Tableau Vivant

“Photography is a kind of primitive theater, a kind of Tableau Vivant, a figuration of the motionless and made-up face beneath which we see the dead.”
(Roland Barthes, Camera Lucida: Reflections on Photography)


One year have past by, since I post for the first time. I would like to thank so much all of you, for your support in my journey – Your likes, comments are much appreciated!! Thank you!

  1. Oi, Kari! Parabéns por haver completado um ano na blogosfera e que esse novo que ora se inicia seja um sucesso! Ah, adorei essa fotografia de você – tem uma vivacidade e beleza especiais 🙂

  2. I find empty seats fascinating, waiting for whomever. Perhaps it is even equal to them in the end who puts in it. Or they would prefer to remain empty? (My last empty seats I saw when I visited the Opera of Paris were condemned many empty seats and the stage was huge -.., And also empty Fantastic.)

  3. We engage in the work primarily… We rarely see the artist…to engage with them is rare…it often helps :))

  4. Congratulations on your first anniversary and thanks for allowing us to enter into your marvellous and moving inner world.

  5. Your work never fails to intrigue & spark the imagination. Your skill at using soft focus and colour to establish “a time out of time” is very acomplished and full of emotional resonances. 🙂
