Homage to Bresson and Kertesz

Brighton383If I had to rescue 10 of my photographs from a fire this image would certainly be one of those  I would grab. I’m not entirely sure what makes it so alluring for me, on the surface it is simply a man with an umbrella running across a road on a snowy sleety January day, but as your eye wanders around the picture all those fugitive  compositional elements  fuse together in what dear old Cartier Bresson would term a decisive moment. The added bonus  is the photograph doesn’t give any answers and only asks questions in a similar vein to the images of the great Andre Kertesz. I guess I just got lucky with this one!
