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.

    Just an opinion; natural, minimally posed subject with unarranged background. It seems that the woman had only lipstick for makeup, and her hair was quickly brushed or combed. The photograph could have been taken with daylight film almost directly under tungsten lighting. That is but one of many possibilities. Total realism. If someone else has other opinions, I will read them and acknowledge that I could have been wrong. There was one obvious and unforgivable mistake on the part of the photographer, however. He seems to have forgotten to ask the subject to say, “cheese.” Or, maybe, he did ask, and that was her reaction.
