Beautiful Photos, Subjects keep a artistic personality, when in Black and White!
George. ( I hope it all gets translated!)
Thanks for your comment, George. (This sentence seems bizarre to me – my father who passed away when I was a child, was called ‘Georges’ too, and it’s like mailing to him now…).
Translating the titles will be extremely difficult: they refer to local Flemish quirks and to my way of looking at my environment. You have to experience yourself the Flemish way of life to fully understand, I guess. Still some of my friends, students and colleagues do get the picture, while other people won’t even look at these (to irrelevant, regarding the artistic and intellectual level of their own work…) An anonymous urban architect even got angry, because I’m keeping on posting these images. And me, while doing a serious job as a professional photographer, I’m just looking around, being astonished about all the strange things I never noticed before.
Well Flemish art has old roots in quirks, and I have to say: If I remember something from my early days, is a architecture book we used to have about the gothic cathedrals…I wish I would be opening it now, but it’s probably lost, somewhere in my homeland, where i haven’t been in 32 years…
I remember images of the Cathedrals stone Keepers, the Dragon heads, gargoyles, and so on, as indeed many of the things of our own making, are hiding in plain view, ant due to our tunnel vision, we see nothing that is not an immediate goal…quite animalistic I’d say… So Hail to those who do see the lost in plain sight!
