Some Influences


Garry Winogrand


Jackson Pollock


Pablo Picasso


Nicolas Poussin


Here are some obvious influences on my recent pictures of people. Winogrand, Pollock, Picasso and Poussin are more or less formal influences. I've used the way they distribute the figure (or gestures in Pollock's case) kind of evenly over the composition.

Influences on how I think about my work are much more all over the map. But some obvious names that bubble up: Harry Callahan, Walker Evans, P.-L. DiCorcia, Ed Rusha, and the Bechers.

I just looked at your photos on your website and came to your blog after. I can see exactly why and how these images are your influences. Very interesting. Click.

OK, now I'll continue reading. Thank you.
