Homage to Andrade

This year’s Photo España had photographic exhibitions all over Madrid, including a selection from Alécio de Andrade’s collection: “The Louvre and its visitors”.  For 39 years, Andrade captured the interaction between visitors to the Louvre and the artworks.

After seeing Andrade’s work, I went across the street to take a rest in a park and found an outdoor exhibition of photos of famous artworks –  inspired by Andrade, I caught a few images of passersby admiring the photoart, but I did wonder what it would be like doing this for another 39 years …

    I think it would be very interesting especially with some odd very unique or weird reaction that some people might have. A whole series of these wonderfully weird reactions would make for an interesting project.

    of the photos here, I love the reaction of the first two specifically – kind of a contrast study, the lady seems pretty relaxed and seems to have got some connection with the exhibit, the man in the second one seems to be trying hard to piece it out 🙂

    The last two are really cool as well – in the left one, it looks as though the old man has spotted himself in the centre of the painting, and for the last one, the question is: who is looking at who? 🙂

    Thank you both for your comments. Yes, a series of weird reactions would be quite interesting! Great idea!
    Interesting how we all like different things. I was looking at these images again, and it was the 3rd image that called my attention this time. I was wondering if the lady was just looking at the image or perhaps she was praying. We’ll never know…
