Not a lot to say here, or rather too much
So, for now, just letting the above images speak for themselves.
It's a really old book full of portrait photos from several photographers in the Netherlands, I think they're examples for how one wanted to be portrayed. I found it in our parents' house during all of the tidying-up these last few months; we have no idea where it's from, only that it travelled from my grandparents' house on my dad's side to theirs & even though I didn't quite know what I was going to do with it, I brought it back to my studio where it has been waiting patiently.
anyone in the family of their generation that might know of this?
Sometimes on the backs there are markings of the photographer?
Mystery isn't even close to a word for these....
stuff was divided, lots more collected by some service or other; my parents took a bunch of photo albums and cards my grandmother collected (I kept those too, another project;-)) plus many letters etc. I doubt my parents knew about this specific album, they never looked at the stuff again since it moved into a cupboard in their house, of that I am quite sure
there's no one left to tell us more
on the backs of the photos the names of the various photographers/studios are printed, that's why I think these are examples
they are anonymous as far as we are concerned (one is H.R.H.)
the paintwork-transformation is by me, just to be clear
they certainly feel as if 'something' has come unstuck in the process, transforming me too, come to think of it....love xx
am back to painting I guess
ask if it's for sale. I'm sure it should stay with you. You are some type of
genius to have made it.
it's not quite done and I'm holding on to it for the time being
