Eilinen Georgia O’Keeffe-elokuva meni ohi, mutta sen verran sen lehdestä huomasin, että muistin taas aikeeni lukea hänestä kertovan elämänkerran. Jonkun niistä.
Alin kuva, Georgia O’Keeffe’n käsintehdyt pastelliliidut, on Annie Leibovitzia, Pilgrimage-valokuvasarjasta, jonka voit nähdä kiertueella vaikkapa Georgia O’Keeffe Museum‘ssa alkuvuodesta.
Kirja: Annie Leibovitz, Pilgrimage.
“While I was growing up, Georgia
O’Keeffe represented a big idea, a stereotypical idea, for us, as women.
But I never quite filtered it, never took her in.” When she was in New
Mexico for an award, Ms. Leibovitz visited O’Keeffe’s house in Abiquiu.
She began crying as soon as she entered O’Keeffe’s studio. “It was very
emotional. She is the real thing. She has such a bad rap. I kept going
back. The first hit I had was how little you need. She had her view. Her
bed. She made her own pastels. She had music — she loved music. She had
the best speakers! Not a lot of stuff.”
