“… how a young man who never graduated from high school, never received a college degree, living in a small town in the poorest state in the nation, all the while balancing a growing family of dependents and impending financial ruin, could during the Great Depression write a series of novels all set in the same small Southern county — novels that include As I Lay Dying, Light in August, and above all, Absalom, Absalom!… ”
— William Faulkner, American writer (1897 - 1962), was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature for the year 1949

these photographs of faulkner's home feel sturdy and strong with a lot of history to me. it somehow makes sense that he could write such a amazing things with this as his surrounding. maybe it's the strength of the trees.

what an unexpectedly mundane place... in my mind, faulkner owns a palace, a mansion with 120 bedrooms and a kitchen as large as the vatikan's museum of stolen art, and here i look at the reality of his flat roofed, miserable house been eaten away by termites.

gloria mundi.

nindhárom tetszik, de az első különösen: ahogy az az "egzaktul" jelen lévő épület képes ilyen jólesően belefonódni a barnák és zöldek által kirajzolt térbe, egyszerűen mesteri.
(a másodikat a kibillenés ;) fanyarsága miatt szeretem, persze ott is megvannak a pontok és ellenpontok; gazdag terű kép)

that's something called talent, something we are born with (if we are lucky.. or unlucky, depending on your point view).'ve been visiting some famous locations lately!
