Fake – Homage to Saul Leiter

Saul Leiter’s use of colour photography brought a painterly subtlety to the traditionally black and white photographic world. Some images stay with you and influence how you frame your own work.

This image from Cap Martin, Côte d’Azur, France, was not intended to fake one of Leiter’s works – a sense of déjà vu in a place I had never been to before crept in and lined up the image.

And here is it compared to Leiter’s Mondrian Worker, 1954, as pictured in Early Color.

    This reminds me of Bruce Chatwin’s photographs too. I like the image.
