Self-portraits of aftermath.

I am personally interested in the kind of self-portraits that show evidence of a tortuous story.

Sad but Understandable

As I was very much disappointed of not getting a tickets to Joshua Bell’s concert early this month in Carnegie Hall, even more disappointing, I missed his free concert in a subway station.

The Washington Post published an article about an experiment they did: they put Joshua Bell, one of the best violinists in the world, to play in a Washington D.C. subway station. The result, hardly anybody stoped to listen.

It is sad but understandable, I imagine the tourists at the Times Square would ask their five dollars back every time IF Francis Bacon sketches their portraits.

The Goddess

I am off to San Diego for a week for some portrait opportunity (and get away from this awful weather in New York). So here I post one of the most beautiful films from China The Goddess for your entertainment.

The Goddess (Chinese: 神女, Shennü), was a Chinese silent film released in 1934 by the United Photoplay Service. It starred the legendary Ruan Lingyu in one of her final roles, and was directed Wu Yonggang.
