Jaap Scheeren and Edward Steichen




I love Hans Gremmen and Jaap Scheeren's book Fake Flowers in Full Colour. It reminds me of Steichen's dye-transfer flowers, except Scheeren's attempts at putting all the separarations together went wrong - but then so did Steichen's in a different way. The book is an investigation of how wrong or otherwise the experiment went.

"We were wondering if it was possible to create a 3D-colour 
seperation. We tried to do this with a bouquet of fake flowers.
We 
made 4 still-lifes: one in Cyan, one in Magenta, one in Yellow, one 
in Black. We made photo’s of this still lifes and printed them over 
each other. In theory it would have been the start-image, but in 
practice it became “fake flowers in full colour”.


Buy the book here.

Thanks for the Memories, Gazebook Sicily!

Gazebook was fantastic! If you don't know it, it's a festival that takes place in the small town of Punta Secca on the south ...
