Kate by the Lake

By 08/12/2008No Comments

Saw a nice photograph in the National Portrait Gallery that deeply moved me: Kate by the Lake  by Spencer Murphy.  Thirty year old Murphy pictured a dark haired woman standing at the Lac de Saint-Cassien in Southern France. Black and White. No nonsense. Breathtakingly simple. Razor-sharp. The artist states he tried to illustrate the tension between man and nature, and the mythic mists around romance.  The picture sent my thoughts away to the shores of Avalon. Just thought I should share this with you. It made me smile.
