Four Figures

By woolybill1
1928 - 1927 - 2018
A triptych formed by two posters and a reflection in a glass door. Gala Theatre, Durham.

(On reflection there is just enough evidence to claim a fifth figure in the distant doorway . . .)

Reading the triptych from left to right the figures become more and more clothed.
You do look like Mr. Corbyn in this one, Bill.
My immediate apology for that slur on your reputation...

Mr C is rather less . . . sturdy of build, I think . . . so no slur imagined SmileSmileSmile

And homage to Maier, along the way...

A performer at Covent Garden dubbed me 'JC' while I was photographing his act a little while back. Such is life.

Very well observed - an excellent and striking composition! SmileSmileSmile
(While the Jeremy Corbyn disguise is superb I'm inclined to think that you are really the Artist formerly known as Prints. Oh dear ... the medicated porridge isn't working ... Moira will explain! I'm off to the shed for therapy and I'm taking a big mug of tea fortified with sawdust!!)

This is a remarkable image. Good for you for seeing this opportunity and capturing it so well. This takes a lot of imagination.

A fine presentation, Bill 👍 Like how the woman in the background on the right is photographing you photographing the photographs...or is she blowing her nose... 😁

Alan - pardon?

Did you mean 'god photographer' or 'good photographing' or any combination of the above?

Feeling silly.

Your reflection looks like the postman picture on the book cover of Roger Martin du Gard's The Postman, Bill. This marvelous image can be counted as a homage to Claude Cahun / Lucy Schwob, the surrealist artist in search of identity. Fine work and so appropriate for the memory of this elusive photographer. I owe you an award.
