All The World's A Stage

Posted by
March (Quincy, United States) on 14 December 2008 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.

William Shakespeare

Terrific drawing on the wall, they look alive... I love their faces and their attitudes... They look outrageously... humans... Shakespearian spectators...
The shadowed silhouette is fine.

Between painting & photography, always succeeding in proposing such original sets and stories, here I can hear the audience (in its wall :), and the shadow on stage is so great... Thanks a lot for that world of yours !

Shirin Moosavi from Tehran, Iran

Suppose I were to tell you that the meaning of dreams
is not all that it seems and the ultimate truth is a lie.
And you are just a puppet who can dance on a string.
Do you feel anything?
Would you Laugh? Would you care? Would you cry?

But the meaning of life is a mystery, how can anyone disagree?
So if you are confused and don't know which way to go.
You will certainly know. From the moment we're living we die.
And if it's all a crazy game you don't want to play
Tell me what can you say.
It's a joke. It's the truth. It's a lie.
Beautiful shot. A great concept and thoughtful choice of quotation.
