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.
