I've enjoyed seeing your photographs on your site. It's fun to learn how you view the world when you're not working on a film. That made me curious: what are some of your favorite photographs (by other photographers), and why do you like them? I mean your favorite specific images, not just series or styles.
I'll share some of my favorites.http://www.jmcfaber.at/inventory/classic/frechon.htm
- I love this image because it's mysterious. The building is strange, and the side light and framing of the image makes me wonder what the rest of that place looks like.http://www.ljplus.ru/img4/f/o/for_a_k/20jhjhjh.jpg
(I haven't found the photographer yet.) - The lines! The far line of the pyramid looks like a tilted horizon line, and again, the image leaves a lot to the imagination. Also, the printing process (it looks a bit like albumen, to me) has that soft, classical glow.http://www.blckdmnds.com/a-historia-de-um-olhar-henri-cartier-bresson/henricartierbresson-boat/
- What a decisive moment. I think of this as a photograph made for other photographers. There are so many visual associations.http://artblart.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/gm_06219701-web.jpg
- I like this because the mountains and clouds seem grand, yet the pine cones seem so silly. It's as though Adams were poking fun at his own work.
