I look at this picture and I think of two things simultaneously: The Wizard of Oz and “Trout Mask Replica” by Captain Beefheart, one of the weirdest record albums ever made. Don’t ask my why: I cannot explain.There is at once an implied innocence of another time, overlaid with a surreal absurdity, hinting on the intrinsic madness of men.
An incredible capture, brilliant composition: the desaturation, blurring and slight grunging as image treatment is an impeccable choice. I absolutely love this picture, the more I look at it.
Her Eyes Are A Blue Million Miles from the album Clear Spot by Captain Beefheart (I couldn’t bring myself to subject the unwary to Trout Mask Replica). I think this song goes perfectly with the picture.
