Life Imitates (or Initiates Art)

The weekly theme is ‘Life Imitates Art’. The brief invites to take inspiration in a piece of art and imitate it.

This photo is from the roof terrace of One New Change. Three young women, two of them with designer bags, are photographing the views over London. I took their picture as a street shot, the three young women busy taking photos with their smart phones was an interesting subject. Later I found a paparazzo relaxing in the background. On the roof was a party going and I assume he was there to take photos of known to the public attendees. In fact I was doing the same as he did, looking and choosing subjects. He was there to make a living, I was there to see London and shoot for fun. Well, maybe these young women will be well known in the future? The art of photography is multi present in this world and photo.We all look – consciously or not – for a photo that pleases our aspirations.
