Marpessa


I love this photograph by Ferdinando Scianna. I think that this young woman is one of the most gracious things I've seen since Canova's The Three Graces

ruben's graces are a bit too "supersizeme" perhaps?

What about botticelli's? I've never heard about Canova's.

Which photographers do you like best?

My favourite photographer (Among many others) is Weegee...I love journalistic photography.
