Project “No Photos from Van Gogh”

We know that Vincent van Gogh didn’t like photography, and this also explains why there are so few photographs of him. Vincent thought that photograpghs lacked life, and much preferred painted portraits. He considered photography as being rather ‘mechanical’.
The wet plate collodion process , which this tintype was made, dates from his time.
What if?
This faded sunflowers come from the church garden in Zundert. .

Vincent’s father, Theodorus “Dorus” van Gogh, was appointed parson for the village of Zundert in 1849. He gave weekly sermons in the local church, which had been built in 1806 and was home to a small Protestant community of 114 members, 56 of them practising. Many significant events, including the Van Gogh children’s baptisms, took place in and around the church. The font used to baptise Vincent on 24 April 1853 is still inside.
