Beveren (Flanders) - Mercatorhuis - part 4

by Björn Roose February. 27, 2019 540 views

Part four of this series. More about the setting in part one, and more photos in part two and three.

In this post and the following ones photos of statues made by Jan Fabre. As Peter Berckmans stated (in this PhotoBlog post): "An artist of many talents, but I like his sculptures the most, his other work is not so much my style". I wouldn't define the other things Fabre does as "talents" (although selling bullshit is a talent too), but his statues are definitely interesting.

A few of his series of hoofdstukken (literally translated that would be "head pieces", in Dutch it actually means chapters) were in the garden of the Mercatorhuis too.

Looks like some tricky stuff to shoot...I'll bet your light meter was going crazy!
Great job!
I would love to see them in silhouette!

I swear I have never ever even seen a lightmeter smile I just go for trial and error when I'm out in the open ...

I meant the one in your camera.
All NIKONS are equipped with one!
I'm sure it went NUTS, even if you weren't looking at it!

The first sculpture I thought it to be to your liking because it somehow depicts (in my opinion) a devil and you can be a" little devil"
with you sense of humor 😉. The second sculpture I don't really know or understand...why a horn for a nose? Anyway your captures are nice. I like the way you were able to capture the shadows and the light.

It's art, don't try understanding it ... smiling imp Anyway, if I'm a devil, I'm in Lucifer's league, bringing light to humanity innocent

As for that light: it was rather tricky to shoot these "head pieces". The sun was all over the place, not a cloud to be seen, and these statues are really very goldish, so the point of view was the clue (if that point of view wasn't correct, you'd see no more than a black silhouette ...)

Nah nah, I actually rarely do difficult stuff in photography. Nothing like the droplet thing you did smile
