Here’s a famous image I’m sure you’ve seen before. It was taken during construction of the Rockefeller Center and features 11 workers perched precariously high above New York City on a steel beam in 1932.
And here is my wedding guest version. I’m always looking for unique perspectives from which to tell the story of a couples wedding day and feel that feeding your subconscious regularly is the best way to increase your creativity. A well fed subconscious will always be searching for inspiration and looking to express it’s well stocked library through an artist’s images, painting or music.
Walking past this row of guests I recognized something familiar and stepped back to make an image of this collection of guests talking and sharing a relaxed and beautiful day. It was minutes later that it registered with me where I had seen something similar before, and I became proud of my photograph.
That’s why I love this photograph, an uncontrived salute to a well fed library of images residing in my subconscious.
