Um fotógrafo (Richard Sadler) homenageia outro fotógrafo (Weegee) / 'Weegee the Famous' by Richard Sadler




‘A portrait that suggests both homage, from one photographer to another, and construct about the photographic vision. Sadler focuses on the face and direct gaze of the famous American photographer Weegee. One eye is open, alert and fixed on the visible world, while the second “framed” eye is the camera itself, Weegee’s Zenith. We, the viewers, appear to be the point of study for Weegee at the same time as Sadler is studying his fellow practitioner. Or is this portrait also encapsulating the essential relationship between subject, photographer and viewer? Weegee’s eye and the essential prop of his trade are interdependent with us in our real space, as is Sadler’s; the construct is both finite and infinite ’
