My study of conceptual photography
The homage of a photographer to France Day
Conceptual photography is a type of photography that illustrates an idea.
The term Conceptual Photography derives from Conceptual Art and the movement of the late 1960s. Today, the term is used to describe either a methodology or a genre.
These photographs are therefore produced to visualize a predetermined concept.
Homage or tribute is of course well represented by conceptual photography.
I have proposed a tribute to France’s Day, July the 14th, of the three colors of the flag: red, white and blue.
Secondly, my homage to the photographic version is brought to the trilogy Three Colours of Kieslowski Brothers.
My homage is directly addressed to Pierre Richard and the reference film * The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe *.
How did I prepare the photo: I started from the red shoe I emphasized with the red hat received a gift from Corina Schepp, my ex girlfriend, then I bought a white and navy blue shirt. I chose to take the beachfront photography in Vama Veche. The blue chair I borrowed from the Bookstore.
Nature helped me with a gorgeous blue sky reflected in the Black Sea.
The photo was taken with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III.
I asked a photographer friend, Ioan Ciobotaru, to frame the subject and trigger the camera.
