Sentinelles Catalogue is Done

video


My catalogue is done, and whilst my inadequate scanning technique ( the pages are A4 size so i can scan only one page at a time) does not do it justice I am really happy with the way it turned out!I know it's a large size but I made a video of the way the book looks , however because I did not scan everything exactly the same some of the pages do not line up like they actually do in the catalogue. Please do respect my copyright in all aspects of this work.

It was strange finally holding the final printed version in my hand- it's a risk to take- firstly there is the work to make, and there have been moments of despair in the making- are they good enough, are they conveying what I want to say- are they interesting enough, is it too boring to use the same form , am i wasting my time and money in making them- then there is the photographing, then the layout which was a whole learning curve for me, and would putting the images in the background work in the final printing, would it convey the story and finally paying the money and committing to printing. There is not a publisher who has taken the risk, just me.

A lot of if's, but if you don't do the work nothing happens, and as I have not had a lot of luck in finding " real" work ( ie what those that tick little square boxes consider to be work), you just have to keep doing the work- so if nothing else this will have been my sentinelle year. The catalogue will be for sale- but at present I am so busy finalising things for Europe for whence I depart tomorrow it will have to wait until I get back.My Sentinelles will be exhibited in Prague from 2-4 December and next year in Beaujolais.

What an interesting work and experience. So you won't have the catalogue to be sold in Prague, it'll be for next year. See you soon

Dijanne,

I continue to be awed by your work and talent and pray that eventually it will all be properly recognized and rewarded monitarily. Be assured I will want to buy a copy of your catalogue when it comes available.

After thoroughly reading my personally owned, signed copy of your catalogue I have to tell you that is is brilliant! I love the layout and the symbolism in your work is well explained. Congratulations, Dijanne. See you when you return. Best of luck with the exhibition. Jeann C

Your sentinells are too good, you have a great sense of humour, and i think you actually love colors because whenever i visits on your side every time i found a different color combination with lots of new sentinells. you articles are so informatioe and easy to understand also.
