Thursday

Marie







My mindless strolls after work have paid off. Those long stops in random bookstores and libraries have introduced me to Eugene von Bruenchenhein. An American Folk artist active throughout the 1940s who took portraits of his wife Eveline "Marie" in various exotic poses, elaborate costumes and artificial botanical settings. I don't think I have ever found anything more perfect.
