Self "a la de Perlinghi"
last weekend we visited a lovely new photogalery called " Zebra" in Willebroek (Belgium). At the moment they have an exhibition of Jerome de Perlinghi's beautifull b&w photographs. If you are in the neighbourhood it is certainly worth a visit !!! A very friendly and enthousiastic owner gave us a personal tour. They also have a very nice studio and darkroom for rent. I got inspired and wanted to try a" de Perlinghi" style portrait. Next will be to try it with my Yashica mat 124g. That, aparently, is what the master himself uses for his fantastic portraits.
