Very lovely, it has such an antique and delicate feel to it. I also remember reading that she deliberately tore at the work to give it that effect...

She's incredible. I've always loved her work. It looks so vintage but a lot of her work is from the 80's and 90's. And she's still working today!

yes, antique and unreal...here is a nice quote: "i have an instinct for finding the odd location, the dismissed face, the eerie athmosphere, the oppressive mood...my muses are kafka, dostoyevsky, andree tarkovsky, the list is endless...i like my pictures best when there is a sense of tension, an unfinished narrative,...ambiguity... in these times aesthetic taste is dismissed as irrelevant. well, i am perverse, for that very reason iīm more drawn to it than ever. i have been described as having style, of being a mannered photographer...itīs some peopleīs quarrel with my work and othersī fascination."

Beautiful choices Anna....love Deborah Turbeville, but kinda along the same look (for their old-fashioned, antique quality) I prefer Paolo Roversi.

The book you bought sounds very, very interesting!
