Photos & Beer

Less than a 10 minute walk from our hotel is the Rhine Neckar Zentrum. A huge mall-like area with everything fruit and meat stores to shoe stores. They had an exhibit going from the World Photo Press. It was amazing! How lucky am I to be living in a place where this is so common? I feel very blessed!
Some of the most moving images for me were these from a Dutch photographer, Martin Roemers. He did a story on soldiers and people from WWII in Europe (David's idea, a great one!). Beautiful, powerful images!

My new favorite beer. While in the Rhine Neckar Zentrum, we checked out a resturant called, "Le Buffet." We had an excellent meal and I found a dunkel hefe bier (dark) from Paulaner. Excellent!! (But can you find a bad beer in Germany??)

Quick question...does an american artist in Europe ever work? hehe

If there are book stores near by, see if they have a Communication Arts Aug 2006. There are some wetplate artists showcased. One we looked at in Lenswork (Robb Kendrick) but with some additional images we hadn't seen. The other is Marc Montplaisir. Very nice images. I'd be happy to scan and email if you don't get a chance to see them.

I can imagine your senses are FULL from your experiences, but are you feeling the first trickles of being "dryplated" (wet-plate-less)?

Even in this blog those images you are standing next to look awesome. Must be quite the show.

Roemers' images are very powerful - I would love to hear the stories behind the eyes of his subjects. I can't wait to see where your journies take your wetplate in Germany!
