Royal Academy - on the way to see Kertesz and the Hungarians



  1. I like this photo a lot. One person, a torso, and two shadowed legs. As if the torso has lost its legs. :) Nicely built composition which lets much room to the spectator. Normally I do not like the grey-BW, but in this case it works.

  2. When Nora saw this she claimed copyright. She has done a series based on people in galleries.

    I love the myriad of reflection providing plenty to intrigue and investigate especially the disembodied legs.
    The orthogonals lead up to the silhouette of the main subject and help draw me in to the image.

  3. very nice. haven’t we all done a series on people in galleries? I always find gallery/museum goers interesting as photographic subjects.
    This one had me immediately thinking of Magritte.

  4. Magritte is a good call — it definitely has a feeling like that. Delightful image. I love the lines and shapes as well.
    I have never done a series on people in galleries — maybe not even one image.

  5. Christina – I don’t go to enough galleries to do a series! I prefer being on the street! However, this exhibition was a great round-up of the twentieth century both in Hungary and all the countries the exiles found themselves in.

  6. very well seen scene. Torso, disconnected legs, split body. Organic shapes set against rigid glass, metal and stone. Unpredictable vs predictable. One to be proud of.
