“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up” Pablo Picasso
“Black and White photography strips the image down to its basic form and forces it to stand alone on the merits of form and composition” – Judy Mandolf
Here is the third part of the “View From The Edge” series.
This time with a group of (originally 8) shots of single islands. They are more traditional and don’t feature any reflections or views up or down. I called this sub-series “Longing” as it represents the view towards distant, unattainable places or mirages, divided by turbulent and lurking waters – another observation, or rather emotion, at the water’s edge.
As so often, B&W seems to be the visually stronger and more dramatic choice. Some feature long exposures to turn choppy water into cotton candy. Just various ways of departing from reality a bit more.
It’s important to realise that no photograph, as realistic or traditional it seems to be, represents reality – beyond the fact that there is no common reality in the first place. More about photography and reality HERE.
The prints are 16″ x 16″ / 40 x 40 cm on panels of 32″ x 36″ / 81 x 91 cm. They are mounted together and fill on wall. Ideally they should remain as a group.
