I have got a photo book of the Canadian-German photographer Fred Herzog (1930-2019). A lot of his works concern street photographs in his home town Vancouver. Views through or reflections in windows are part of tricks. I tried to use his photos as inspiration.
Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam each have a photo museum. I saw “the world according to Roger Ballen” in the one in The Hague. Roger Ballen is an American photographic artist based in South Africa. His photos are surreal artwork, but he also combines them with sculptures, paintings and videos. This photo has nothing in common with what he does….. but it was taken in the cafe of the museum
Sometimes I ask myself how advertising works. Is somebody really tempted to buy a product exposed by such a rude, unsympathetic, insensible and brutal advertisement? What does such a campaign say about the mental attitude of the client who ordered it? And about the client who is motivated to buy the product?
