“Time Travel” Photography by Judy Nebhut
I’m a big fan Dr. Emmett Brown‘s flux capacitator, a fictional device that makes time travel possible in the “Back to the Future” movie trilogy. Hundreds, if not thousands of films have been made along the notion of time travel, so I was fascinated to find this article regarding the Chinese film industry. Apparently they have banned production of films along the theme, citing it is disrespectful to Chinese history. Huh?
Informed by history, yet armed with a combination of amazing talent and some pretty slick tools, photographer Judy Nebhut shows nothing but respect for her subjects. Her photographs have been compared to still life paintings of 17th century Spanish artists. You should compare them to the paintings of Juan Sanchez Caton for instance, and see if you agree! You CAN see these live this weekend at the Temple Arts Festival in Nashville.

Thank you for all of your great comments. I would LOVE any artist suggestions you might have. It is a challenge to keep variety in the post and to think of something to say that may relate to them. I’m so glad to know that you too had a blog and have thoughts that could make mine better. I’ll look forward to your reply! I’m actually about to move the site to wordpress.org at which time I should have a better idea of of my actual stats….Good thoughts!
From Back to the Future to the Chinese film industry, then suddenly we’re comparing to 17th century Spanish artists, and then we’re in Nashville and somehow this relates to the (boring) photographs of Judy Nebhut! No wonder AlterEgo calls you cryptic. I would probably say unedited stream of consciousness.
But, hey, it’s your blog and you can do what you want to.
I published an art blog for a year plus, then discovered that only 10% of my friends were actually taking the 10 minutes to read it. So I didn’t renew it once I felt better, although I enjoyed writing it enormously.
To what do you attribute your success? What us your readership, or, at least the subscriber figures? I read ArtStormer avidly, even when I think you babble!
thanks, and I like YOUR work. excellent
Sven or Svengali? Sometimes I can’t figure you out! Cryptic…
…far away, across the field, tolling of the iron bell, calls the faithful to their knees, to hear his softly spoken magic spell…
