15 PHOTOS OF ERNEST HEMINGWAY BEING THE ULTIMATE ALPHA MALE

Ernest Hemingway was born on this day in 1899 — if he were alive, it’d be his 115th birthday. To celebrate, we’ve wrangled up 15 photos that best illustrate his adventuresome spirit.

Happy 115th, Papa.

Back to when we went to Hemingway’s Havana spots on our honeymoon and first toyed with the idea of naming our future child after The Old Man and The Sea.

Via Gothamist:  The Amazing Arthur Tress Shares His Dark, Surreal Photographs From The 1970s

Tress spoke with children about their dreams—often nightmares that involved falling, monsters, that buried alive scenario—and would then photograph them experiencing it in a safe, staged setting.

Lift up your eyes upon
The day breaking for you.
Give birth again
To the dream.
Women, children, men,
Take it into the palms of your hands.
Mold it into the shape of your most
Private need. Sculpt it into
The image of your most public self.
Lift up your hearts.
Each new hour holds new chances
For new beginnings.

Rest in Peace, Dr. Maya Angelou
