Guardians

In the art museums of Russia, women sit in the galleries and guard the collections. When you look at the paintings and sculptures, the presence of the women becomes an inherent part of viewing the artwork itself. I found the guards as intriguing to observe as the pieces they watch over. In conversation they told me how much they like being among Russia’s great art. A woman in Moscow’s State Tretyakov Gallery Museum said she often returns there on her day off to sit in front of a painting that reminds her of her childhood home. Another guard travels three hours each day to work, since at home she would just sit on her porch and complain about her illnesses, “as old women do.” She would rather be at the museum enjoying the people watching, surrounded by the history of her country.

Elegant Multilayered Paper Silhouettes (via)

London-based photographer Dan Tobin Smith, in collaboration with set designer and art director Rachel Thomas, captures the silhouetted profile of a woman in multicolored layers. The creatively dreamy works in this series titled Paper Profiles appear both illustrative and sculptural. While some may speculate that the image is digitally rendered, it is in fact made entirely by hand, as it is the creative duo’s signature style to fully construct the scene and simply photograph it.

During storms
Should not be kept around
