Tele pics by Anna Lorentzson
Exhibition starts 19/3 2011.
Sometimes experimental photography just happen more or less by itself. I was playing around with a telescope trying to get a camera to work with it. When I found a old digital camera that had a small lens that could fit somehow in the telescope. The very small depth of field of the telescope combined with the ability to move the small lens around, made some strange photos.
The dreamlike quality of the pictures fascinated me and as I was lugging the telescope around in the garden I found stranger and more abstract pictures. The telescope shows it´s pictures upside down and that made it easy to keep the feel of the photos.
I could probably edit some photos in a paint software and get similar effects but if your a photographer you want it to be the real thing. Light thru lenses. So no editing in the computer I have only turned them around and trimmed them to find the best presentation. Many was good enough to show as they are.
The camera is a HP 3.2 mpix the first digital camera I bought. Not really the high resolution you can work with today but now I am happy I did not throw it away. I think I will put it among my old analog camera collection sometimes I use them to shake up my creativity.
I hope you enjoy my experiment and the exhibition.

It is soon time to move in to the house. As winter comes my studio gets colder and colder. I have a mini studio inside on wheels so i can follow the light when i paint. Sorry to say it is soon time to start using it.
Winter lots of white. Did i buy more?
I painted this while attending art school many years ago. Now it is hanging on a wall of a collector. I had to take the picture with my mobile. Explaining the quality. I painted for a while and had some really unappreciated exhibitions, well not all hated them.
This was about sixteen years ago and then i went in to media and digital art. But now i want to start painting again. That is why i called this a painters progress. Maybe i do some, we have to see.
