Â Henri Rousseau is the inspiration for our first Concept to Camera from Ann Cutting. Â When we asked Ann about her attraction to Rousseau, she opened up about her lasting fascination with the painter: Â â€œThe first time I saw a Rousseau was on a jigsaw puzzle as a kid, so I spent lots of time staring at all the details and hidden animals.â€ Â Her interest was rekindled when she saw his work in person while travelling France â€”she was inspired. Â So, she â€œ bought some books on ebay, visited many Southern California botanical gardens to gather components, and picked about 5 paintings to pay homage to. Images evolved loosely from that.â€ Â We welcome you to enjoy a few of her inspired photographic articulations of the paintings of Henri Rousseau, as well as a few paintings she used for inspiration: Â Â Henri Rousseau paintings: Â Â Â Â Ann Cutting photographs: Â  Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
