Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
This is actually a homage to Marcel Duchamp’s 1200 Coal Sacks. According to Wikipedia,
Marcel Duchamp (28 July 1887 – 2 October 1968; French pronunciation: [maʁsɛl dyˈʃɑ̃]) was a French artist whose work is most often associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements. Considered by some to be one of the most important artists of the 20th century, Duchamp’s output influenced the development of post-World War I Western art. He advised modern art collectors, such as Peggy Guggenheim and other prominent figures, thereby helping to shape the tastes of Western art during this period.
The only thing I was afraid of was that one of these sacks would fall on my head while I was photographing them. Which didn’t happen… The coal sacks were made of jute, with a metal brazier and were in several dimensions.
