Black Eyes and Lemonade



Was extremely excited to finally get down to 'Black Eyes and Lemonade' at the Whitechapel gallery today (it has only been open a week but all the same...) - a lot smaller than I had hoped but a delight none the less - with interesting correspondence about the organisation of the original 1951 exhibition, the original drafts for the iconic advertising poster, a selection of Barbara Jone's illustrated books, very few items from the original show ( but including a fireplace shaped like an airedale terrier = brilliant!) and lots of photos of the original show - which made me all the more envious that I was born far too late to have been lucky enough to go! Although small I would highly recommend to any Barbara Jone's fans or anyone with a general interest in folk/popular art - there is some good events associated with the exhibition so I will be making several trips back for sure!
(talking lemon head sadly was not there!)

"This photo is perfect except for background which is...". Well, let's say "bad". Have you ever thought like that? Probably, you even made an attempt or two to edit the picture with the ruined Photo Background Editor, to no avail. Surely, not all of us are designers or at least IT savvy. So, here is a way for the rest of humanity to change the back scene of any photograph – the Photo Scissors online tool.
