World Press Photo annual visit in Kraków.
There’s been a series of Ilona Szwarc photographs displaying girls with their American Girls Dolls. I remember reading about these photos sometime ago and look at this: Ilona’s been honored on World Press Photo!! Currently on display in Bunkier Sztuki, Krakow 🙂
American Girl Dolls website; www.americangirl.com/
The dolls are impersonation of their owners. The business around them is unbelievable; there’s Dolls hospital (mainly for body repairs but think about ear piercing, $14.. ), there’s Dolls’ Spa, you can take your doll to a hairdresser where she’ll have her hair done!
Ilona’s photos are true art photography, they speak more than words. Absolutely love it.
P.S. I now need $1,500 to purchase the photograph…
I am much impressed with Kraków’s recent efforts to bring in the big world’s art. We had a few BIG names and here it is another! The name Roberto Matta is especially close to my surrealist heart so I went to see his great works for the second time since July considering going again.. What I do not understand is why the programme around the exhibition is so poor.. aaaynyways. I ♡ MATTA
Chilean art is all about soul, colors and magic realizm – that is in their architecture, paintings, literature. One lucky day I will travel to this beautiful country.
This one has been sold for $5 M back in 2012; not on Krakow’s exhibition..
Musée du Louvre: the holy ground. Tt gives me thrives to see the most famous sculptures of all times so close and with every detail. This one is made of a beautiful marble that glitters in the sunlight. Psyche and Cupido: the beauty starts and ends just here.
Long time ago, when browsing old family photo albums Aphrodite of Milos started my fascination with art. And here she is: grand, majestic, eternal….
There it is: in one of the private owned galleries in Istanbul I found this nice looking dress..
and then I looked closer…
