These two images are a before and after. The first is a scan we made of the negative, the second is the final photographic print that was modified by the photographer in the printing.
Remember, these photographs were printed by hand in a darkroom! The way in which this is printed made Jackie's skin porcelain-like and emphasized John's rugged sturdiness. Notice that some of JFK's wrinkles, Jackie's dress along the back of her shoulders, a lock of hair on her right cheek, and a strand of hair by her left cheek were removed.
By burning and dodging, the half-moon on Kennedy's left sleeve—a darkroom processing mishap—has been removed. By darkening the sleeve and lengthening it, it changed the overall contrast and highlights of the couple's hands and faces. The brightness of the whites in the image emphasize the way we might read this image—JFK directly engages us by looking at us and Jackie's look of admiration towards him is more obvious. He is steady and poised with an openness and the support of his wife. How do you feel about him as he is presented in this picture? –Shannon, photography curator, National Museum of American History

' ... embroidered with dragonflies and other murmurous summer insects ...' #Dior's divine evening ensemble is a drama of layers. An evening coat of blue-green that wraps and folds around a white pique dress of contrasting fitted and panelled sections, to form a spectacular silhouette.

Me: Hey whats up man, I was wondering if I could ask you for a favor?

LD: Hahaha, what you looking for some "trees" or something?

Me: LOL, nah man, I'm just doing a project and I was just wondering if I could take your picture?

LD: Yeah that's cool man, but just to warn you I'm not a smiler.

Mitsuko Uchida in what appears to be Issey Miyake - I saw her in concert twice, her facial expressions are legendary, they do add to the music in the most wonderful way, nothing compares to her Mozart and her Beethoven is strangely enlightened yet of the deepest sort. Love her.

Allow me to fashion-nerd out for a moment: The original fashion provocateur, Spanish couturier Cristobal Balenciaga, gets his due with the "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" retrospective opening today at the @vamuseum. His innovative approach to shape and pattern revolutionized the fashion world and remains influential today. To quote fellow designer Hubert de Givenchy, who was mentored by the Master in the 1950s: "I don't think the bible has taught me as much as Balenciaga." 📷 Elise Daniels in Balenciaga with street performers in Paris by Richard Avedon @balenciaga
