Photographer William Mortensen (1897 - 1965)

It’s hard to believe, when looking at his work, that these are photographs and not etchings or photoshop manipulations. 
Mortsensen started his photographic career as a studio portraitist photographing Hollywood actors and film stills. However, he was openly dissatisfied with the “straight” procedures of the time, and instead championed a more symbolist approach to the medium under the rubric “pictorialism.” Here, Mortensen’s often bizarre and grotesque subject matter was explored through a number of special effects created by hand-altering the pictures with texture screens, abrasion-tone techniques, and other means, resulting in the incredibly romantic, painterly scenes that distinguished his work from the rest.
It was for this outright rejection of “purist” ways - which celebrated the “straight”, unadorned, print and a more documentarian style - that brought him criticism from other photographers of the modern realist movement. Specifically Ansel Adams, who dubbed him “the devil” and “the ant-christ.” Ultimately, Mortensen’s arguments led him to be “ostracised from the most authoritative canons of photographic history,” hence, there are very few mentions of him in the dominant narratives of 20th-century photography, apparently undeserving of even a footnote.

"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

Science was the term used for knowledge of boxing. So they’re saying she boxed him in a way that showed she knew how to.

What a color scheme. I would have a damn hard time deciding how to paint each section of trim on a Victorian.

OH MY GOD THIS IS BEAUTIFUL

a paint job like this requires high quality paint, a lot of patience and a fuckton of masking tape
