Suzanne gave me a great compliment. She commented that my 'Gypsy of Pond Mansion' photographs reminded her of Grey Gardens. Thank you doll! I am a little spooked now because the 'real' film is being shot in Toronto and I didn't know that until right this second. That doc/show/upcoming film has been on my creative mind for some time now. (remember this post?)Perhaps that has been coming out in my work lately. I am so stoked to see the new movie. Based on the life stories of the eccentric aunt and first cousin of Jackie Kennedy (both named Edith Bouvier Beale aka "Big and Little Edie") raised as Park Avenue débutantes but who withdrew from New York society, taking shelter at their Long Island summer home, "Grey Gardens." As their wealth and contact with the outside world dwindled, so did their grasp on reality. They were reintroduced to the world when international tabloids learned of a health department raid on their home, and Jackie swooped in to save her relatives. You've got to watch this or this to fully understand. 3 Decades later...here's the house and there's my 'lily pond pics.'
