  Марк и Белла

"... Она молчит, я тоже. Она смотрит - о, ее глаза! - я тоже. Как будто мы давным-давно знакомы и она знает обо мне все: мое детство, мою теперешнюю жизнь и что со мной будет; как-будто всегда наблюдала за мной, была где-то рядом, хотя я видел ее в первый раз. И я понял: это моя жена. На бледном лице сияют глаза. Большие, выпуклые, черные! Это мои глаза, моя душа...".
Марк Шагал о своей возлюбленной, жене и музе Белле

Я жива, жива, жива,

Богом не забыта,

Молодая голова

Дрянью не забита.

Нету в голосе моем

Денежного звона —

Лучше вольным соловьем,

Чем орлом у трона.

Нет, не лучше — только так:

Соловьем, и вольным,

Чтоб на детях этот знак

В возрасте дошкольном

Восходил звездой во лбу,

Метил с малолетства.

Чудный свет на всю судьбу

Проливает детство,

Просветляя нам слова

И угрюмство быта.

Я жива, жива, жива,

Богом не забыта.

Голос чей-то и ничей

Слово к слову сложит,

И никто меня ничем

Обделить не сможет.

Не возьму чужой воды

И чужого хлеба.

Я для собственной звезды

Собственное небо.

Bar du Soleil, July 1961
‘What stripes are to tigers and peaches to cream, these sun clothes are to smart resort life: indispensable’, thought Vogue. The resort in question is Deauville, rich in sybaritic delights, whether dining, casinos or racing, and, as air travel became quicker and cheaper – just a short hop across the channel. Vogue’s sun-worshipper wears a loose sweater, slit deeply at the side, by Falconetto.

The London Look, September 1961
What could say more about early morning London life than a city gent (bowler hat, umbrella and moustache) setting off for the office? Possibly the addition of the smart new London mini-cab, introduced this month to the capital’s streets, as fast-moving as a trip round Piccadilly Circus. His companion’s swing coat is trimmed with fur and her cloche hat made of ribbed velvet, both by Cavanagh.


Summer Pleasures, June 1960
Pleasures were simple then, and it didn’t take much for an alfresco summer party to become a dance: a back garden, some paper lanterns, a record player and a rack of good discs. If you wished to push the boat further out, Vogue recommended hiring banana trees, bamboo plants, ferns and palms with which to create an ‘exotic’ look. Warming to the theme, Vogue suggested simple but flavoursome food: a hotdog stand in the garden with curry and rice, pizza, quiche lorraine. If the festivities lasted to the small hours, ‘a big dish of ham with scrambled eggs piled on top, kedgeree and kidneys grilled and encased in toasted soft rolls’ and perhaps some kipper fillets too.

Boaters, March 1954
The Spring Collections featured ‘boater’ hats in all shapes and sizes, lightweight and elegant for alfresco eating (though only British Vogue’s most soignée readers would have tackled a bistro chair with such confidence). Balmain’s colossal boater came with wheeled rings like a child’s spinning top and was worn as low as the eyebrows.

Christmas Presents, December 1953
Whatever the money spent on it, a Christmas present has to be the most beautiful, the most original or at least the most colourful, considered Vogue. Some, though, like this fabulous diamond necklace by Wartski are dependent on ‘fairy godfathers, oil wells or sheer size of bank balance’. It has certainly entranced its recipient, the more so perhaps when converted cleverly into a tiara.

Playclothes of the Western World, May 1962 
The clothes may come from places as far apart as Spain or Finland (and they do). As to where they might go: there are no limits. Not in the age of jet travel. Their stamping ground is the Mediterranean (this is the Spanish coast) but you might see them anywhere from Brighton beach to Havana.

Cottons on Holiday: Pretty Sun-Seekers, July 1956
For those possessed of ‘More Taste than Money’, as Vogue discreetly put it, summer glamour could be found inexpensively. Here, for example, perfect for sun worshipping, is a long-sleeved polka-dot cotton shirt and matching bloomers with, as a pièce de resistance, a cummerbund in a contrasting pattern, cinching the outfit at the waist.

Summer Pleasures for Sunny Days, June 1960
Entertaining is often a high point of the summer, though not every reader might have the time or inclination to dress herself and her lunch table with such elegant ease. This season’s bare arms made a larger hat almost an imperative (a small hat made one look ‘like a sightseer’). For their table, Hostesses were advised that pale linen and organdie had returned to favour, as well as uncontrived flowers and simple, classic crystal and china.

Chunky Knits, July 1965
As the Melbourne Olympics approached, Vogue flew its team the considerable distance to Australia. In Victoria, the weather is always unpredictable, so Vogue chose an all-year-round combination of colourful chunky-knitted sweaters in pink and lavender (with vivid under-collars), worn stylishly with contrasting slim-tapered slacks. All by Jaeger and perfect, said Vogue, for ‘lounging around at home or indeed abroad’.

Этого фотографа многие называют - гением предугадывания моментов. Собственно,
его философия и построена на понятии - "решающий момент". Думаю, что каждый,
кто хоть немного увлекался фотографией знает этого мастера фотожурналистики, но
не всякий читал эту статью, написанную фотографом в далеком 1952 году.

Когда видишь интересные, красивые работы автодидактов, в очередной раз понимаешь, что каждый, кто переживает об отсутствии образования - переживает зря. Без сомнения учёба облегчает поиск, позволяет быстрее увидеть общую картину мира, но знания не запрыгивают в голову как по команде: успешными в учёбе оказываются тоже только те люди, кто работает над собой, стремится приблизиться к поставленной цели, научиться необходимому. Автодидакты всего лишь сокращают путь к успеху, минуя противные высиживания за партой.


Американская девушка-фотограф Alex Prager относится к таким людям: она талантливая самоучка. Её работы пропитаны иронией к истеричной красоте голливудских актрис и жизни в Америке вообще. Алекс говорит, что начала заниматься фотографий только после 20-ти. (Сейчас ей всего 32.) Причиной внезапной любви стала выставка знаменитого американского фотографа Эглстона. (William Eggleston. Если кому-то не знакомо его имя, коротко можно представить его как человека, который первым привёл в 70-е годы в искусство цветную фотографию и объявил любую сцену из жизни достойной отпечатка. До того как занять свою нишу в искусстве, цветная фотография, да ещё "бытовая", была признаком плохого вкуса, считалась вульгарной и мещанской.)
