Out of context, this photograph seems a bit odd ~ the frame for a looking glass, incongruously hung on a fabric backdrop. The verso is annotated with various numbers and prices, so my suspicion is that it was probably part of the photographic record for an estate auction or sale. I wrote my masters thesis on looking glasses, so it appealed to me ~ that and the wonderful strangeness of it.
A few quick links (not all photo related):
* Earth and Sky ~ Barbara Bosworth
* Egg and Nest (fascinating!)
* a brief chat with Helen Levitt
* and Morandi opens at the Met!
I am off again on another adventure ~ exploring familiar territory. Type to you in a week. Cheers!
