Such Things As Dreams Are Made On: Long Ago and Far Away

Captured in the window of an amusement arcade in a British seaside town which, even today, remains symbolic of a time when Marilyn's beauty reigned supreme. Taken in a single shot, with no adjustments, this photograph reveals so much more than is initially perceived. The eye is rewarded, layer by layer, with a series of surrealistic images which together evoke a fondly remembered, and perhaps more innocent, time.
