in praise of

Margrethe Mather and Edward Weston by Imogen Cunningham

Margrethe Mather. Looking at some dearly loved black & white women photographers today. It all started this morning when I saw the sale of Picasso's 'muse' at $39.9m. Curious about the subject of this painting, I soon found that Picasso had many talented women in his life whose art was in the shadow of his celebrated own. My wanderings soon took me to the subjects of photographers and to Mather, whose work has much to celebrate.

random order

Putting everything back where it once belonged this week now that the girls are back at school and we back at work. Luckily a little bit or order goes a long way here :)
