I have a book I need to show you. It's a photobook from germany in 1939. It has a commercial for Leica, similar to the one attached, but the shadow in my book spells out REICH more clearly, and the shadow is cast over the globe
we should almost use it somehow at some point, the commercial in my book.

i was thinking about photography and imagery earlier and beauty and scandinavian photography is often beautiful. often to good end. i think beauty has a bad rep because its used in kitsch like 1864.. its seductive, but its also pedagogic
i was thinking of the different depictions of han herred but also the slightly different 35mm depictions of cornwall
but with beautiful photography i think more of photographs and perhaps films. i haven't watched barely any television.
one of the things i love about photography is how it can transmit calm. and that has to do with beauty. it can have a focusing, as you say pedagogic, quality, almost meditative. writing is in movement.
that's nicely put
