Black and White# 14 Newton after Blake by Eduardo Paolozzi

Susan Nolen's Black and White photo of Newton After BlakeThis week’s black and white photograph is one that I took in the courtyard of the British Library. This is an amazing sculpture by the artist Eduardo Paolozzi, of Sir Isaac Newton. The original art was in a print dated 1795, by the poet and artist, William Blake.   When you stand underneath it, it feels as if the weight of the world is about to come crashing down! I love the idea of a two-dimensional Newton recreated in another century in almost Frankenstein form of solid bronze bolted together.  Black and White #14 Newton

 

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.
