Image and Icon

When viewed at a distance, unfortunately difficult to do in the long hallway where this was displayed – but the long view below will give some idea, this image by Karel Martens gives an impression of a skyscape with fluffy cumulus clouds, but it is made up of these little glyphs, like in a half-tone printed image.

Collections

One day in February 2004, out of sheer boredom, I went around the apartment with the Dimage A-1, still shooting jpegs and photographed collections of things. Occasionally, I suffer a brief twinge of nostalgia for collections of stuff, in serried ranks on the wall, but mostly I’m glad they’ve all been digitized and streamed. Only the books remain, and perhaps the CDs are moldering somewhere in a box.

The Lovely Margaret

Brooklyn, New York

The Brooklyn furniture store, back in January 2004, and mentioned in my last post, was big on screens and nets and meshes of all types. I photographed the whole family through some screen or other, directly as jpegs on the Dimage A-1.
