jolie laide

jolie laide

I started this when I lived in Brooklyn and struggled for grace in a city that grants moments of beauty and ugliness breathtakingly close to one another. Now I live in a place where things are a different kind of ugly and the beauty is pedestrian. I struggle with that.


I think about dissolving bicycles.

I went back and shot it again yesterday...the glass is still there, weeks later.

I wish it had been a brighter day when I first took this, what color there is would have been a bit sharper. But one of my rules is that I may not go for the same shot twice. Because I pass the same set up day after day, it would be tempting to keep shooting until it is "perfect" to me and I am just obsessive enough with visual stuff that I would.

So, the broken glass remains, and the picture is as it is.

I think about dissolving, too. I can't name a single object that I dissolve imaginatively; I think they all go, eventually.
