William Burroughs, 1979
Studium: There is something about this photo that I don't quite get. I am not drawn to any of the objects in a positive way, I feel very impartial to them, hence I feel disconnected from the picture.
Smoke and Veil, Paris (Vogue)
Punctum: Looking at this photo, I'm very pleased with it. The reason I enjoy looking at it is because I like the contrast between dark and light and I am immediately drawn to the darkness of her left eye and the smoke below it. I feel that people can be drawn to the intense darkness of the left side of her face, the light on her right side, and her expression is that last to see--yet also very powerful.
