The rain began Sunday night and has not stopped since. With rain drops gently hitting my windowsill and grey clouds darkening the bright morning light, it is easy to burrow deeper under my comforter and return to my lucid dreams. Late mornings, long books, and retreats into the imagination are the cure for the weather laying a damp blanket over the North East.

Odilon Redon (1840-1916), Portrait of Des Essientes from J.K. Huysmans, A Rebours

(p.s. Gallery owner, Adam Lindemann opened a show based on A Rebours and created a zine to go with it. Zine’s really need to make a come-back.)

I find portraiture in black and white to be the most effective. Stripping color from the image, highlights the minute details of the face and body that make an image enigmatic and captivating. Here are a few of my favorite portraits as of late:
