This season, men will wear shirts and women will wear dresses. The pictures are, as always, amazing. No one shoots low light like you. But the subjects are, in my opinion, a little boring. Possible movie title: “Beautiful people thinking uninteresting things.”
You make an interesting point in citing the Merchant Ivory mood. The photos I archive from your blog and from FaceHunter’s are for me a way of ‘populating’ the fictional world inhabited by the characters I am writing about – something I find very helpful and inspiring.
Blonde Girl and Blonde Guy are an English brother and sister living in Paris. Blonde Guy is a philosophy student at the Sorbonne and Blonde Girl is married to an older, rich but cold Frenchman, Black Jacket Guy, an art dealer.
Blonde Guy is in love with fellow student Black Girl, a French girl embroiled in a confusing affair with their lecturer Nun Hair Woman.
Sunglasses guy is Nun Hair Womanâ€™s son, a painter whose art dealer is Black Jacket Guy, whoâ€™s wife Blonde Wife has the hots for. But Sunglasses guy continually pursues, seduces and then dumps confused Black Girl, who consequently is also left by Nun Hair Woman. This chain of events drives her finally and happily into the arms of Blonde Guy and they move to London together.
White Shirt Guy is an American learning the art trade with Black Jacket Guy. He has the hots for Blonde Girl and watches her suffer the coldness of her husband. He decides to declare his feelings too late, finding Blonde Girl has left Black Jacket Guy and gone to Florence.
Long Hair Collar Guy is an Italian Blonde Girl meets on a train in Florence. She tells him her story and he says that when he was her age he set off to travel through America, also nursing a broken heart. There he met the real love of his life and he advises her to travel through Europe alone to find herself and open her horizons, to no longer be a wife and a blonde girl but to become who she is, then she will be ready for love.
The movie ends with Blonde Girl showing up a year later at what is now White Shirt Guyâ€™s New York dealership, ready for real love.
