Jerome Lagarrigue

"Carwash" by Jerome Lagarrigue.

I really admire his street scenes. He brings a real beauty to the simplest everyday scenes and locations. It's not quite my typical style, and this isn't my favorite piece, but it was the only image I could find. M would love this . . .

I found Jerome Lagarrigue through his illustrations for Maya Angelou's edition of Poetry for Young People. M and I happened to focus on the illustration on the back flap (?), and it was amazing to watch Max interpret the art for himself. There was a light house and a stormy sky/sea, and Max found himself a shipwreck within the sea and that was just the beginning of his exploration and interpretation of the piece. It was a neat moment and I'd like to remember it.
