Sweden, 4 August – © 2007 judith den hollander –
I made this photo in a special village on the west coast of Sweden.
She came on a special boat with a group of special people. They came for a special event, the “Sjösättning”, the launch of their new viking boat…
Please contact me, so I can send the photo of you and your friend.
To my surprise and delight I was honoured (22 June) with the Pierre Cox award 2007. A prize from the “Stedelijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten” in Hasselt, Belgium. The triptych of my grandmother – see one of three photos below – and my fine art prints were acknowledged for outstanding quality.
Call for guest photographers-bloggers. I ‘m interested in contributions with regard to documentary photography and fine art photography. Please see this new blog to see what I’m aiming for. Thanks.
I’ve been reading in Silvershotz, journal of fine art photography, and admiring the works of colleagues. Then I came across a remarkable story and stunning photos of flowers. Cyanotypes! I learned about this technique/alternative photo process at my Academy and even made a print or two. But nowhere near the quality of David’s work…
I think I still have a bottle of mixed solution somewhere in my cellar/ dark room, waiting for me to take on and explore further cyanotype printing. Must have a look…
Here are photos that I made one month ago. Portraits of seniors and 2 beautiful viking girls. Thanks to all.
More about vikings and a viking boat soon.
