I decided to blog about some painters because I realized how they can influence my photography. Yves Tanguy, born in Paris in 1900, is a big influence to photographer, Pete Turner. Tanguy was a surrealist painter with work that involved surprising compositions and subjects. Tanguy's paintings inspire me because they are so different. I love the bright colors against the somewhat subdued background. It makes the subject really stand out. I also really like the use of shadow in his paintings to add a new form to the piece.
