Putting the Muse in Museum

Photos of museum goers inspire me.

A Fun-house Mirror in the Comic Museum in Brussels, BelgiumThere 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.
