Love is where you find it

I have not eaten the heart.
~~Ani, Papyrus: Book of the Dead

I will not eat my heart alone.
~~ Tennyson, In Memoriam

What shall we do then for food? "Shall the blessed Sun of heaven prove a micher and eat blackberries?" (Shakespeare, King Henry IV)

Life is a puzzle. Or, as Lewis Hyde wrote,

Cold winter night,
Little bugs on the firewood:
What are we to do?

I would like to know where these pictures are from. Who took them? Whose hand is the subject?
