Spy Story by Kasia-D


Available to buy on…

Created as part of a Solo Exhibition workshop. A big thanks to Frannie and all my Solo friends who supported on the way!!!! It would never have been made without them!

I am reading a modern thriller/spy story where an inclandestine meeting takes place in a Munich art gallery. This reminded me of a visit I made way back in 2006 to the Alte Pinakothek with paintings by some of my favourite old masters like Brueghel, Tintoretto, Dürer, Rubens and Raphael.

This triptych compiles three shots taken from the top of the stairs between the two main wings. One visitor descended slowly followed by another visitor who seemed to keep several steps behind. Then two other visitors appeared and descended from the other side. Seemingly all just a coincidence….

Location: Alte Pinakothek, Munich, Bavaria, Germany
Nikon D70, Sigma 18-200mm. f/7.1, 1/40s, ISO 200.
Post-pro crop, adjustments in CS4 with NikCollection. I used PhotoShop to crop the images, add layers and filters. I also used NikCollection Viveza and ColorEfex. I created my own background layer from a small section of the criss-cross shadows in the hallway.
