Picasso Guitars 1912-1914

after 'guitar heroes' at the metropolitan museum,
picasso guitars at MoMA was the next logical step.
love the collages.
my favorites to draw were the
three dimensional constructions, one in
fragile cardboard and paper,
one in sheet metal

the negative scanning
proceeds. i'm really enjoying
revisiting places i photographed
before the digital age.

i went to patzcuaro during
the festivities of dia de los muertos
in 2001. i felt the need to
get away after the events of
september 11 and mexico
was a great escape.

these are mainly about texture and atmosphere.
more to come.
