Raining Outside My Window Pt II
11th July 2016 - 0 comments


Another shot taken from my apartment window on a rainy day in London.

I am a great admirer of past masters W. Eugene Smith and Saul Leiter who both inspired this series of photos about life outside my window.

Between 1957 and 1965 W. Eugene Smith made approximately 40,000 exposures both inside the loft building at 821 Sixth Avenue, of the nocturnal jazz scene, and of the street below as seen through his fourth-floor window. This classic body of work, is from a series entitled "As From My Window I Sometimes Glance".

Saul Leiter was a prolific painter and photographer from Pittsburgh USA. A true master and some consider a pioneer of film based colour photography in the 1940s and 1950's, and remains a true inspiration for me. I highly recommend a feature documentary about Saul, called "In No Great Hurry" if you have yet to watch it.

Taken from my apartment window. When I don't fancy going out in the rain to get some street shots, having a room with a view definitely has its perks!
