Je suis votre homme. "I am your man." In the days of feudalism, a vassal was required to ceremonially pledge support and fealty to his lord. The act was called homage.

Happily, those days are long over. Now when we pay homage, we're simply making a display of great respect towards someone. We're acknowledging our debt to them, expressing our appreciation of their mastery of a skill or talent.

With this project, the members of Utata are paying homage to six great photographers, each with a distinctive photographic style. By attempting to mimic their style, we not only show our esteem for their work, but we gain a greater appreciation of it. It's our way of saying, Je suis votre homme. Je suis votre femme.
