Snapshot at Van Gogh - Edouard Vuillard

A snapshot. Popularly defined as a photograph that is shot spontaneously and quickly without any specific intent. A phenomenon, which started in 1888 when George Eastman introduced the first handy Kodak camera. The camera was warmly welcomed by 7 artists, collectively known as the Nabis group, who believed that every work of art was a transposition, a caricature and the impassioned equivalent of a sensation experienced. This was reflected in the composition of their canvas; figures looming in the foreground radically foreshortened in the background and cropped unexpectedly with skilled light and dark manipulation. Something like the content of a photograph.

The Work of Machiel Botman

The road must be straight, lined with trees at regular intervals. A country road, which immediately reminds me of France. But it might be an entirely different place altogether, one cannot tell. The photographer must have stood on that road, with his camera aimed at the vanishing point. Although it is the middle of the day, the road disappears into pitch-black darkness. The camera must have been very unsteady,causing the tree trunks to be out of focus and vague, with tree-tops flaring out wildly and no longer resembling branches or foliage in anyway. Instead, they more resemble thick smoke creeping along the ceiling. This makes the image shimmer and roar, like a hellish fire burning.
