All is Vanity

The photography of Canadian artist Ingrid Mida is on display in Toronto, beginning today. In the words of the artist:
In this photographic series suggesting the haunted gardens of Versailles, I attempt to convey the journey and emotions of grief. Inspired by the work of Cindy Sherman, Sarah Moon and Deborah Turbeville, I have used soft focus, movement and filters to evoke a terrible kind of beauty. This series of ten black and white photographs pose the question of whether beauty and death are facets of the same experience.

Dear Elena,
Thanks for mentioning my show. There was a great turnout at the opening reception. I don't know if your cousins were there. If they were, they didn't introduce themselves.
Best wishes,

Oh, dear, I told them to introduce themselves to you! They must have been feeling shy! I would have loved to have been there!
