knef * hildegard knef (she was great and is so underrated)

this is another experiment with doubles using graphics of the mexican engraver josé guadalupe posada. the graphics are from a book (posada - mexican engraver) i once bought in one of my favourite bookstores in barcelona (ras). first time i used this with illustrations of the childs book the jungle book (…) and promised more to come. this time i did doubles with record covers i chose out of my vinyl collection. i should add: don´t wonder about the udo jürgens disc because it´s just in my collection for other reasons than the music.
i did the 2nd layer (graphics) with a makro lens i hold in front of my camera and this is why some are out of focus. it´s pretty hard to get it done good that way and so the first layer, too seems to be out of focus which wasn´t the case. so i guess i need to buy me a good lens to do such kinda pics in a more pro way.

    It's great that you use images of José Guadalupe Posada! Have you ever been in Mexico? He was the one who first created the traditional mexican character "La Catrina" !
