In Varna-Bulgaria at the Black Sea I couldn’t find any books. I walked for miles. But there were some antique shops with postcards. I bought this one and had the receptionist of the hotel translating it for me. Yes, it was a love letter. From 1960 and written in Bulgarian. It formed the beginning of Notre Coeur. 20x30cm/8x12inch.
SOLD TO FRANCIS AND RICARDO
Made this one in the autumn of 2016 but forgot to place it on my site. Wooden box with inlay of scrapwood. The camera was a gift and the glass negatives belonged to my father who worked for fifty years in the Academisch Ziekenhuis Leiden (AZL). The box is covered with paper from a 19th century encyclopedia and varnished with gloss varnish.
From May 10 till June 7 2017 I made a trip in Bulgaria using public transport. Meanwhile I made handmade collages with material found in book stalls, antique stores, streets or simply got it from the walls. This is nr. 27 and the last one of the series. With parts of a calendar, children’s book and postcard from Moscow.
