INFJ, Journalism student, something like a proto-writer and living in the wrong country.

"I know that they make a great deal of something that is supposed to sit in their heads, which they call reason. I am not altogether sure of what exactly they mean by that. But this much is certain: if I am correct in concluding from certain discourses of my master and patron that reason is nothing other than the capacity to act with consciousness, and not to play any dumb tricks, then I would not change places with any human being."
The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr, E.T.A Hoffmann

Tree of Jesse window from Chartres Cathedral, ca. 1170.
A bevy of Early Gothic stained glass, Chartres Cathedral showcases many themes which figure largely in this style: royalty, biblical stories, and, as here, the relationships between Christian figures. Old Testament patriarch Jesse precedes the eventual heroic King David. This window traces the family line further, connecting David to Christ- thus further legitimizing Christ’s divinity as an extension of a long tradition of leadership, royalty and piety.

Model reading in tree. Spring/summer Harper’s Bazaar fashion image, July 1953. Photograph by Richard Avedon.
Avedon did not conform to the standard technique of taking studio fashion photographs, where models stood emotionless and seemingly indifferent to the camera. Instead, Avedon showed models full of emotion, smiling, laughing, and, many times, in action in outdoor settings which was revolutionary at the time.
