Paris 1926: Les Années folles as the French called it, “The Crazy Years.” It was the Roaring Twenties. It was the dawn of the Age of Modernism, feminism, the flappers, the birth of... More > cinema; it was the decade of the automobile and radio. It was the reckless years of wealth and exuberance, where stock markets toyed with ideas of fanaticism, and where legends lived, loved, and died. Paris France was at the heart of a new cultural revolution that was reshaping and changing the world. Thomas E. McCann came to Paris to change his life. His life ended up changing everyone around him. There were parties, class privileges, there were flowing rivers of champagne, there was extravagant wealth, and everyone lived and loved like no one thought the wild celebrations of this Golden decade would ever come to an end.< Less

There was a time long ago, when wonder, beauty, and the enchantment of love ruled the human imagination. In that fabled eon of time, long forgotten- the exotic, idyllic delight of the garden... More > challenged the practicality of the city. Analogously, the beauty and frailty of flower opposed the brute power of the metal sword. Callidora is that garden of otherworldly delight, where flowers, love, and the symbolic language of beauty struggled for supremacy with the lust for power on the stage of the human experience. It is a time in our remote past, which speaks to us of the aesthetic graces of beauty, and the benevolence and ultimate reach of love. These are some of the very romantic virtues which have been smothered by time, in our pursuit of new technical age with its cold, and automated virtual communal environment. Take a journey back to the ancient past, through the eyes of Romanticism.< Less
