Justin Bartels - Impression (2012)
I can’t not reblog this.
This is the best thing on the Internet. We undress everyday and it shows us how confined we are. Those imprints show how uncomfortable we are throughout each day just to impress other people. We create prisons in our own clothes. We are a prisoner in a socially constructed idea of what is beautiful.

Things to think about when studying:
- This is an example of what movement?
- Who were the other major figures associated with this movement? What other type of literary art was encompassed in this movement?
- What were some common themes or tropes that are prevalent in this painting and others like it?
“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”
I’ve reblogged this before and I will reblog it again.
This is so great
I started off singing in church as a child. The sound of voices coming together, that was my first moment of touching something outside of myself.
