    The Merry Widow - Vintage Advertisement for Warner’s Girdles By Frances Pellegrini 1940's-1980's Frances' street works are intuitive, loosely handled and depict an intimacy with the city. Her images reflect an elegantly understated style and modern sensibility. "I don't crop my images or manipulate them very much, I have never consciously composed a photograph. I never thought of my photography as art. Certain things were simple. I just wanted to take a good picture."

Masquerade - Venice is Sinking, March 1

Masquerade - reminds me of As the World Falls Down: There's such a sad love Deep in your eyes. A kind of pale jewel Open and closed Within your eyes. I'll place the sky Within your eyes.

"You're thinking of a number between one and seven. My party masks helps me read minds."

For the days when you need a little help!

Photography by Felicia Simion {Part 5}

Masquerade: The masquerade style was seen as wearing something exotic and "escaping from reality." Because the mask covered the majority of the face, it was a temporary release from social restriction and signaled access to exclusive rarities. Some masks were as simple as the one we see here while others were elaborate and embroidered with beading, jewels, and intense designs.
