of course), Chiaki and myself. Molly had bought new shoes, “stage shoes” as she calls them, as Mr. Miyamoto had asked her to come back Saturday to sing amateur-pro night, and she insisted needing them to look “acceptable” in the […]

Josiane Keller - Starfish's shot leg 4

ホテル Hotel – the last part of the trip with Sebastiao Com’Sal and Starfish got shot in the leg

August 3, 2016

We stayed the remaining days in various parts of the jungle, which was exhausting and magnificent. The area is very rocky and finally we reached a place with massive trees and roots, where was a small emergency shelter built from flat rocks, I suppose in case an unexpected storm would come up. It was perfect […]

ホテル Hotel – Chiaki’s abortion – Part II

June 9, 2016

During the procedure I wasn’t allowed in, but right after, when Chaiki was coming round. She looked a bit groggy, but eventually sat up and the first thing she asked for was a cigarette (of course). I objected, telling her there’s no smoking in the clinic and we’d get kicked out immediately if she smoked. […]

ホテル Hotel – Chiaki’s abortion – Part I

June 7, 2016

Guys, I would love to show you the whole thing in one bit here, but I took over 200 shots of it, and it’s simply too much in one thing, because I have to modify each one of them and then upload and label and so on. So it has to be in two parts. […]

ホテル Hotel – Starfish (Anthony Sahmarani)

June 5, 2016

Starfish (aka Anthony Sahmarani), a young transsexual half way through his sex-change operation, and currently in between an ambiguous stage between woman and man, his sexual interest is directed to various people of both genders, and seems to depend on his mood of the day; he is working odd jobs, one of them being model for […]

ホテル Hotel – bathroom pictures for Pat McCrory: Starfish, ChoCho, Chiaki and Larry find an old toilet on Cooks Lane – Vol. II

May 16, 2016

The bathroom picture taking of course went further than expected, in fact I had no idea, and I’m not sure how much idea Larry and ChoCho had, anyways, so Starfish had attempted various gymnastic exercises to make the photos more interesting, or bizarre is a good word, too, and being not really sportive to that […]

ホテル Hotel – bathroom pictures for Pat McCrory: Starfish, ChoCho, Chiaki and Larry find an old toilet on Cooks Lane – Vol. I

May 13, 2016

Last evening Starfish found an old toilet sitting on the curb at Cooks Lane. Probably Vincent had put it out there, from the basement or doing up one of the rooms. It took no more than ten minutes then ChoCho, Chiaki and Larry showed up and everyone needed to be as goofy as possible, asking me […]

April 22, 2016

Same shooting, some colour pictures: Chiaki, ChoCho and Starfish hanging out at night outside in front of the hotel, on 2nd Street and Cooks Lane. At the turn of the century 100 years ago until the mid 60’s this used to be a spot for street prostitutes, and the hotel was renting rooms by the hour. […]

ホテル Hotel – Polaroids – Cooks Lane: Chiaki, ChoCho and Starfish outside at night

April 20, 2016

Starfish got paid and got himself a fabulous jacket from Victorian Expectations (the coolest outfit store around, when it comes to eccentric jackets and accessories), so no more borrowing from Chiaki, at least as long as he has it. Here some Polaroids of the people hanging out outside in front of the hotel at night: […]
