For a long time, art or rather pictures took the place of photographs, they were records of people, places and events. It seems significant that when photography had taken a little more than the first few faltering steps, artists started to move away from the literal depiction of what they saw to a more representative interpretation stripping away some of the detail but still trying to capture the essence of their subject. Thanks to the wonders of the digital age it's easy to take an average black and white photo and turn it by stages from something with detail and sharp lines to a more fluid outline yet retain the meaning and context of the view.

Quite how I'll bring this to the model has me flummoxed at the moment, but I'll be thinking about it over the weeks to come.
