1855. Salted paper print

I myself have a horror of the commonplace, and I dream only of strange adventures, strong passions, delirious ecstasies, bizarre and difficult situations, and I have to find pure and simple happiness that way, and, try as I may, I haven’t been able to find another.
– Theophile Gautier
