Photographer's Note

"The Adventure of the Yellow Face", one of the 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories written by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is the third tale from The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. It was first published in Strand Magazine in 1894 with original illustrations by Sidney Paget.

One of Doyles's sentimental pieces, the story is remarkable in that Holmes' deduction during the course of it proves incorrect. (Nevertheless, the truth still comes out.) According to Dr. Watson:

"...where he failed it happened too often that no one else succeeded... Now and again, however, it chanced that even when he erred the truth was still discovered."

It has been remarked Doyle's sympathetic treatment of interracial marriage could be considered extraordinarily liberal because, at that time, anti-miscegenation laws were in effect in several countries. However, this is a mistake: the story is written and set in the United Kingdom, a country with no anti-miscegenation laws, though not without racial prejudice...

...too neat?... i like it this way this time -like i like to add grains sometimes-, i think it makes the scene look surreal, mysterious and even timeless somehow... or like an illustration may be;)...
