Balcon II

June 30th, 2009

I found this one in the comments for “Tim Walker for Hermès“. Philippe Ramette made this photograph called “Balcon II” in Hong-Kong in 2001. There is some discussion going on if Tim Walker copied Philippe Ramette …
I just like both photographs.

    well tim may or may not know the work. philipps work was first. so actually he gets more credit in my book.
    tims work is empty trying to be something. most fashion work is. Philipps work comes from a very different place. I guess you would have to be blind not to see that. but that said they are not the same picture. that is why it is not a copy. but an empty fashion version of an art project.

    this is beautiful !!
    i guess it’s possible to shoot (without editing at all) but that’s gonna be one hell of a job for the model.

    I love the picture, very disorientating. The only thing that bugs me about it is that since the picture is taken 45 degrees off angle to make it look like he is just walking out of the ocean and we are off axis, but his jacket is still using our gravity. I love the picture, but my analness of random details kills things for me. haha

  13. Ryan Riegner Says:

    wow, what a brilliant concept. Hard to believe that’s even real! great job Philippe!

  14. Arcane Says:

    Agree with Casey. Even if they do fail at angles. 90 degrees*
