MAGNUM Blog / comparing paintings with photographs
I learned so much from painting. It’s a true inspiration! I even made few pictures as homage to Jackson Pollock.

Talking about Jackson Pollock, Seth Godin mentioned him in his post about good artists. I consider myself good and I’m not sure if that is a problem? I will get better, no doubts about it! That surely is a problem!

Galleries are really helpful in self education. Leslie Burns-dell-Acqua has some more very useful tips.

One of my favorite gallery in Slovenia is not one of posh big galleries, but is Galerija Samorastniki in Trebnje. I adore their permanent collection of naive art!

Lunatic is a new on-line magazine on contemporary photojournalism.

HERE is a link to the last issue of YVI magazine, if you missed it like I did.

During holidays I visited Fabrica.it and my favorite advertisements Wanted Creativity THIS add is fantastic!!!


I love the way Chase Jarvis is organizing his workshop. A true inspiration for our Fotopub Festival.

  3. Great stuff, thanks for the link to Magnum blog/ comparing paintings with photographs! During my studies at the Accademia di belle arti Florence I made a similar project for my photography class. Besides Jackson Pollock I included other artists from the action painting movement, it was mostly shots of thick forest, slight shake, lots of light coming through, amazing how similar it looked to Pollocks’ things, you could practicaly put photos on top of paintings… Great blog by the way, I really appreciate the technical info!
