Brassaï later took up Valéry’s definition, writing on the uses of photography in Marcel Proust’s prose: “People do not see “real life” because they make no effort to illuminate it. And so their past is encumbered with countless snapshots, which remain useless because the intelligence has not developed them.”1

“Gesture” by Archy Carroll

Roses left by an unknown someone at the Acland hut near Selworthy Beacon ~  to which the writer Archy Carroll joined a volume of Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust’s
À la recherche du temps perdu.

“Whenever I’ve visited the cemetery at San Michele in Venice I’ve seen a red rose at Stravinsky’s tomb. Dhiagilev always has a ballet shoe and there is a beautiful tomb of a Russian princess which also has a red rose. Is it one person who visits constantly I wonder? These days the process might be considered an art work?

I usually take a book on my morning walk and at the moment I’m reading Proust. There is a ‘wind and weather hut’ a thousand feet up where I can sit facing the sun, and this week someone had left the roses. So I took the photo.” (Archy Carroll, January 2011)
