Bud Green’s passion for photography began in 2005 while sifting through some old family photos he inherited from his grandfather. Struck by the power of the grainy black and white images, his exploration of the medium led him to the pioneers of 20th century photography, and eventually to taking photographs of his own. He bought a Leica 35mm camera and pursued his craft while working his day job as a software developer. Though he has no formal training in photography, the geometry and precision of his compositions are evidence of his study of architecture.
The unusual title of Leitmotif is derived from the French word describing a recurrent musical phrase associated with a particular person, idea or situation. It is closely related to the musical concept of idée fixe, or motto-theme, used in music and literature to indicate a recurring theme or character trait serving as the structural foundation of a work. With Green’s selective eye and a photographic journal spanning decades, this collection of paired photographs connects seemingly disparate ideas. A consistent use of line, shape and tonality creates a new narrative when paralleled.
