I was just reading about the work of Louie Shwartzberg, a cinematographer who believes in the relevance of beauty and seduction in its usefulness in survival. We protect what we fall in love with. nature invests in the things that draws them in, like the hummingbirds and bees that pollinate the flowers they are attracted to. I also love how he talks about the savage aspect of beauty. In my own art I try to have a dark element. something a little grotesque, dark or savage.
