Mattijn

Published on February 27, 2009

Coming home to Anna’s Hoeve, originally uploaded by Mattijn. A recent flickr discovery of mine is the wonderful photo-stream of Mattijn, whose wonderful photo-montages really transcend much of the rest of what I have seen in the art form.

Getty Images apparently has a program where they are scouring flickr for images to be included in their stock catalogue. Six of my images have been invited, and I have been looking into it. I am a little concerned that, especially given the low number of images I have, and the fact that 5 are […]
