"After the Luncheon"
by sabine7 / December 23, 2005


Photographer Neil Folberg borrows from the Impressionists the subjects that make up his series entitled The Impressionists’ Salon. However, instead of painting modern day ballerinas and bon-vivants, Folberg has used his camera. While in France, the photographer haunted the stomping grounds of Claude Monet, Edouard Manet, Berthe Morisot, Edgar Dégas, Vincent Van Gogh and Auguste Renoir, even using Morisot’s great-granddaughter to pose for a portrait, much the same way Morisot did for Manet. The photos are light and accessible, as were the originals, highlighting the timelessness of a technique considered bold and new at its inception.
