Most of ‘Other people’s pictures I like” are by famous photographers, this one is of some one who I don’t think is famous, well he probably is in the Cathouse in Glasgow. Take a look at his nightclub photos, just lovely. I don’t think the first is a night club photo, I like the way it has been processed, but the second one is. I love the way he has got people to pose for him.
Thanks to Stephen for letting me use two of his photos. Below is a link to the Cathouse photos.
Martin Parr was born in 1952 in England. He is a member of Magnum.
I have liked this photo for some time and always assumed it was taken early in the last century. I recently found out it was taken around 2006 in a series called ‘Surf land’. It was taken with a 10×8 plate camera using a wet collodion process. I think it has a lovely tonal quality.
A nice thing to do. Print your best photos as post cards, when you read a book use them as a book mark then leave them there for some one to find in the future.
