"Son of Photography"

Dedicated to the real photographers of the world - to those who, with their second-hand equipment and their makeshift darkrooms, are today fighting their solitary battles with their recalcitrant medium, not for money or for glory, but because they would rather make pictures than anything else in the world.
-William Mortensen


Yes, it should be "Son of Man", the famous painting by Rene Magritte. And Yes, he should have an apple in his face, but this is more practical... I never understood the apple anyway. I do understand photography though.


I wanted to create an image reminiscent of an old b&w photograph but entirely hand drawn. I did however do some dodge and burn techniques in Photoshop with my scanned original. 
I'm sure this will need a special printing technique (Gradients maybe). Printed on a dark grey tee, yeah!

P.S. ~ I have a "Son of Man" hanging in my study and I would so hang this up right next to it if it becomes a print.

Also, because it's oddly similar, please score and comment: Eyes For You

This reminds me of the scene in the Unbearable Lightness of Being with Tereza and Sabina taking pictures of each other...

Anyways, I love Magritte, I love bowler hats, and I love Photography. I would totally buy this.
