Never to be loved again

From the gallery 'To want and not to have,' which I wrote about here.

Model NYMPH (USA).

Studio: Mr.Muliebris.

Title from Samuel Beckett's translation of the poem Zone, by Guillaume Apollinaire:

...Now you walk in Paris alone among the crowd
Herd of bellowing buses hemming you about
Anguish of love parching you within
As though you were never to be loved again
If you lived in olden times you would get you to a cloister
You are ashamed when you catch yourself at a paternoster
You are your own mocker and like hellfire your laughter crackles
Golden on your life's hearth fall the sparks of your laughter
It is a picture in a dark museum hung
And sometimes you go and contemplate it long

Cooped up, locked down and moping about in baggy pyjamas and soft sweats? Comfortable maybe, but where's the romance? Mr.Muliebris and @lucy.artmodel are here to help! We break it down with a lingerie special that will get you in the mood and boost your confidence! Why, there's nothing to stop you pairing a romantic lace bralette with a those ratty PJs, but remember, brevity is the soul of lingerie. So, whether you're self-isolating solo or at home with a significant other, it's time for a date night just for yourself. [Note: "Brevity is the soul of lingerie." Often attributed to Dorothy Parker, the quote first appeared in Vogue, October 1916, Vogue Pattern Service, caption, 'From these foundations of the autumn wardrobe, one may learn that brevity is the soul of lingerie.']!

Then there is the Editorial Department;
The Literary Lights.
They are just a little holier than other people
Because they can write classics about
“‘Brevity is the soul of lingerie’, said this little chemise to itself”;
And “Here are five reasons for the success of the Broadway plays”.
They are all full of soul;
Someone is forever stepping on their temperaments.
They are constantly having nervous breakdowns
And going away for a few weeks.

-- 1919 May, Vanity Fair, Volume 11, Number 3, Section: Domestic Products, Our Office: A Hate Song: An Intimate Glimpse of Vanity Fair—En Famille by Dorothy Parker, Start Page 6, Quote Page 6 and 8, Conde Nast, New York.

An inchanted glass

A little late posting due to the short week and long Easter weekend here in New Zealand.

This is from a recent shoot in Wellington with the wonderful Lucy.Artmodel. The stairs had a beautiful piece of safety glass acting as a balustrade, which reflected the gel strobes.

The image is posted in the Mirror, Mirror gallery.

Title from a quote by Francis Bacon:

"For the mind of Man is farre from the Nature of a cleare and equall glasse, wherein the beames of things should reflect according to their true incidence; Nay, it is rather like an inchanted glasse, full of superstition and Imposture."
(Francis Bacon, 2000b, 116, quoted in Anderson M. (2015) Shakespeare: Perspectives and Words of Glass. In: The Renaissance Extended Mind. New Directions in Philosophy and Cognitive Science. Palgrave Macmillan, London. https://doi.org/10.1057/9781137412850_7)
