Travess Smalley

Some rare photographs of the notoriously camera (and documentation) shy artist Stanley Brouwn. They were taken by Dutch photographer Igno Cuypers - brother to jazz pianist Leo Cuypers - and are part of the Fondazione Bonotto Collection.

The work consists of the artist stopping passersby in the street and asking for directions, which he has them scrawl on a piece of paper. The drawings are then rubber-stamped THIS WAY BROUWN and shown in vitrines.
