Vermeer'esque lighting..........

"The Potato Eaters" by Van Gogh

"The Kebab Eaters" by Mark Page

Interesting post over on Magnum blog yesterday. http://blog.magnumphotos.com/ It relates to a competition that they ran last month looking for links between magnum photographs and paintings. You can see their choices here: http://blog.magnumphotos.com/2008/11/surfing_the_archive_competition_entries.html The article then goes on to criticise photographers who compare their work to that of painters in order to give it some sort of authority.
You wouldn't catch me doing that.
