Alain Comeau



Shortly after my descent into the abyss of digital photography I began making portraits that adhered to a 1920s Edward Weston dictum that proclaimed the cloudless sky as the perfect backdrop for portraiture. This 2002 image of climbing guide, sailor and musician Alain Comeau was among my initial efforts. Could he look more French?

Aren't these descents, as you call them, into different photographic processes, a thing of beauty? Glad you took that descent from film to digital, and continued to explore the world, including this shot of Alain Comeau. That French touch indeed.

As is evident seemingly all the time, Google has a mind of its own. The above entry was from Daryl rather than Fred, but he agrees!
