reconstructions of the Holy Grail
25th reconstruction of the remains of the holy grail, 1989
porcelain, inside platinum lustre, multi-fired, multi glazed
hight: approx. 32 cm
this picture is one and the same object, 3x photographed on the same negative. (nowadays you can use Photoshop and save yourself lots of time and energy!) I tried this way of photographing together with my photographer of those days (René Gerritsen) so I would be able to show the same object in 3 different positions at the same time.
This was the time that I was getting annoyed with the fact that a picture is 2D and will never "catch" a 3D object...
