Two Dancers in RedSaturday, November 18, 2017
|Emily Molnar & Margie Gillis|
For the last few years I have been working on a little personal project in which I photograph people I know (of varied professions) wearing my mother’s red Mexican rebozo that was given to her in 1954. There have been a few stragglers that have not answered my requests that they write an essay on their feelings on wearing the rebozo. This is my only condition for putting the photograph on a blog.
These are the red shawl project blogs.
There have been quite a few people who have never written that essay and at this point I have simply gone to other projects. Here you have a portrait of two dancers, Emily Molnar and Margie Gillis which I must have taken some four years ago. Today I figured out and ancillary way of using the image in a blog.
In the NY Times I read this fascinating review of a gallery show in Mexico City’s Palacio de las Bellas Artes on the colour red. The review mentions a lovely book on the colour red by Amy Butler Greenfield that I happen to have. I wrote about it here.
With two different musicians (one a gambist the other a baroque bassist) staying as guests and also a French ballerina I have been busy cooking, etc and I have been not writing my blogs. This one simply follows this one in which I wrote about a woman in blue.
