Van Gogh inspires

"Vincent was here is a visual quest exploring the boundaries between photography and painting, two media which are closely related. Karin Borghouts has imitated the original paintings with real objects and then photographed them so accurately that her pictures look like real paintings. She has used the same compositions and colour schemes as Van Gogh. She says that although this restricted her creativity, it allowed her to concentrate on the light effects with greater artistic freedom." Laurent de Hemptinne, COLLECT
