Heinrich Kühn, 1908

Out of the past

Rose Clark, 1898

Not only does looking at the predecessors help to put things in perspective, refining both what really appeals to one, and indeed hones in on what one is searching for.

But I feel it as a slap across the face, not through envy but rather despair and the plain fact of the matter that in portraiture the subject is all. Of course getting the exposure, composition etc.. correct also paramount, but without that connection it is just another photo amongst the billions. The light and subtle tilt of child's head, and her eyes all create this great confrontational spirit. Having never heard of Rose Clark, and forgetting the reddened cheek it is little discoveries as these that makes a dull day all the more brighter.
