 Mental Photography

The photographer Paul Bogaers can regularly be found at flea markets and in junk shops. Some years ago he became intrigued by the sort of picture post card that shows a landscape reflected in water. Turn the image by 90 degrees and it becomes an abstract blotch that is reminiscent of the ink blots in Rorschach tests. Although Rorschach's theories are outdated, our instinctive reaction to these images does tell us something about the psychology of looking. We can not see without assigning meaning, Bogaers notes.

Venue: Restaurant Museum Belvédère.
