London #6 | Master of photography Diane Arbus

This autumn, 
the American photographer is displayed in both London and Paris.

Diane Arbus, even though controversial at her time, is very well known for her
photographs of deviant and marginal people or of people 
whose normality seems ugly or surreal. Her talent was 
to picture them 
the way they look, unpretentious.

To do:
  - Visit the artist rooms collection at the Tate Modern, London, til 06 Nov. 
  - Visit the first major retrospective in France, at the Jeu de Paume, Paris, til 05 February 2012.  
Self portrait, pregnant. NYC 1945.

London #2 | Glamour of the Gods

of Hollywood portraiture 
from the industry's 'Golden Age', 
the period 
1920 to 1960, 
at the National 
Portrait Gallery. 
From Greta Garbo 
and Clark Gable 
to Audrey Hepburn, James Dean and 
Marilyn Monroe, 
it is these portraits 
that transformed 
actors and actresses into international 
style icons.

It was one of those perfect breakfasts

Sunday morning breakfast in the country a week ago.
It was quiet & peaceful (except hunters rifle shots...).
Yummy of course: Full of apple, rhubarb and raspberry jams & fresh-baked apples with mint!
Oh, and let's not forget the friends (still in bed when I took that picture ;-)
I'm telling you, it was one of those perfect breakfasts.
