I’m a sucker for black & white photography, especially if it has a film noir quality, so I was very drawn to this portrait by Jim Ferreira.
The pretty kitty in the photo is none other than Suzanne Ramsey, aka Kitten on the Keys.
The combination of tracks on Pretty Princess Day are at once self-deprecating & accusing; both feminist & pandering to female stereotypes; both silly & wise. It’s the seemingly impossible celebration of our collective decadence.
With all of this going on, it’s a wonder Suzanne hasn’t been arrested & incarcerated. “Completely uncalled for” would be the judgment. One imagines the only reason she hasn’t served time is a plea of temporary insanity due to PMS. That, or she had a female judge. One who completely understands what it’s like to be smart, passionate & female & realizes she, we, have already served our time.
At the time of my purchase, however, I had no idea what a cheeky vixen Suzanne was.
Check out this killer photo (also by Ferreira) of her smoking (you know how that works for me!)
I’m going to picture this when I listen to the CD later tonight — after Grey’s Anatomy, of course ;)
