Photography and Painting: A Symbiosis

I am interested in finding a way of connecting a body of work, in this instance a series of portraits, to painting. A synthesis of Fine Art painting and Photography.

In order to progress the project, I will examine this connection. Questions that need to be thought of are:

  • What did painters borrow from photographs?
  • What did photographers borrow from painting?

What photographers have influenced painting, and what painters have influenced photography.
