G+Project52–Week #8: Other Photographers


Mondrian's Glasses and pipe by André Kertesz and my personal interpretation

Yes, last week’s theme for the G+Project52 has been kind of challenging: Other Photographers… I live in a little town in Northern Italy where seeing photographers around in the streets is not at all usual. To be honest, people look at you with curiosity and a bit suspicious when they see you with a camera in your hands. No chances for me to photograph other photographers in action… so I decided to pick a work from one of my favorite Masters and try to do my best to reproduce it my way.

I’ve always loved André Kertesz, his works are so inspiring. I scoured the internet and finally chose Kertesz’s  work Mondrian’s glasses and pipe. Apparently, it looked a simple shot. Apparently.

I set up everything on a little white tea cart and positioned it near a balcony window in my studio.  Shot this with my Sigma 50mm and in an awkward position, squeezed between my desktop and a armchair. Took many shots and at the end went for the one you see above. I had to get rid of the window in the background, so I selected it in PS and filled the spaces with black.

All in all, I like it and I had a great time. I may as well try a few more from other photographers… we’ll see…

Have a look at +Project52-2012 page on G+ to participate.
