Steve Klein, unsure of title

This may be a repugnant photo to some people but I love these cool ironic expressions. It almost seems like a surreal aftermath of a couple killed in a car crash and coming back as zombies. Or alternatively, the guy has just  committed a mass murder and his composed girlfriend drives him away from the scene. A regular Bonnie and Clyde.


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.

    The photograph was obviously taken before it was known that smoking was bad for one’s health. Did she get any of the class action law suit settlement?
    You are right, it is a photograph that takes one into another dimension. But for brief study, may that world stay away from mine.

      Everyone smoked back then. I have not researched how much the tobacco companies knew or when. My own grandmother died of emphysema and her twin sister had it, from chain smoking. It is like drowning and a terrible thing to get.

        I remember cigarette ads featuring “physicians ” in their whites with those metal discs strapped to their heads as they were featured in magazine ads smoking. Indoors. Today, they would have to smoke outside the hospitals. Imagine them meeting their patients on the way to surgery and their doctors asked them for lights. I believe that life expectancy has been greatly increased because of less smoking. I am sorry about your grandmother and great aunt.
        For a good look at those days, watch a Thin Man movie. People there are two-fisted; a cigarette in one hand and a martini in the other. Gin, not vodka, shaken or stirred, who cares, just hold the vermouth.

        Yes, love the whole high ball thing. Life seems more fun back then.

      Thank you, Ann! I’m not sure how I got it wrong, if I was looking at something with Nan Goldin and mistook this as being one of hers but thank you.
