Midsummer in Husby

- Eritrean twin girls celebrating Midsummer in Husby, a suburban area of Stockholm mainly inhabited by immigrants.

I didn't pose them, but upon hearing my request to take a photo, one of them rested her hand on the shoulder of the other girl, with a simple smile that appeared to me most disarming. So everything went on naturally. I was fortunate to witness this unguarded innocence. Just beautiful.

Après le cubisme

Après le cubismeAprès le cubisme by Ozenfant

Never a fan of the majority of Le Corbusier's creative works, I personally find him to be greater in articulating rhetoric than practicing architecture. But still, always powerful rhetoric, admittedly... This book is but one example, it almost reads like a manifesto for the emerging spirit of a modern man. So after I finished the book, though it didn't at once convert me to his grand visions, it certainly left me considerably charmed.
