The babies' heads are disembodied especially the one on the right.
...and maybe it's just me. I find some of her photographs, like this one, profoundly disturbing. I'd be very curious to chat with her about it to try to understand what she sees.
Correction: should read “try to hard to be unnoticed “ Another instance of iPad spell check interference.
Just to be clear, I wasn't referring to you in particular. It was just a general warning to others. Private investigators and divorce attorneys are allowed to take pictures in public too.
Me and my sister Marilyn, who passed away, This was how they did it 75 years ago with BW film and toning in the colors. No disembodiment. Formal shot in a studio. By the way, I didn't need permission to post it here.
I bet the perfect opportunity will present itself and you'll be able to create something beautiful for someone who will appreciate it!I spent a good deal of time and effort learning my lighting to match this style. It was a fun trip and utterly useless in my line of work but I now have another pointless skill up my sleeve. And yes, I'm sure to many of you this is such a simple thing to match. I thought the same until I tried. Turns out it's as much the film format as the lighting.
Before dismissing work that is offensive, disgusting, etc., read the classic “Powers of Horror, an Essay on Abjection” by Julia Kristeva. It brings context to that type of art.

Yesterday I met up with our local Urban Sketchers group for our weekly drawing session. Due to the weather, about 17 degrees F, we went to the public library as it provides lots of opportunities for interior subject matter as well as large windows should someone prefer to sketch what they see outside.
When I arrived I was surprised to find hundreds of kids running around the place for a “Wizardry of Harry Potter” event being held there. The event had numerous booths set up around the library where kids could do all sorts of activities like face painting, building strange animals, etc. I noticed flyers posted around encouraging picture taking and a suggestion to post them at some site.
I didn’t pay attention to whether photos were being taken as I sat down and got to my sketching which did include several children at one of the activity tables.
