Requiem for a Tulip - Collaboration with Johanne Brunet by 

Most of you have already seen this picture: It’s the wonderful rework that my friend Johanne Brunet did on my original tulip picture (below). I am so proud of it I just wanted to add a copy to my portfolio as well.

I would encourage you all to look at the same picture in Johanne’s portfolio, where she has very kindly described the process she worked through, to achieve this amazing result. It’s quite a tutorial!

Our inspiration for the title was the Requiem (Grande Messe des Morts – Lacrymosa) by Hector Berlioz.

Many thanks Johanne!

My Original:

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.
