photographs I make I trace an influence of a picture I once saw. I am aware of
that, sometimes during the moment I shoot the photograph, sometimes afterwards. Sometimes the Icon Photo will be a very
famous one, sometimes a rather anonymous snapshot.
plan is to post from time to time a photo made by me, accompanied by a
description in words of the Icon Photo and the name of the photographer.
behind Follow the Icon is that, although as
a photographer I developed a reasonable signature and style of my own, I
often am influenced by other examples. I do not mind at all; I think this a
very interesting phenome.
Follow the Icon 1-Because of Henri Cartier Bresson.
A man is
anonymously cycling through a street. At the right moment, the cyclist
perfectly placed into the composition, the photographer pushes the button. A
somewhat longer exposure time whereby the speed of the cyclist becomes
tangible. (My picture I made this year in Cork, the photo of CB was somewhere
in the back of my mind)
