Altpick Friday :: Ann Cutting’s Concept to Camera

by Renee Rhyner

Henri Rousseau is the inspiration for our first Concept to Camera from Ann Cutting.  When we asked Ann about her attraction to Rousseau, she opened up about her lasting fascination with the painter:  “The first time I saw a Rousseau was on a jigsaw puzzle as a kid, so I spent lots of time staring at all the details and hidden animals.”  Her interest was rekindled when she saw his work in person while travelling France –she was inspired.  So, she “ bought some books on ebay, visited many Southern California botanical gardens to gather components, and picked about 5 paintings to pay homage to. Images evolved loosely from that.”

We welcome you to enjoy a few of her inspired photographic articulations of the paintings of Henri Rousseau, as well as a few paintings she used for inspiration:
