I can see where you were inspired with your shot. Startling, enigmatic, frightening and fun. A bag of juxtaposing forces. Wonderful, Laura.

Laura, this makes me smile - because it is a great tribute to a great artist! But also, this week I have been doing some photo shoots using two black chairs and a carnival mask! It seems we have been thinking the same thoughts...I guess when I post some of the results, they will have to be described as MY tribute to the great artist Laura Tedeschi!

Tito said...

Ho sempre da imparare qualcosa passando dal tuo blog! Grazie Laura, per questo bellissimo post. Un abbraccio.

Leovi said...

Undoubtedly a great tribute to a great picture and full of intrigue in a mysterious atmosphere. Besos.

Máscaras, máscaras... de ilusión permitida por un lapso de tiempo en el que creemos mostrar eso que escondemos de todos y tan sólo lo hacemos de en nuestro interior...
Cuantos pintores captan ese mundo, el de las máscaras y que pocos lo interior...
Gracias por darme a conocer a estos pintores. Eres muy amable.
Un abrazo. Y gracias también por disfrutar con aquello que comparto -.-

Rachel said...

Liebe Laura,

du denkst immer auch daran, andere mit deren Kunst zu zeigen, das ist schön, so ist auch immer ein wenig Bildung dabei, die es aufzufrischen gilt, danke dafür:-)

ich umarme dich fest,
lieb, Rachel

Momo Luna said...

Great post! I just LOVE the art by Ensor. Your photograph is as great also!

Andrew Finnie said...

Ho Laura! How did I miss this? I will go and google gagah these images.

Your photo is wonderful the soft blur and the sepia all add to that strange surreal and very odd wary feeling these heads give off.

For me they are not masks, but real.
