‘Homage’ in my archives

The phenomenon of inspiration and influence.

We were asked to go through our personal archives and pick a couple of shots which celebrate the influence of other photographers in your work.

This was easy for me to do I have so many images where elements could be associated with other photographers styles. I enjoy learning and developing my photographers eye because you can get inspiration from anywhere and anything.


I took this image in Luna Park at St Kilda’s ,Melbourne. Firstly I noticed the pose of the lady. It mimics the elephant in more ways than one. There is a grey base on the elephant statue and the scooter is grey . I remember walking round to get a better angle to the right to get more of the lady in the shot. As I was taking this shot I was thinking about Martin Parr, Matt Stuart and Elliot Erwin.
