Incredible Mustache


Salvador DALI - La moustache, Ink on paper

If you want to listen to the voice of the maestro about his very own Perpignan train station, it's just above, straight from an old vinyl for you!

Other mustaches on Jane's Corner View, hosted by Cate this week.

Humor

Pour Martin Parr, "seul l'humour peut nous permettre de trouver le salut face à l'atrophie morale et à l'absurdité qui caractérise nos vies quotidiennes".

All photos by Martin Parr
1) Lakeside Tea Room, Southwold, Suffolk England, 1993
2) Sand bay, England, from "Common Sense", 1997
3) Horncastle, Lincolnshire England, from "Common Sense", 1998
4) Jurmula, Latvia, 1999

For Martin Parr, the moral atrophy and preposterousness of our daily lives means we can only find salvation through adopting a certain sense of humor.

If you're ready to go a step further... you shoud try this!
