What a great idea for a project. Thanks for posting that. It has helped me with a project I am engaged on.

I just want to bring up something on the processing. I have seen a lot of this very high key processing over the last few years but it is now becoming so prevalent that it is looking like a fad. I have always liked the style but now I am starting to get bored with it. Anyone else have any thoughts on this matter?

I can only agree.
It was fun when Loretta Lux started with this in her portraits, It's a trick now, not more.
But, in abstraction of this, this are the kind of projects that I like and I have done in the past. Eventually, I will post some of the pictures. One of them is 'the proliferation of Coke machines in Flanders'

I would love to see that project. Out of interest my brother in law is from Flanders. His parents live in Ghent.

Nice, I like the lightness of the photos and the theme is certainly a familiar one.
I follow an instagram account called americaisdead that has similar content but a different visual style.

Good old Ghent.
I was born in Antwerp and moved 12 years ago to the east of Flanders.

Baie mooi

Thanks. Still I’m going, I hope to end up with a strong selection of 50. (I have to go back on multiple location to redo)

Well mell, just realized I started another thread with a link to the same photog. On the good side, I included a second link to a different photographer. So...

EDiT: Wait a minute. Ivo, you followed me! Well...

Well, it will be nice when the William Eggleston influence runs its course. And “americaisdead?” It’s getting old.

I like the high-key look in this case, though in our saturated (in terms of content) age all techniques seem in danger of turning into gimmicks. Check out Henry Wessel for an example of a photog doing high-key b&w. He's been at it since the 1970s.

Indeed; it just looks like overexposed transparencies, something that would have meant your last job for whichever client.

Maybe the intention was/is? to suggest fading away into a ghost-like state?

The structures themselves look as if they were built on a wing and a prayer, with little sense of permanency but only of the fast buck whilst the tap stays open.

As for the broader sense of loss - of interpersonal communications - then sure, I can sign for that. I remember my own late teens in Scotland, where we didn't drink alcohol in our set, but frequented an Italian café that became out of bounds after about nine at night because it attracted the harder skater crowd from the nearby rink. Speaking Italian helped a lot in various ways, but I still had to pay... ;-)

Some of us went there every lunch hour, having Cokes and crisps instead of buying schol lunches (today, they call them school dinners, for crissakes, in a wonderful example of egalitarian dumbing down). We'd go back again after school before wandering off to wherever we lived. Connie Francis and Stupid Cupid: that Bal Ami was made for those sounds. I could weep for those days.
