"When you photograph people in colour ...

...you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!"

"I want to question the images that are in our memory. ...

...There is always a double level in my work; what you see is true and at the same time not true."

Link at collageart.org‏ !

Today I've got a mail from Jonathan Talbot who is the man behind collageart.org, that he linked my blog!

He has written about me: "Fabricio Schmidt calls himself a photo artist. His repertoire includes a considerable amount of collage. His works make it clear that photocollage is not necessarily photomontage."

Ohohohohohoh I'm extraordinarily lucky and happy!!! THANKS!

The page is a magnificent treasure chest of collage art!

Take a good look at collageart.org and enjoy it!

Oldschool!

Today I've digitalized the school class photo of my german great grandmother.
She was born in 1900 in Ohligs, which is today a borough of Solingen.
Because of the date of birth I think that the picture is more or less from 1910.
But I don't know which of the kids is my great grandmother:(

I love the border around the picture! Oh, this is pure unadulterated kitsch:))

"Photography is still instinctual,...

...but I am more disciplined now. I am trying to make every frame count, just as in Tai Chi every breath counts."
