“The camera should be used for a recording of life, for rendering the very substance and quintessence of the thing itself, whether it be polished steel or palpitating flesh.”
– Edward Weston–
Removing the original colors from an image reveals forms and structures and their relationships in a decluttered clarity which purifies the aesthetic feeling of the shown objects.
Black And White photography does exactly this. It focus our eyes on structure and clarity, forms and textures
With in this series of fine art image using maximum sharpness an No other effects then artificial or natural light I want to follow the minimalist approach in the heritage of the american fine art photography of Edward Weston or Imogen Cunningham. I hope to open the viewer new insights about the world around us. That my images show more then the subject.
Or like Edward Weston put it once: “This then: to photograph a rock, have it look like a rock, but be more than a rock.”
