New Smoke Photography – gift ideas?

I have updated my smoke photography gallery, and have also split it up in two: ‘smoke’ and ‘smoke and mirrors’. Images in the latter gallery are symmetric due to the mirroring of the original picture upon itself.All of the smoke images can be purchased and delivered to your address. Metallic paper works really well for the smoke pictures, but I can now also offer acrylic prints and canvas prints, or even on metal. Could be just the right gift for […]

Still about 70 buildings remain, as well as part of the factory.. the place is quite surreal, but really worth the detour! There is some (french-language […]

Kain in concert for St-Jean in Repentigny

St-Jean again.. Quebec’s national holiday. It always goes hand in hand with celebrations and of course: music! In 2007 I posted about the concert with Karine St-Marie, and this year I went to see Kain.. Being relatively new to Quebec, I hadn’t heard from the band before seeing them that day, and I was pleasantly surprised, the show was excellent, great songs, great music and atmosphere and it reminded me why I really like good live concerts. Here are some […]

Smoke art as Homage to Rene Magritte, by Stoffel De Roover

For those of you who don’t know Rene Magritte, he was a famous Belgian surrealist painter (1898-1967) with his most known works showing illusions, things that are not what they seem. The bowler hat should look familiar, and also the picture of the pipe with the inscription ‘Ceci n’est pas une pipe’ (This is not a pipe), referring to the fact that is not a pipe, just a depiction of a pipe. Working on a smoke picture of my last […]
