Photographer's Note

When I saw the lady in Mostar (Bosnia and Herzogovia) selling sunflowers, I could not resist to think about Van Gogh and his sunflowers. Always have the question in my mind, how many sunflowers are there in any of his paintings? Anyone knows?

Vincent van Gogh painted his famous sunflowers after leaving his native Holland for the south of France with the dream of starting an artistic community. He began to paint sunflowers to decorate a bedroom for his friend Paul Gauguin.

These most famous of all sunflowers in art hold at their heart a simple parable about the brevity of life; they are at varying stages in the life cycle, from withered and wilting to vibrant full bloom.
The blooms in the photo represent the amateurs in TE like myself..

Vincent Van Gogh meshur ayciceklerini ulkesi Hollanda’yi birakip sanat toplumu baslatma hayaliyle guney Fransaya gittikten sonra yapmistir. Arkadasi Paul Gaugen’e bir oda dekore etmek icin ayciceklerini cizmeye baslamistir. Cizdigi ayciceklerinin hayatin genclik, olgunluk, yaslilik donemlerini ifade edecek sekilde cesitlilik gosterdigini soylemistir.Aradaki kucuk tomurcuklar da galiba TE deki benim gibi ciraklari sembolize etmekte..
