Nijinsky: Afternoon of a Faun
Photographs by Baron Adolph de Meyer
Thirty-three photographs by Baron Adolf de Meyer reproduced in the palladium process by Richard Benson. Benson worked directly from one of four surviving original albums to recreate this historic collaboration of Nijinsky and de Meyer. In addition to the thirty original photographs, the album contains three newly discovered de Meyer photographs. Includes comments by Diaghilev, Rodin, Jacques-ƒmile Blanche.
It is a tableau of incredible pagan sensuality. You will think you are living through a few seconds of mythology.
Faune nympharum fugientum amator–Faun, you have a passion for fleeing nymphs!
Ces nymphes, je les veus perpétuer.
