Aside from the subtle color palette, what other elements contribute to Jan Saudek?
And just for reference for those who aren’t familiar with Mr. Saudek https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Saudek
Mr Saudek originally produced his photo in 1990, entitled ‘Eine Liebe’. There are a couple of different versions of his- one hand tinted on silver gelatin, the other being rendered in a more sepia style. I have taken his idea and given it my spin. I‘ve tried to replicate the pose of the lovers that are engaging the ultimate and most taboo of sexual acts...
Saudek, Mapplethorpe, Gatewood and Serrano are the biggest influences on my photography. I love the ‘set up’ and staged look of Mr Saudek, it reminds me of the Victorian era...
Understood. I see it. The shabbiness of the environment also has that post war Czech ambiance.
I have such great respect for Jan Saudek this is a lovely piece, right down to the sock on the right foot.
Yea that’s the icing on the photo cake.
