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!” exclaims a fellow visitor to the Dublin Museum of Modern Art when she spots me taking this photo.

Door within a door, profile within a profile. I’m thinking that if I were to paint this the little glass jar would 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.
