“To begin to understand the gorgeous fever that is consciousness, we must try to understand the senses and what they can tell us about the ravishing world we have the privilege to inhabit.” ― Diane Ackerman

imagery I love by others, with occasional original photography

Beach Before the Storm by Martin Munkácsi 1930

“He was the first. He did it first, and today the world of what is called fashion is peopled with Munkacsi’s babies, his heirs. It was my first lesson in photography, and there were many lessons after, all learned from Munkacsi, though I never met him. He brought a taste for happiness and honesty and a love of women to what was, before him, a joyless, lying art”

Richard Avedon, August, 1963
