– These paintings are individually numbered and signed by him, and all of them are unique because of the technique that he uses: he paints them with the hand and he creates the color right before putting them on the paper, and after each painting he recreates a new color so there is no repetition. Also, the balloons all have different forms, not only because they are made by hand but also because they reflect the mood that he has in that particular moment: sometimes they are smaller, bigger, and they have a lot of variety in form.
– In December 2012 he made a stop-motion video in the street in London, asking the people to hold a balloon for a minute and he photographed them and created a video. (See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOCiGMRvC3U) This video had a lot of positive feedback, so later he decided to create an other video but this time involving the people around the world. For this new video he received photos from a lot of countries and the video became very popular (see it here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfjsvVggORU). This video made him realise how differently we see every scene with the balloon, because the balloon changes the prospectives and these photos become portraits. This inspired him to start the project ‘Portraits’ in December 2013, which he ran for one year.
– Portraits became also very popular, he received thousand of photos from around the world. You can see the evolution of the project on the facebook page that he dedicated to the project: https://www.facebook.com/IMPREINTofficial and also all the photos uploaded here: http://portraitsbyimpreint.tumblr.com/
German Chancellor Angela Merkel will travel to the crash site in the French Alps, where a Germanwings Airbus 320 went down with 150 people on board.
« It’s a moment of great sorrow, » Merkel said in the wake of Germanwings Flight 4U9525 crash Tuesday morning on its way from Barcelona, Spain to Dusseldorf, Germany.
She said Germany, Spain and France are all in « deep mourning » for the victims of the disaster.
