“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”—Fr. Alfred D’Souza”
This book is a dream come true for my eyes! I am ordering a.s.a.p. Speaking of Polaroid, I wish so badly they would start making the film again!
"The photographs featured in this book tell the story of my search for authentic beauty. It is the result of my conviction that our current ideals of beauty are increasingly being influenced by the widespread use of image retouching and manipulation. Contemporary fashion photography is seemingly obsessed with optimizing our visual environment and enhancing our physical appearance. Although there is a growing awareness of the realities of image manipulation, we still tend to perceive manipulated images through an unfiltered lens - as if they were real. I’m certainly in no position to stop this trend, nor can I deny that creating an idealized world can be exciting at times. However, I’ve come to believe that such an idealized world is only a substitute for my longing for true unadorned beauty."
