George Hoyningen-Huene, Crystal Ball, 1930


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    There was a lot of work and imagination for a seemingly simple work. Multiple lighting sources, reduction to basic elements with no distractions… She holds a future in her mind and hands.

      Yes although this photo was not done by Miller but by Hoyningen-Huene, a man, same time period, and similar to some of her photos, with photomontage, apparently.

    A seekingly simple work requiring much effort to provide the viewer the display of the creator’s imagination. Complex lighting, removal of all distractions from the presentation… The woman is holding in her hands and mind one’s future.

    Reblogged this on necltr and commented:
    See what good film and lighting without a strobe could do? Nothing automatic, good light meter and a properly working shutter on the camera required.
