Léon Herschtritt’s work is a trial for the critic. The series emerge without having to be decoded. They are obvious. A prostitute shimmies, a soldier puffs out his chest, Parisian couples smooch on benches. Today, photographers are lauded for originality. Edginess is the rule and this is not a bad thing as conformism in photography lacks nuance.

Tom Waits. Oft imitated, rarely equaled. Poet, writer, song master, musician, actor, and all around qwerky guy. I want to wake up tomorrow and be able to spout out stories with such colour and rawness. And a damn handsome scruffy boy to boot.
Adrian Brody. I loved him in The Pianist, and as Salvador Dali, in Midnight in Paris. This photo was taken by his mother, professional photographer, Sylvia Plachy.
