7 comments on “The Rothko Photos

  1. Are these images of you or of Rothko? Are these made using Photoshop? Am I the only blogger still not using Photoshop? I love the tonal and distressed quality of these b/w images and also the ghost-like figures – perfectly echoing Rothko’s spiritual pain…

  2. John these images are of me and they are not made with Photoshop. I use several free programs.
    I did try to capture a spiritual presence echoed in Rothko’s art.

    • Just looked at your link…..powerful images. Rothko would be hard to find there or anywhere. His work was built in many layers….and each successive layer adding to the previous one creating great depth. With all those lenses/cameras etc. of yours you can do wonders in a different way. All the best, Robert

    If so Thank you and a Special Happy New Year.

    • Thanks and a Happy New Year to you Silvia. Yes we always get to celebrate a little earlier than most of the world. Hope it is a wonderful year for you and your art. Very best wishes, Robert
