All you can imagine is real

The current members of the ballot- and exhibition committees will exhibit in the Klinkenberg galleries from July 15th (opening at 16.00) up till August 13th 2023.

Myself I am participating with a diptych inspired by this photograph of Jane Morris in her later years.

Original photograph ‘Mrs. Morris and her two daughters at Kelmscott Manor’
by Carter & Co, 1905 ©The Fitzwilliam Museum.

For my diptych I have used the anthotype technique to create an afterimage of this photograph on an original cabinet card by the very same studio. I decided to present this image in the way it would have been included in a 19th century photo album, instead of tilting it.

Before I could print the image of Jane Morris I had to remove the original photograph of two anonymous girls. This albumen print was altered by me with aquarelle- and bister ink.
