Kalakala Mural in Shroud

Post by Ernst-Ulrich Schafer » Sun Oct 29, 2017 1:43 am

This mural is right outside my studio in downtown Port Angeleeeeeeees, WA It was the pride of the World's Fair in Seattle back in 1926. They were working on the roof of the old bank building that the mural is on.

And you have turned that street art into another kind of art by making such a wonderful image of it. The capture and processing gives the drapery folds and the round structure real depth and emphasizes the light the original artist tried to show. Fascinating. I'm intrigued with the whole idea of photographing existing art in a way that is artistic rather than documentary. That might deserve its own discussion post one of these days.

I had never heard of her so I looked her up. Now I am heartbroken. That mural is likely the only thing left of her but memories. She was magnificent, a sublime one-of-a-kind Art Deco apogee. She should be a museum ship. Instead she was scrapped. It's a wonderful picture you made, Ernst, but it's so sad the subject is gone. She was utterly unique.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
