the 2014 Christmas Lecture
I am a black and white person, and rather analogue.
But sometimes I want to emphasize a mood.
High noon, the small pic left.
The hound of the Baskervilles.
Sometimes my scanner does wonderful things with tiny, curled and bad developed Minox films.
Sometimes I use Picasa just for fun.
Exploring the possibilities.
Like I did, decades ago, with toxic chemicals and
strange Tetenal papers. Or "eiwitlazuurverf" (don't know how that's called in English - the dyes to colour b&w prints).
"Art" is in the maker, "Kitsch" is for critics.
I just call it technique.
