underwater dancer

I'm not sure where this mysteriously beautiful photo comes from..
I find it particularly evocative.It reminds me of a dream or a scene from another era
 or dimension, it takes me back to my childhood when I longed to be a classical 
ballet dancer (oh but I'm so glad I didn't go in that direction now!).
I just grew too tall and big boned to be a classical ballet dancer. Anyway, 
here she is, and her height and weight don't matter in the slightest. 
The metaphor is for 'freedom', the freedom to 
do whatever you want, and be whoever you want to be..I love it.

Paul Strand & Alfred Stieglitz

This is an unusual photograph for Paul Strand, usually his photos seem to be a take on social realism. I think here he had a a more ethereal moment perhaps..

"It is not art in the professionalized sense about which I care, but that which is created sacredly, as a result of a deep inner experience, with all of oneself, and that becomes 'art' in time."
Alfred Stieglitz

Stephen Meisel for Vogue in 2003

'Mad About You', is the name of this photograph shot by Stephen Meisel for Vogue in 2003.

It is one of those amazing timeless images which moves something other than one's aesthetic values. There's something poignant and delicate, which so suits the mood of this century so far.
