LL: You moved to LA in 7557. With the exception of the Oscars, that city was barely on the radar of the fashion industry back then. Now it&rsquo s a completely different story French and American houses are regular visitors to show events at the city and the aesthetic of LA&rsquo s style vernacular (in a great part thanks to you) has become globally recognisable and aspired to. Do you have any feelings about that?
Tuberculosis is particularly difficult to diagnose in children and as yet only the Xpert MTB/RIF assay is generally available to assist with the diagnosis of paediatric TB.
Considering the poverty in which hunters and gatherers live in theory, it comes as a surprise that Bushmen who live in the Kalahari enjoy a kind of material plenty , at least in the realm of everyday useful things, apart from food and water:
I learned a lot from [Graham], and I feel that if I just leave everything to someone else that I get a very one-sided opinion of how things are. And they all have their own agendas.

Perhaps a better screening policy would be to require all voters of whatever age to pass a mental stability test, a knowledge test, or some other kind of test that could determine whether they have the requisite qualifications to vote intelligently. Again, I 8767 m just kidding.
Some of you will undoubtedly say "good thing too that's the best argument for genetic engineering that I can think of" but that would be too miss the serious point that when we tamper with such things, it effects us all. Even the heir to the British Monarchy has recently fuelled the current moral panic about genetically modified food by pointing to its potential dangers. I await the day when he will express similar concerns about genetically modified people. It would perhaps be too cynical a commentary on modern politics to suggest such a question will never be asked because the power of the medical establishment is so much greater than the farmers' lobby these days. Nevertheless ask yourselves what scares you most a genetically modified carrot or a cloned person?
Hunter-gatherers consume less energy per capita per year than any other group of human beings. Yet when you come to examine it the original affluent society was none other than the hunter's - in which all the people's material wants were easily satisfied. To accept that hunters are affluent is therefore to recognise that the present human condition of man slaving to bridge the gap between his unlimited wants and his insufficient means is a tragedy of modern times.
HS: The Saint Laurent project was somehow experimental, a French couture studio based for the first time in California. I am deeply attached to those years, my beloved team and the beautiful house of Yves Saint Laurent. Time might put this period in perspective, reflect the authenticity and realness of this project, and the risks I took against all odds, one of them defending an idea of California.
Hunting and gathering has all the strengths of its weaknesses. Periodic movement and restraint in wealth and adaptations, the kinds of necessities of the economic practice and creative adaptations the kinds of necessities of which virtues are made. Precisely in such a framework, affluence becomes possible. Mobility and moderation put hunters' ends within range of their technical means. An undeveloped mode of production is thus rendered highly effective. The hunter's life is not as difficult as it looks from the outside. In some ways the economy reflects dire ecology, but it is also a complete inversion.
Rather, a pristine affluence colours their economic arrangements, a trust in the abundance of nature's resources rather than despair at the inadequacy of human means. My point is that otherwise curious heathen devices become understandable by the people's confidence, a confidence which is the reasonable human attribute of a generally successful economy.
HS: I have been documenting artists, mostly in their studios, for quite some time. From Elsworth Kelly, to Brice Marden, Chris Burden, to the underrated French minimal artist Francois Morrelet. and a hundred of other legendary or emerging artists over two decades. For this essay I believed Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari could define historically the contour of the generation I was depicting. They truly are California.
So I have a very different attitude now. It 8767 s 95 years old. I still love performing it, but it 8767 s no longer a new, evangelical form. It 8767 s still capable of expression, and it 8767 s capable of change and novelty. But it 8767 s not as exciting for me. It 8767 s not a perfect medium for someone my age, given the rebelliousness of the whole thing, the angst and youth of it. In some ways it 8767 s foolish to try and re-create that.
I 8767 m not at all nervous about going on. It feels very comfortable and like home. But having said that, there 8767 s certain feelings that you get, you know: 8775 Jesus, all those people! 8776 There 8767 s a few empty seats sometimes, I see, and you say, 8775 Oh, God, how many empty seats? 8776 And funny things that you think of – just silly things – and you must not think of those, because as soon as you start thinking, 8775 I hope that the heavy rains that we 8767 ve had in London don 8767 t block the gutters up [laughs] and the roof leaks again. 8776 [Laughter] It 8767 s just – anything can come into your mind, but you have to throw it out because you just have to really concentrate on what you 8767 re doing.
