Things Redirected


What would Leiter do?

Imagine if the internet had been around forty / fifty / sixty years ago, but that cameras had remained analogue: do you think Bailey, Page, Leiter, Penn, Adams, Arbus, Abbot or Moon* would have sat about at their computer screens arguing on forums about the relative merits of Hassleblad, Nikon, Kodachrome blah blah blah? Or do you think they would have been out getting on with producing beautiful, resonant photographs? Exactly. So, c'mon, stop it. The Fuji XPro2 vs. the Nikon D500? Who cares? Both can be made to sing by the right person - get to it. 


*I'm on a one-man mission to raise Sarah Moon's profile - that's her photo, above - how am I doing?

when I'm confronted with a request for headshots, say, I can't just stop there I have to start experimenting. I mean, you wouldn't put this on Spotlight or the IMDb now would you? Ah well, I wouldn't do it if I couldn't, if you see what I mean. Above is the ever-beautiful Claire-Monique Martin taken on Friday. Other photographs were procured.
