One can see how John Galliano was inspired by photographer Lillian Bassman. Both art director and fashion photographer for Bazaar between the 40's and 50's, her transcendent photography invigorated fashion.
Unfortunately, disillusioned with the art world in the 70's, she destroyed the majority of her work. A bag of negatives was found 20 years later and her photography is enjoying a resurgence today.
Some trips are like living a dream, and to leave will break the spell you are under. I think Alix of The Cherry Blossom Girl captured that feeling perfectly with this photograph of her last night in Japan.
My mother introduced me to Sarah Moon photography at a young age, and I continue to be in awe of her magic. These images are from her the now out of print book Coincidences, but I highly recommend tracking it down at your nearest library.

I'm sorry I'm blogging so late but we stayed up last night waiting for the Syracuse/Connecticut game to end. After six (SIX!) overtimes Syracuse emerged victorious.
After all the hooting and hollering I'm wanting something soothing to look at, and Be My Walking Gallery's petite paintings fit the bill.
Argentinian artist Francine Oeyen's delicate renderings of trees brings back the memories of my own childhood running through the woods. Each one is original, and you can carry her art with you in your hair, pinned to a favorite sweater, or gracing your finger.
