"I am tired of the cult of youth. The cultural rejection of old age, the stigmatization of wrinkles, grey hair, of bodies furrowed by the years. I am fascinated by Diana Vreeland, Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois, women who have let time embrace them without ever cheating. Society today condems this, me, I celebrate it. For this session of fine jewellery, I imagined a man and a woman who had been together for a long time, faithful to each other and always incandescent with desire."
Diary of A Lost Girl (1929).
- Again, a son gets a weapon from his parent, takes it to a school and shoots a hero teacher dead and wounds students and let’s hear about how we still shouldn’t do anything about this nation’s irrational obsession with guns.
Candid Lady (1) by Burt Goldblatt in 1958
