I never made a person look bad. They do that themselves. The portrait is your mirror. It’s you.

The master of expressive lighting and atmospheric illusion…Not confined to fashion, Horst excelled at portraiture, nude studies, interiors and still life photography, drawing from a wide range of sources from ancient Greek and Roman sculpture to surrealist discourse.
Now in Florida, at The Dali Museum, until Sept 6th. Do not miss it.
“Trovo che oggi molto spesso ci si preoccupi troppo di avere la macchina giusta, la pellicola giusta, il giusto obiettivo e tutti gli effetti speciali che li accompagnano, per non parlare del computer. Si trascura la cosa essenziale, che è trovare il proprio stile, procedere a tentoni per riuscire a fare finalmente le cose come si sentono”.
Thank you Mr. Ritts for sharing your feelings with us.
From Unspoken Spaces – Olafur Eliasson
I’m of the opinion that central perspective – the traditional Western model for organizing objects within our visible field has created a kind of blindness, a generalized way of seeing, an ocular numbness, if you will. It creates more disembodied eye than seeing body. I remember frequently discussing the idea of reversing central perspective at the time I was making The blind pavilion, proposing a double perspective, where the vanishing point would be in my eyes rather than on my horizon.
