    Post your homage to another photographer (any format)

    Homage: something done or given in acknowledgment or consideration of the worth of another.

    Perhaps you have made a photograph in the style or approach of another, either purposely or accidentally.

    Perhaps your photograph evokes or emulates the feeling of another photographer's work.

    In the style of Josef Sudek. Like it or lump it, I’m fine either way. :-)

    This is certainly reminiscent of the famous Evans photograph of the steps but with your own composition, lighting, atmosphere, etc.

    Pretty hip actually ! Some people might feel intimidated to approach this subject.

    Who wrote Variations on a Theme of Paganini: Brahms ?

    Who wrote Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini: Rachmaninoff ?

    Last time we spoke, Paganini told me he was flattered

    Wrong! Josef Sudek never photographed dead leaves in a glass of stagnate, putrefied water. Most, if not all, of his portraits that I have seen are of vibrant floral arrangements in vessels of clear, clean water. In choosing such compositions Sudek celebrated life and did not subscribe to the politically correct “ain't life terrible” sentiment so prevalent today.

    Misrepresentation is not "homage."

    There's no "wrong" here. It's not necessary for Paul's work to replicate every aspect of Sudek's work, or any particular aspect of Sudek's work, in order for Paul to feel that he has been influenced by Sudek, or for others to see echoes of Sudek in it.

    Let's see if we can take this as an opportunity to think about influences and relationships that we may not have recognized before, rather than looking for reasons to dismiss others' perceptions out of hand.

    Paul: it's beautiful, thanks for sharing and for giving us an interesting proposition to ponder.

    If there is any wrong it is erroneous suppositions based on limitations of personal knowledge.

    Sudek did indeed make quite a number of images of still life portraits of leaves in water, bread, flower in water, etc. looking through windows, often almost exactly as depicted in the image posted here by Paul.

    See for example Plate #51, "Glass and Rose", a 27.3 by 20.6 cm carbro print, in the book Josef Sudek: Sixty Pigment Prints From the Artist's Estate, published 1998 in New York by Salander-O'Reilly Galleries.

    And do a quick search for Sudek and Last Rose and you should see a print very similar to the one Paul posted.

    Thanks for the idea. I looked at Last Rose, and then a bunch of others. I have not spent as much time as I should looking at Sudek's work! So many lovely and inspiring images. -Rob
