Is there any cure from Rachmaninomania?

I can't stop searching for his photos in the Internet...

I feel like I'm kind of one of those journalists that annoyed him so much, but I just can't stop!

Is there any cure?

Yes, it is.
Stop feeling like an annoying journalist and keep on searching!

Thank you, Daniel! :D

It's just I understand that even if we had only one photo of SVR, we could appreciate his music and his deeds all the same.
I can only make one single excuse - quite good collection of photos can help those who need to publish good covers for the discs, so that artists would feel that there is no need to paint ugly caricatures of SVR. And secondly these photos can help sculptors to make descent monuments. Though this is also questionable and depends much on the talent of the artist. There are many paintings of Rachmaninoff and some of them are quite poor in spite of the fact that Rachmaninoff posed for them personally :?

Apart from Daniel's solution (which is very good), I suggest you join the Rachmaninoff Society, if you have not already :D . It will not cure the symptoms, but you will find yourself in the company of similarly afflicted people. Then it will feel completely normal to be scouring the web for pictures!

Thank you! :D
I hope I will have a chance to join the Society very soon.
I've been thinking about that quite often, dreamt of the rare photos that you have there in the hidden part of the site :D
May be that is the only way to cure because once when you get as much information as you can, the thurst for information hopefully goes away
