The Wunderkammer of the Mild Colonial Boy, Esq., a Reactionary Tory Gentleman, who armed only with a Steampowered Babbage Engine and Pure Intentions, wanders the Time Streams and Aetheric Plane gathering an Eccentric Hodgepodge of Curiousities, Frivolities, Whimsicalities and Nonsense.
Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"?
A. Because "My Grandmother's Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning" wouldn't fit in the available space.
Freja Beha Erichsen reading with boots on books. By Paolo Roversi in “A Woman of Singular Charm” for Vogue Italia, November 2007.
Erichsen (Danish, 1987-) was discovered on the streets of her native Denmark by a modeling agent passing by in a taxi.
In 2008, casting agent James Scully said of Erichsen: ”The queen of cool. Probably one of the most-requested models of all my clients. She is the perfect old-school clothes-hanger with a little eighties androgyny thrown in.”

“I have a very mystic and spiritual approach to photography, which I can’t explain, and I don’t need to. I like to keep things unrevealed, I like sometimes to lose myself into the indefinite. That often happens to me along the path of beauty, without every truly understanding where to proceed, and the further I manage to see, the deeper the mystery becomes. Photography goes beyond the limits of reality and illusion. It brushes up against another life, another dimension, revealing not only what is there but was is not there.” — Paolo Roversi
