I discovered the original image by accident. I was, of course, looking for something entirely different. The Port of Audierne was taken by Gustave Gain around 1900. It’s in the Brittany area being on the Goyen river, a tributary leading to the Atlantic Ocean.

I tinkered with the autochrome  by using a variety of Photoshop and Topaz tools in order to brighten the image and digitally re-work it as a painting.

Gustave Gain was born in 1876 in Cherbourg . He was a chemist and photographer who used to repeatedly exposed his autochromes. He died in 1945 in Paris.

Why a ‘conceit’ you ask? This is a nod to the fact that Gain’s photograph is ‘hidden’ within the digital painting I made of it and because I couldn’t think of a title that would differentiate it from all my other harbour and related images.
