Photographer's Note

This afternoon I went to the Getty Museum in LA to check out an exhibition of works by all the greats in the history of photography. That was a dum move on a sunday. It was overcrowded so I decided to postponed the exhibit and fire a few shots myself.

On this one I get a lot of help from Julia Margaret Cameron. The face in the front is a banner promoting the exhibition. I've merely used it as foreground. Maybe this is mere exploitation of one of the past greats. However, like the contrast between the serious look of the maid from 1868 and the woman from 2004 who fix her shades while reading a gossip mag.

I hope I will not be expelled from TE due to blasphemy, hybris and copyright violations...
