Marsha Tudor's workflow

[Marsha|http://www.scannography.org/artists/Tudor-Marsha.html is participating on our site since a long time (well not that long as I created the site in april 2008).

She is now proposing a page where she explains her way of working. She gives lots of details, so this is an interesting page for newcomers to our media. It is also interesting as it allows to compare our own technics with hers. Don't miss it…

How many amongst us have managed to find a publisher ?

After a chat with Patri, I was just wondering if publishers, somewhere in this amazing world have had the courage to publish a book about scannography. I see that sometimes books use scannography for their image content (more and more when flowers or plants are concerned). I also see that sometimes books about new technics of capturing images or processing images, have a chapter that gives a place to our technic. But how many books are now devoted to scannography.
Being in France, I may miss lots of things that happen in the rest of the world, so if you can share your knowledge.
By the way, we have a page called "bibliography" on the site and it may need an update.

So please send me whatever book you know that is a real scannography book…

A site from Ankara

A strange site I received infos about.

"This is Serkan Isin, i am the editor of www.poetikhars.com and subsites that are dedicated to visual poetry scene since 2005. We are following your site with interest and like you to know about ourexperiments about scanner and visual poetry, you can visit www.poetikhars.com/camera."

Of course I can't read the pages from this site because I don't read turkish. Sorry about it but well… I know some amongst you can. But the page with the images shows some nice black and white researches. Maybe that can give ideas to some of you. Lots of things and I don't know what part the scanner exactly takes in them. But I wanted to share.

Make comments if you have infos.

Algis Kemezys and his Preraphaelite flowers…

Our new artist on scannography.org, Algis kemezys, is well-known photographer who creates scannographies since years now.He explain his work :
"I called them PreRaphaelite because they follow the "rules" of those mid-nineteenth century poets and painters. They have unconventional compositions (unlike any flower arrangements I have ever seen in photos or paintings); there are pyramidal groupings (stacking); there is of necessity more light on one side of the image than the other, causing an unnatural depiction of the subjects; and there is absolutely a great emphasis on shadow and tone to let the colours fend for themselves and work within the structure of the image."

His images are colored in a very special way, like no other. The strange emanations coming out and slipping through the images, give a sense of weirdness and a strength to Algis's creations. If you want to know more about this artist, he gives a lot of informations on his own blog.

These are incredible images, with perfect harmonies of colors, compositions and forms… I advice everyone to take a look at them, this is technically perfect and has a very special and very own mood in it. A whole complete and personal universe…

A discussion forum for us, scannographers

A forum where we can share ideas in a simple way… Wasn't that what we all were waiting for? This is due to Pierre Jarlan, he did the big work, and made this possible. I wouldn't even thought that was realisable for me. Pierre isn't only a unique person and scannographer, he is also a good user and creator of websites, and above all an excellent photographer. So I advice you all to take a look at his own website, it's full of nformations and superb pictures. So he did the forum for us all, thank him for that.

I hope you will all try the forum out. All your ideas you sent to me, please rewrite them on the forum, so everyone can react and read and share, and answer. All the news you can bring for the exhibition will be welcomed here…

Flowers, vegetables and humor

The second artist of september is named Al Gabor, a development research analyst.

His passion for gardening and photography has lead him to scannography. This seems to be a very common way amongst us, scannographers ! Al Gabor plays with colors and forms but also with humor and sensuality !
A classic scannographer but his images are beautiful and a pleasure for the eyes ! You can discover more of these on his own site.
