I wrote on my Facebook page, “If I painted it, you wouldn’t believe it”. We came across this curiosity while out driving not far from where we were staying during our second last day in Brittany. It really was a “WTF” moment. Then after the initial bewilderment of the senses one starts to question, why? Why did they build it there?

I like Anders Zorn’s nudes that he painted here in the Swedish archipelago. So I was pleased to discover someone who is just as good except that she was a photographer, Anne Brigman (1869-1950). The video quality is quite good so view in full-screen mode for best experience.
I find Vivian Maier’s work to be truly fascinating. Her life story is so surreal. And to think her photographs were found in boxes at a jumble sale, forgotten, discarded; the public only seeing her work after her death. Visit her website to see the work of a great street photographer. I can’t always sketch from real-life so I use her work to practice on. http://www.vivianmaier.com/
