I found these pictures from a gulf-region weekly magazine, They are from a short report in which it's said that actor, publisher, poet Viggo Mortensen has visited a young author in the hospital from Asia in June.

PCH Press in Malibu has a great review of the Four Tales From Perceval exhibit opening with some interesting percpectives.
Quote:
In the first section off the main gallery were the images of Mortensen. Black and white photographs of dark dreams or perceptions of life. In a rather humble statement from someone of such artistic stature and talent, there were only a few of Mortensen's works on display. But, the small room dedicated to his work dictated only a few images could be mounted well. Mortensen's photographs are humbling and a bar artists should hope to achieve themselves after thirty plus-years of photographing.

These pictures are taken from Mortensen's newest release Linger. A blurred image of a child running and playing stood out from the rest. The young boy was nearly a silhouette in the blur of grey and black. One almost wonders if the photo was of a father's empty nest syndrome with Mortensen's son graduating from high school this year. Or, maybe the picture just conveys a feeling of euphoria that is common to all humans at that age.

One of small rooms held eight of Stanley Milstein's B&W prints. The Milstein photos displayed were "Seine Fisherman," "Couple at Cathedral Bruges," "Fisherman Loire," "Chefs in Eiffel Tower," "Loire Banks, Praying," "Paris Street Scene", "Water Pump, Paris" and a very large 40x60 print of "Cooperative." "Chefs in Eiffel Tower" is a bit humorous, with a wire elevator full of chefs against the background of the metal architecture of the Eiffel Tower. "Seine Fisherman" seemed to be an early morning scene, with the fisherman spaced along the Seine River, focused on the task at hand.

The other small room displayed the color prints from Lindsay Brice of her dressed-up evocative dolls. I find the images somewhat disturbing, dolls come to life, but not like those of fairy tales.
