George Dureau - Portraits

Fed up with Pistorius? Fed up with this performance myths (either intellectual or sportive), the only one that seems to allow "different" people to be accepted ? So, let's have a look to these wonderful portraits of "different" people, from a New Orleans artist born in 1930 (and still alive). Sensual and classic, in the Greek statues tradition they offer a fondative iconography for bodies usually never associated with such references. Shot in the 70's, 80's and 90's, they show that there's nothing new in this domain and that this century is only building on foundations from visionaries. A site about George Dureau here.
