|Wendy Stefansson. Chalkmarks in a Rainstorm. 1997|
Early one afternoon walking through Paris, I found an image bathed in Vermeer light and spring rain:
The Girl with a Pearl Earring, re-created by a chalk artist on the pavement.
Re-created by the elements.
Re-created by me on black and white film.
Anonymous and abandoned.
