i was seriously waiting for someone to draw this parallel. marie was actually inspired by my photo. if you check the date on this blog post made by audreyhepburncomplex (not my blog), it predates marie zucker’s photo by a year. marie actually messaged me on flickr (i still have the message) to see if she could post her photo that was inspired by mine. she didn’t post credit, which upset me a little bit at the time, but it doesn’t bother me now. i’ve always really enjoyed her photography and I still do.
my original photo in color doesn’t exist on flickr anymore because i preferred the black and white version. but yes, if there’s any question of which came first, check the blog post above for the timestamp. or you can just message marie, because she’s incredibly sweet and she’d tell you the same thing.
