Claude Cahun & Marcel Moore

Via body_impolitic, a slightly annoying article about an interesting artistic couple.

"Two eccentric step-sisters who fought their own campaign against the Nazis in Jersey left a legacy of extraordinary pictures."

I'm hoping Judi Dench will co-star in a movie about them.

You would just HATE co-starring with Judi Dench, wouldn't you?

Fucking amazing women. I'm happy I know about them now. Thanks for posting.

wow, cool. i have a vague memory of having heard of them before, but nothing like this; thanks. claude cahun's work reminds me of glck; i wonder whether she knows of her (the latter of the former, obviously, *heh*).

but yes, the article has annoying ... spikes that jumped out and poked me. i don't know who this john preston is, other than: the arts editor and television critic of the Sunday Telegraph. He has written one travel book TOUCHING THE MOON and three novels, GHOSTING, INK and THE KINGS OF THE ROUNDHOUSE. He lives in London., but i want to bitch-slap him, the little patronizing twerp.

Interesting story, thanks. I was glad he put in that about Cindy Sherman, because it's what I thought of too, but couldn't remember her name.
