Clock made of corrugated paper and still going since 30 years. Until now only 3 times AA-battery renewal.
And yes; not properly hanged (also since 30 yrs )
Photo-Graphic by ME
Funny how things work out:
In 1996 I shade few snapshots in Santa Fe on my way from Denver to Albuquerque in the USA. A few weeks ago we had a visitor from Chicago in our Studio98 in Napier, South Africa. He asked me if I had some pictures of my travels in the USA so I went in his presence behind my computer and scrolled along numerous pictures until he saw this one:
“Hey, I lived in that house on the right, long long time ago”.
And: “Can your render this photo in something more artistic as in your Photo-Graphics”
“Of course I can Keith but it may take a while”.
“No problem. I buy it”
To make a long story short. The picture (approx. 160x120cm) was printed in Chicago (the courier costs from South Africa to destinations abroad have more than doubled in a few years time) and just arrived at the client’s place in downtown Chicago. Happy client for sure.
I love to picture cows. Just look to their body language.
One of the best sold photographs from South Africa. Came in the spotlight during the UNESCO exhibition ‘The Invisible Visible’ in Oslo (Norway) in 2017/18. Since then travelling around the globe. In the USA alone over 300 prints sold (via a third party). In our own Overberg District in South Africa there is (at least) one hanging in virtually every town/village. Reason for us to stop marketing this monumental photograph within South Africa.
Photography: Herman van Bon
More prints of other work of Herman van Bon available at Studio98 along the main road in Napier, South Africa.
