Tosca 1956

Not possible to see and not want.  Nothing zen about it.

Find the photo editor's markups, here and elsewhere, enthralling.  (Likewise the rather terrifying Callas rictus caught by photographer.)  Gray, blue, black, white, sometimes going pink or yellow.  The white-out effects are hypnotizing after a while.  Suddenly realizing how Gerhard Richter developed the weird grisaille he used in those paintings of the Baader-Meinhof gang.
