“Imitation is sincerest form of flattery.” A common quote that might not be the best description of my relationship to another photographer’s work, could fit in this case. But I’d be the 7 year old stumbling to do my best interpretation.
I first came across the photography of Flemming Bo Jensen (Denmark) about 3 or 4 years ago. He used the same photo hosting site as me. I was inspired both by his work and his ability to present it in a simple and clean manner. Over time we shared short email communication; usually me asking for some help in understanding how to display my own work. He was always willing to give his thoughts and I have to credit his support for the current web layout of my own photos.
Flemming Bo Jensen is a world traveler that captures landscape and architecture in a spectacular way. His ability to combine lighting, mood, and composition is second to none. He creates photographs worthy of the highest of accolades. It is this ability to capture light that I try to replicate. Never to the same level of precision.
It is Flemming Bo Jensen’s approach to photography and approachability as one with a common interest that makes it easy to applaud his work. While this post doesn’t begin to do his work justice, I hope that it’s an introduction to some new eyes. All of Flemming Bo Jensen’s work can be seen by visiting his website.
