i'm in love...

with these images.



Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I could care less that they're of Brad Pitt- all I care about is the fact that they're done by Chuck Close. Who just happens to be in a 3-way tie for my favorite artist. If you don't know who he is, please enlighten yourself and do a google search. He is amazing. Like the other two artists vying for the spot as favorite, seeing a picture doesn't compare to seeing the real thing. Although now that I think about it, it's a four-way tie. I'm obviously very indecisive. But they all make me cry.

Anyway, they're derrogotypes, a very early form of photography and pretty dang awesome. I hear some people don't like the pictures since you can see every pore and every blemish, but I love it.

p.s. I've been meaning to post these for a couple of months but have been slow about it.
