Peppered Herring

As I mentioned in my first post of this ‘tribute’ week, Guy Bourdin was the first photographer I used to influence one of my photos, way back in April 2015.
Today I have chosen one of his more ridiculous images to copy. I didn’t get a whole fresh fish though. I got some peppered herring out of the freezer! After finishing my photo I zizzed it up with some natural yoghurt and horseradish sauce to make a very tasty pate!

    I think you have absolutely excelled yourself with this one. I love that your fish does not have a head which implies that you might have bitten it off. Just brilliant

      Totally agree Molly! Bravo Ms 40 x x

    I’ve very much enjoyed your reproductions of famous erotic images, but this one is exceptional…dare I say better than the original?! Much prefer the focus and lips in yours.

    Great twist – you probably have topped the original in my opinion!

    This made me smile and is a great photo – glad you eat the fish after πŸ˜‰

    Both are great but the second is extra special.

    • Exposing40

      Yes, that’s the original by Bourdin so I would expect it to be the extra special one!!
