Some of you may know I have a Ko-Fi page where supportive fans can ‘Buy Me a Coffee’ or Tip Me (there is actually a button to do so on this blog). However, I have recently activated membership mode, therefore launching a tiered payment system that may be of interest to any ardent readers. It’s basically Patreon, but not Patreon (is Patreon preferred?). I have done so to serve as an extension of my newsletter, with the paywalled articles assisting to fund my research and enabling me to keep the Substack free, but it comes with perks. The first piece is on Dora Maar and Lee Miller. Check it out if you wish. Or not. Whatever.
“All Picasso’s portraits of me are lies. They’re all Picassos. Not one is Dora Maar.”
Happy Birthday to the brilliant Dora Maar 🖤🐚
A titan of rock photography, the great Mick Rock, has passed away. He captured so many iconic images of my favourite musicians over the years. Here of some favourites of Debbie Harry. R.I.P. Mick.
New newsletter is out! I wrote about Muriel Streeter and female Surrealist artistic solidarity. It’s free to read (for now anyway), so please sign up and share!
