A NOD TO MR. FONTANA

I have always recognized the photographers that have been an influence on me. From the very big influences like Aaron Siskind, Wynn Bullock, and Brassai. Today I give the nod to Franco Fontana.

I first saw several of his images in a photography magazine I purchased back in the seventies. I believe I still have that magazine somewhere in my closet. 
His landscapes and use of color were stunning.

The two images I am posting today certainly illustrate the influence of Mr. Fontana, although at the moment I made these images, some forty years later, his name was not on the tip of my mind but he was somewhere back there slipping through the layers of time.
