when i first saw these pictures of the holiday decorations at the galeries lafayette
in paris on the blog bardot in blue, i was A) super jealous that i was not in paris myself
to witness such a grand spectacle and B) suddenly struck by a craving for teddy grahams and
C) totally reminded of a book my mom once read me about a bear and a lonely doll.
went straight to the new york times best seller list for children's books
and was followed by 18 more. while the tales of edith, the lonely doll are said
to reflect dare wright's troubled childhood, they are also visually striking.
shot entirely in black and white and featuring ms. wright's very own childhood
doll, (whom she created a vast wardrobe for and also added hair!), these
books are still considered a true work of art.
very little is known about accomplished author/ photographer dare wright.
and looking at her beautiful pictures, one may forget the inner sadness that came
through in her work. didn't she and her doll share an eerie likeness?
