Pride In The Name Of Love

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on June 8, 2014 by johnbuckley100

Yesterday was Washington D.C.’s Capital Pride Parade, one of the longest-running gay pride events in the U.S.  For a photographer, it was a “target-rich environment.”  We’ll be posting more in the days ahead.  For now, here are some images to give you a sense of the evening — the golden light, the happiness of the participants, what a scene it was.  All images Leica M, 35mm Summilux Asph FLE.

Where The Mind Goes By Mid-March

This is not March Madness.  This is the very essence of sanity, to dream of this on a grey March day when winter lingers.  Leica M, 35mm Summilux Asph FLE, LR4 and then to a Fuji preset in Nik Color Efex 4.

New Photos Up At The Stephen Bartels Gallery

There is a theme to the new photos we are exhibiting at The Stephen Bartels Gallery in London, and it is captured well here.

For those who visit Tulip Frenzy, you’ve likely noticed our fixation, since his death in November, with the late master Saul Leiter.  The images we’ve chosen to exhibit this month all reflect this study of his work.

We don’t think there is anything amiss with a photographer — or any artist — admitting that he’s been so knocked over by his study of a master, that he has self-consciously attempted to apply what he’s learned to his own photography.  We’d be willing to bet that, like Cormac McCarthy channeling Faulkner, or the Brian Jonestown Massacre channeling the Velvet Underground, some of the best work by our favorite writers and musicians flow from their desire to emulate their influences.  If over a long career there’s only one influence emulated, then the artist is derivative, unoriginal.  But if he or she is a magpie, and takes a little from here and a little from there, well, in that case we call them The Dandy Warhols.  And everyone gets something that they want.

Enjoy the images.  And if you like them, don’t forget they’re for sale!
