Photos of museum goers inspire me.
Museum-goer in the Escher Museum in Den Haag, Holland. The place is full of opportunities to become part of multiple optical illusions!“How very Man Ray of you!” a fellow visitor to Dublin exclaims when she spots me taking this photo in the Museum of Modern Art. My friend Mikey in the FOAM Photo Museum in Amsterdam, Holland.
Door within a door, profile within a profile. I’m thinking that maybe the little glass jar should also contain a profile, a pickled profile?
Me reflected in a fun-house mirror in the Comic Museum in Brussels, Belgium.
There was a fascinating show of Stanley Kubrick photography at the Brussels Art Museum when we were in Brussels in April 2012. Although I knew of his film work I had no idea that he actually worked as a professional photographer for Look magazine, specially in a photojournalism that focussed on storytelling. I was so inspired that I started to try my own hand at this type of photography, starting with my friend as she stood entranced in front of one of the many photos in the exhibition.
