This is Barbara
Crane's website, and this part is the tutorial that should help
you navigate through the site flawlessly (even if you are not used
to visiting a website).
On this page please note
that there are screen copies on the left and text on the right.
The screen copies are active, which means that clicking on them
will take you to the actual page of the site that is represented.
(In a new window, once you have taken a look at it and would like
to go back to the tutorial, simply close the window.) In the text,
you will see that certain words appear in bold characters. These
are links. If you click on them, that will take you to a page where
the topic is explained further more. At all times, during the browsing
of this tutorial, you can go back to the previous page by clicking
on the back button of your browser, or the link that says "Back"
at the bottom of the page. The purpose of this tutorial is to guide
you in such a way that you need not return to it, after you have
visited Barbara Crane's web site a few times. In the meantime we
wish you a pleasant visit. Remarks can be sent to Philippe
De Jonckheere, the webmaster.

page", the first page, by which you arrived here. Both images

one of them, it will take you to a different page (see below).
On the index page, if you
have clicked on the image on the left, it has taken you to a page
featuring a combination photograph entitled Tar Findings. If
you have chosen to click on the image on the right, it has taken you
to page with a photograph entitled Cosmic Forms. These two
pages have the same features, which is that every single cell of the
image is active and clickable and will lead you to the different series
of photographs that Barbara Crane has produced over the years.

more images from this series by clicking on one of the small cells
of the combination picture next to the main image. If you would like
to completely come out of where you are, the lady coming out of a
door is your friend. Click on her image and that will take you to
the Tar Findings or the Cosmic Forms pages, from which
you will be able to take a different route. Please also note that
all the main images are also active. Click on them and that will take
you to images belonging to a different series.
