Yes, we are alive.

On my way to Dover Street Market in London, 
I made a pit stop at Robilant + Voena gallery 
to check out David LaChapelle's Earth Laughs in Flowers
These large Baroque style still life (photographs)
are quite something in person. 

...And much more London to come!


 “Hamatreya” (1846) by Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), 
in which flowers articulate nature’s ridicule and contempt for human arrogance
 in the pretense to dominion over earth.

"Where are these men? Asleep beneath their grounds:
And strangers, fond as they, their furrows plough.
Earth laughs in flowers, to see her boastful boys
Earth-proud, proud of the earth which is not theirs;
Who steer the plough, but cannot steer their feet,
Clear of the grave.”
