Untitled by Jacques-André Boiffard, 1930
From L’Amour fou : Photography and Surrealism (Rosalind Krauss, Jane Livingston, Dawn Ades, 1985)

"The division of the universe into subterranean hell and a perfectly pure heaven is an indelible conception, mud and darkness being the principles of evil as light and celestial space are the principles of good: with their feet in the mud but their heads somewhat approaching the light, men obstinately imagine a tide that will elevate them, never to return, into pure space. Human life entails, in fact, the rage of seeing oneself as a back and forth movement from refuse to ideal, and from the ideal to refuse - a rage that is easily directed against an organ as base as the foot.”
— Georges Bataille, The Big Toe
