Magnum: The Founders.
A good summary to read Eddy. Was just wondering whether you you would like to ’emulate’ any of them in terms of their style.
I don’t think I would Catherine, Capa clearly was an out and out war junky, Cartier-Bresson seems to have had a sixth sense to help him and Chim just doesn’t do anything for me, I’d much rather try and develop my own unique style actually.
Well – we’re always being asked to reference photographers and say who has influenced us. Presumably we absorb some of all that into what then becomes our own style.
I know what you mean Catherine, but does ‘influence’ mean ’emulate’ or ‘pick bits from’? Influence can also be positive, negative or even ambivalent, but to me it doesn’t mean change my style because of, it just helps me decide if the path I’m taking has any relevance.
Well – I think it can mean all of those. At least you seem to know what your style is. Maybe I’ll know mine one of these days.
I’m sure you do know what your style is Catherine, I think everyone can see it in your images they have a certain ‘Catherine’ look, I’ve seen people write that before in your blog, you’re just not as confidant perhaps that you’re there yet????
I won’t waste your own blog space here but when we meet up maybe you could tell me what this ‘Catherine look’ is!
A very gentle, feminine and inquisitive stance and viewpoint.
Mmm -I’ll have to meditate on that for a bit. Thanks Eddy.
I haven’t said anything wrong I hope, it was all meant as a complement
Not at all. It’s just that I can’t quite see it myself in my photographs!
