This is an older work, pre-dating my Nostalgia and even my Attic (I’ll come back to those later on) series. It was an assignment when I was still studying photography many a year ago. It might help to know that Nocturne was the name of the cutlery and the source of my inspiration for this. And this might very well be the start of my fascination with nostalgic stil lifes.
The original was shot on a 4×5″ negative and it takes a special place in my heart as it’s the only one I every made a colour print of myself. That print has been hanging in our kitchen for years on end. It’s also very special because it was the first time that a shot got through the judgement of my teachers from shot one. It could take me up to three months to satisfy them, but this one was a hole in one. :)
I had the negative scanned professionally years ago. It was a lot of work to clean up the scan and that’s what I just finished. So, finally, I present to you my old love: nocturne.
