(NOTE: After a long break, I’m turning my attention back to photography with a renewed online presence (including a lot of simplification). My blog is now hosted on free WordPress for the moment.)
One of the first photographers I came to admire is Martin Parr. His ability to capture irony in every day modern scenes along with his command for using color appropriately as a protagonist in each story is astounding to me!
I know a lot of peers of mine who are walking encyclopedias of famous photographers. I am terrible with names, dates and details but never forget an image. Martin influenced my personal style of shooting probably more than most with his images.
In recreating my online presence for 2020, I became quite frustrated in the large volume of photos from personal trips I have taken in the last two years and instead of struggling to find new candidates for my portfolio, I realized that there was something there, actually. So, I now include a section of my website dedicated to this Magnum photographer’s work.
You can find my ongoing tribute on I Wish I Were Martin Parr.
Happy New Year!
