Intermission: Irwin Barbé for The Working Proof

You probably remember Irwin Barbé from a previous feature here on milkwithtea. He recently published a print for The Working Proof, which is "an online print gallery and shop with the mission of promoting both art and social responsibility through a series of limited-edition prints".

"The print is called Bleuités, and is meant to be halfway between a typical family photograph and an art picture. The word 'bleuités' comes from Arthur Rimbaud's poem Le Bateau Ivre/The Drunken Boat. It doesn't translate exactly, but in English, it means something like 'bluenesses', which works well with Irwin's print and the blue tones it captures."

To take a look go to:
