I have always believed that inspiration can't really be explained since usually it's a feeling evoked by an idea. But here are some more images that are floating around my head. Katharine Hepburn photographed by Richard Avedon. Clyde Barrow.
Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin. Not sure of the photographer. Seemed fitting to follow clyde barrow since Gainsbourg turned his and Bonnie Parkers story into a jaunty tune in Bonnie and Clyde.
I always have been fascinated by mythical sea creatures. I think this image captures pretty well why.
By a friend Anna Schoettle of bridges in Providence RI Taken By Pippa Ross, on a Holga Pippa Ross, taken by a friend. Uncertain of photographer, found this a few weeks ago in an old file and think it's a great high and low contrast. Multimedia collage by Mea Duke. 2006
Originally this blog was begun as a place to post my work and discuss things. but i let it get away from me, purchased and launched AldenHawkins.com . So now this is changing. it will be a mix of things, without limitations really. I will include visual inspiration and things which are influencing my work, and also include music and things which are capturing my attention. I hope you enjoy.
