Above/featured: “Interchange (after Harry Callahan).” Downtown Vancouver – 28 Jul 2016 (6D1).
“Color is descriptive. Black and white is interpretive.”
– Eliott Erwitt
“I work in color sometimes, but I guess the images I most connect to, historically speaking, are in black and white. I see more in black and white – I like the abstraction of it.”
– Mary Ellen Mark
For me, the pull towards photography has always been about images in colour and landscape format to highlight a location, illuminate a historical event, or to feature a person who touched many lives. Thinking about and making images either square, in monochrome, or both have provided useful challenges to push the working dynamics of creativity. I hope the following images will get the viewer to ask if there’s more than what’s presented and to get possible answers on their own.
Cape Town, South Africa
Prague, Czech Republic
I made all pictures above with various detectors: Canon EOS450D/XSi (450D), Canon 6D mark 1 (6D1), and Fujifilm X70 (X70); alle Fotoaufnahmen sind mit Wasserzeichen versehen worden.
