here). Don't really know whether all of the above pictures where driven from it but I think most of them are.

here. Not everything is in the vein of my selection above but you'll find maybe images more to your taste. Yes, a little relief and tonight a specific "pensée" for Chloé, a 9 years little girl kidnapped, raped and slaughtered last wednesday in Calais (more about it here) by what I would hesitate to call "a man", even monster would be too kind for him.

Don't know much about this photographer except she's born in 1987, she's polish and affectionates the ghosthic (a neologism I invent for this post) genre, not a one I appreciate above everything else (too much artificial sophistication for me) but she succeeds in some of her series to provide a strong imagery and these are some examples of these successes. She says that her pictures "are like screenshots from beautiful but cruel fairy tales". A little too much adolescent for me (I'm too old for that, life is beautiful and cruel enough not to create fairy tales to compete with it). She probably will change in the further years. Her blog here.

100 years ago, the great Billie Holiday came on earth to provide the most moving voice of the history to humanity. I'm a little pompous but how not to be so with such an artist who epitomizes the human and more specifically the female and black conditions across ages. In our subconscious, Billie Holiday images are always in black and white. It's true that most of them are but there are some in colour, of course all from the late years of the singer (the fifties). In the first ones of this post, she seems to be next to us, it's like she could be reconforted, taken in arms, kissed. Listening to her voice while looking at these images is a way to celebrate this anniversary. Below, some more as illustrations of one of the rare (and one of the best) songs she composed. Don't take notice of the stupid and vulgar text that appears on the screen.
