Val Telburg

Mr. Telburg used a lot of double exposures and depth of vision to create eerie dreamlike photos. I think he would have loved photoshop and their layers.

Val Telberg (Russian, 1910-1995)
Born in Moscow, Val Telberg lived in China, Japan, and Korea during his youth. He studied painting at the Art Student’s League, New York, in 1942, where he was exposed to the surrealism movement and experimental filmmaking. To support his painting, Telberg traveled from Florida to Massachusettes, printing photographs of nightclub patrons and working at photographic concession stands where people posed with cutouts of celebrities. In 1945, he returned to New York and produced narrative, surrealist photographs using sandwiched, bleached or burned negatives and double exposure within the camera. His later work evolved to large scale, scroll-like multiple images.





The God of Six Points

Without me knowing it one of my books has appeared on the KOBO sight. It is based on a guy I met when my kids were  young. My son must have been about 8 or 9 years old, my oldest daughter 4 and my wife pregnant. He introduced himself and told us that these were the best days of our lives. He must have been in his 70s then. Well, I saw him again the other day. In the same plaza. Looks the same. My son is celebrating his 31 birthday in August. That makes about 20 years have passed by.

I hate tattooooos. I love these paintings. I actually don’t have a tattoo. Its a birthmark. And it just looks like Baby Jesus. To Christians.(To everyone else it looks like Pee Wee Herman)

Ms. Goldstein is a talented artist. In a very odd field.
