Tribute Art

 It is a great privilege when other artists send us their own works
based on my pictures.  It is a wonderful affirmation of the
strength and dignity shown on the faces
of these people around the world.

Great work all the way around! What do artists do with their work based on these photographs? Are they able to see this work?

Always wanted to paint from your photographs. but afraid of copyrights, now I am glad, will send you the finished version. thank u sir.

Such an excellent tribute to your work. Always a pleasure to look and admire . Thank you Stevebhai

Wow, these are fabulous. What a great thing for you to post this too. You inspire me to photograph and it’s a personal passion for me. Through yours and other’s work I’ve got such a longing to travel and photograph everything I see, but until such time as I can, I shall live vicariously through you all. Thank you for posting such a lovely tribute.

This is way beyond beautiful. I dont know where to save the link so that I never forget about this post.

Steve, you are correct in stating it is a tribute to those you have photographed and shared their stories. This is also a tribute to uou, the compassionate traverler and chronical of the human race. I am and continue to be inspired.

When I saw your name in my email, before opening it, I wondered if it would be ok to paint one of your pictures. My answer to myself was, “No. Of course not. There are all kinds of copyright issues to consider.” It’s so nice to see that you are honored and not threatened by someone’s tribute to your talent. These paintings are superb. Thank you for sharing them with us.

I wanted a long time ago to ask you if I can draw some of your photos. I am glad to discover that you have no problem with this.
