Tribute To Mr. Stock’s Portraits of the Legendary James Dean

Dennis Stock, a celebrated Magnum photographer, took some of the most iconic portraits of legendary Hollywood actor James Dean on and off camera.

From New York streets to scenes in a shoot, from visiting an old familiar place to watching things that were rural, all these came so close to seeing the old James Dean before his death on September 30, 1955. Yes, it was 24 years before his untimely demise in a car accident.

As a tribute, I interpreted Stock’s vintage monochromatic shots with a palette of colors and textures of street vignettes during my recent hiking trip to a sacred mountain. The colors and textures were much an interpretation of what could-have-happen after Dean would be alive. Hope that these interpretations make up for the black-and-white photos Mr. Stock did.

This is my series of analogue art on photos honoring Stock and Dean. I hope I could see more of Mr. Stock’s awesome works for creative inspiration. Loving analogue photography even more!

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!

    Neil Krug: Daylight Nightmares and Color Codes

    His work has the anachronistic charm of hand-tinted photographs and the trippy flavor of rock. Sometimes too his portraits of Lana Del Rey, Kevin Parker and Jim James cross over to the territory of graphic design and pop art, skewing definitions of what a picture is. Neither are his views on photography straitlaced, as this exciting interview with Lomography proves.
