Marlene Dietrich – Self portrait series

A study of illusion and reality, parody, humour and humanity

I found this portrait to be beautiful, in other words, I felt the softness and sleekness of her skin. This was a woman who acted more like a man. In the fenin, I was overcome with the sense of discomfort….too dragish, but also an intensity of tragedy, loneliness, and a longing to be home. This was a reflection of a shattered mirror, a hollow vacuum to who I was, empty, dead, frightened of everyone.
