Day 57: Marion…Marion
Alfred Hitchcock is one of my favorite directors and his movie, Psycho is considered by many fans and critics as his best work. Though this movie is not my personal favorite, purely from an artistic value, I don’t think any other film can top this one. His genius shines through in the storyline, soundtrack, usage of black-and white film, and of course, the cinematography. What draws me into his movies is the usage of recurring thematic elements. In Psycho, for example, we see Hitchcock using repeatedly using shadows, windows, backlighting, and water throughout the movie.
For today’s 365 photo, I tried to use the same set of elements to pay my homage to this director. My intent was not to recreate a scene but use similar set of motifs to produce a similar mood, tone and just plain old Hitchcock creepiness.
