A good time to leaf look. They say it is peak time right now a little further north. But some pretty nice color around here too.
Here is the angel--"I am a Camera" before I went to Cape Cod, previously shown.
I worked on her some more yesterday, in the inside studio, curtains open. :) More to do.
The novel I Am A Camera was written by Christopher Isherwood in the 30's. It was made into a play by John Van Druten and also a movie. It inspired the musical Cabaret. The first line of the novel is "I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking." In his review of the play, Walter Kerr said, "Me no Leica." Maybe that was his entire review, I dont know.
Is that the task of artists, or writers? To look, to record, not to judge?? Should our art or writing reveal our political and personal biases and druthers? Or is it our job to just present the world as it is without comment. Of course, comment can be quite subtle. What do you think? How do you view your work as writer and/ or artist?
