Art from Found Photographs Sadly, works get forgotten. A good eye can bring new life if one has humor, knowledge and vision. The used pictures must be either yours, from the public domain or legal rights of usage having been obtained. Be prepared to explain image sources without being defensive or mad at the moderator. This does not diminish your art, just helps with historical provenance.

Default Sven Boqvist 1962

Swedish photographer Sven Boqvist in 1962, when his interest in large format cameras got started. Here is his favourite model and love, russian ballerina Tatiana Baronova, when she visited Sweden. ( according to the story www.thepennpals.com ).

Is that a river in the b.g.?






I like that texture in contrast the the overhanging tree!

I am surprised that there's a ballerina in the woods? It's beautiful but did he also photograph her in clothes that fit in such as walking clothes or no clothes at all?
