Double Vision at the Museum of Art

A couple of recent visits to local museums led to some further play with creative effects added to my photos.  The first photo, shot at Cleveland’s famous Museum of Art captured two visitors, one dozing, one walking, on the balcony surrounding the new atrium.  Shot with a Lensbaby, the sweet spot was split left and right by flipping and producing a mirror image.

This second photo was shot through a plexiglass case at the Western Reserve Historical Society’s Crawford Auto Aviation Museum.  It’s a replica of the Bendix Trophy, awarded to the winner of past transcontinental air races.  Also shot with a Lensbaby, a strong texture was added to somewhat obscure a very busy background.


About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
