I'm back!

I'm home again and just sorted out the pictures of Norway. It's a beautiful country and I did see so many beautiful things: mountains, glaciers, fjords. Nature is so beautiful over there. And now I don't know what to show to you...
I'm looking forward to blog again and I hope you're all doing fine! And one last picture for you, one of my favourites because I like sheep.

blog vacation

Tomorrow morning I'm going away on holiday: to Norway! I'll be back by the end of July. In the mean time I wish you all the best and maybe you'll miss my blog just a little bit ;-)

Friday, July 6, 2012 store

I nearly finished drawing number 20 and it slowly becomes a problem to store my drawings. They have to stand up otherwise the paper will get a kink and the result is a "wave" in the paper, which you can see if you'll hang them. If I want to continue this way of working I think I have to empty the guest bedroom and turn it into a paper room...

the fisheye view

Ever heard of Lomography? Well, I didn't untill my dad came home with a lomo-camera...

In the early 1990s a couple of students discovered a small, enigmatic Russian camera, the Lomo Kompakt Automat, and created a new style of artistic experimental photography with their first unorthodoy snapshot cavortings. The approach: taking as many photographs (lomographs) as possible in the most impossible of situations possible and from the most unusual positions and then having them developed as cheaply as possible. Exhibitions, interactive projects, events and live visual performances have been the most significant forms of Lomographic communication over 12 years. The basic Lomographic idea is: be fast, don't think, be open-minded towards your enviroment, absorb everything.

You can buy the most extraordinary snapshot cameras: 4-lensed cameras, colorsplash, holga or the fisheye camera, which you can see in the first try-out photo's above.... And I must say, it's really a lot of fun. You never know what the result will be, it's a lot different then taking a picture with your digital camera.
