Eikoh Hosoe - Man and Woman, 1959-1960
"Eikoh Hosoe (細江 英公, Hosoe Eikō, born 1933 in Yonezawa, Yamagata) is a Japanese photographer and filmmaker who emerged from the experimental arts movement of post-World War II Japan. He is known for his psychologically charged images, often exploring subjects such as death, erotic obsession, and irrationality. Through his friendships and artistic collaborations he is linked with the writer Yukio Mishima and 1960’s avant-garde artists such as the dancer Tatsumi Hijikata." [Cultura Inquieta]

Puebla Cathedral, Puebla, Mexico, 1922
This, ladies and gentlemen, is our cathedral. One of the most beautiful ones I’ve ever been to. It’s a shame regular people no longer have access to the towers :(
