"...Here it is dark, for more I may not vouch." ~E. Wylie


An American living in Leicester, UK. Working on a PhD. in English Studies. This blog is a small oasis for me outside of academia, where I can post pretty things and brilliant words and memories of things past.
Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz, 1929.

When Stieglitz and O’Keeffe met in 1916, he was 52 and famous — an internationally acclaimed photographer, with an avant-garde gallery in Manhattan. She, on the other hand, was 28 and unknown. (Although she would go on to become one of America’s preeminent painters.)
"Alfred Stieglitz attached this photograph to a letter for Georgia O’Keeffe, dated July 10, 1929. Below the photograph he wrote, "I have destroyed 300 prints to-day. And much more literature. I haven’t the heart to destroy this…" (from Yale Collection of American Literature, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library)
