When I enter a new space it is easier for me to evaluate simple beauty.
Shot a lemon/lemon slice the other night. The 80mm lens wasn’t quite right - I am thinking of trying a watermelon/ exposing the image a bit more….
Strong lines and structure demonstrate order. Nice to see when you can’t imagine putting all the pieces together.
A couple weeks ago I went to Aperture Gallery where Magnum photographers gathered to tell their stories. Pictured are two Magnum photographers - Martin Parr & Jim Goldberg. There wasn’t much available light, but when Jim sat on Martin’s lap and began to act as a puppeteered ‘dummy’ and Martin a ventriloquist I did the best I could to get a shot.
After meeting them/ seeing them in the flesh I was struck by how much their own personalities and styles come through in their photographs. Let’s just say Martin Parr comes off as comical and as loud as his pictures.
