Re: Réf. : Sury & Misonne

Phillippe and to all others as well,
There seems to be some interest about Sury's work and his process. Phillippe as practically no knowledge of english but in french even I have some difficulty to follow him. With this said, I could try to translate the information he as graciously put on his website, of course if Chistina or any others here on the list are working on this already, please let me know. I would like to know if this interest you seem to have is just curiosity or if my effort would be useful and be of some benefit to the community. I know some of you are teachers and a translation might be useful, just let me know either on the list or offlist, I don't mind.
PS Phillippe, j'offre de traduire la documentation que tu as si gentiment mis a la disposition des autres sur ton site, si cela peu etre utile evidemment.

It is written 'Leonard Misonne', born in Charleroi -  Belgien, and i
saw an exhibition of his work some time ago in the photomuseum of
Charleroi, and the pictures i saw were a.o. (brom)oil prints and
gum, very  pictorialistic and depressing images of daily life and
factories next to romantic landscapes with sheeps et al.
