Museums. How do people look at art? How do they move? Is there a difference between the way they look at the beginning and at the end of the exhibition? An exercise in ICMs.
Every time we're in the east of the Netherlands, we'll drop by at Museum More (Museum for Modern Realism) to take a peek at this private collection. All 24 mm, between 1.0 - 2.0 sec @ f/8 - f/22. At the beginning and the end of the slideshow, you'll find composed images of Kasteel Ruurlo, trying my hand at the Pep Ventosa technique.

We visited the opening exhibition by Kara Walker, called A Black Hole is Everything a Star Longs to Be at Museum De Pont. Her graphical work is very difficult to catch in an interpretation, so I tried to register the industrial atmosphere of the building. A self-portrait at the end.

Great exhibition at Dordrecht Museum with paintings by Turner, Callcott, Constable, Gainsborough and of course Albert Cuyp who inspired them. To view the paintings I can only strongly recommend to visit the museum. Went there twice and made ICMs of the visitors.

What if you're fond of visiting photography exhibitions but you are on your own and extremely short-sighted? This elderly man tried to read the texts that go with the pictures and gave up after some time. Too small. From then on he scrutinised the images at just a couple of inches distance and in his notepad he wrote down the name of the artist which was in bigger print. At home he would look everything up. I can understand why he felt a bit lost.
Artist-photographer Popel Coumou (1978) plays with the most important elements of photography in her work: light, paper and the perception of reality. By lighting her collages of paper, she adds a third dimension to the paper.

'Zilte haring, rode kroot', the exhibition was called, Salty herring, red beetroot. Doesn't make much sense as I just picked out a detail for this post, the idea was to connect furniture and food.

Museum Voorlinden has this installation that allows people to walk under a (very shallow) swimming pool. It's a great effect.

Although less 'eclectic' than the Prado, this private collection of Thyssen (indeed, the manufacturer of elevators among other things) is fascinating. Moreover, the museum is a pleasant place to stay. And you are allowed to take pictures.
