Diploma Started Again

Last week I started my Diploma in Digital Photography course again, this semester is auteur study. For the first week we had to study Eugene Atget.  Atget was one of the true early masters of photography, he lived from 1857 to 1927 and spent 30 years photographing Paris. His equipment and techniques were old fashioned when he started and he stuck with them until he died.

We were set the task of producing 4 images influenced by Atget’s work without copying him too directly, not an easy task. I chose to work around my home town, much as Atget worked around Paris, looking for local doors, derelict buildings and reflections.
