I can’t say why Black and White photography touches me so much. maybe it is easier for me to understand. Some people understand quantum physics, others understand women. I understand black and white images. Don’t get me wrong, I love colour. I love a beautiful sunset or a pregnant green rain forest plastered with moss and fungi, but a simple black and white image can awaken an emotion deep inside me that no colour has ever done, especially my own work.
Maybe i like black and white because it is simpler, there is less to comprehend to understand the image, or to take it in. How many colours are there, billions? How many shades of black and white is there, I’ll tell you later one day but there are surprisingly very limited amount.
My images are not technically correct. But then what is a technically correct fine art photograph? If you find it slightly blurry then stand further away or take of your glasses. I try not to have blurred photo’s unless that is my intention and then it will be the focus, like Revolution.
My images are not created in a studio. I don’t own such equipment.
Il semble que la perfection soit atteinte non quand il n’y a plus rien à ajouter, mais quand il n’y a plus rien à retrancher. d’Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Apparently the English translation has caused vibrating debates on the net so I will keep it as the original which I can’t read. But I know what it means. And that is all that is important. For me it is about simplicity. I don’t have complex deep images. Most of my images are not planned, they are in-the-moment visions coupled with a deep need to fulfill a desire to capture it.
All my photographs brought an emotional twinge to me. Every single one speaks to me and i can look at them and feel good inside.
I hope they spark something inside you to, even if it is only one.
I have to thank you for finding my website. It is very far from SEO optimized, and believe me, I know a lot about that. It is so well hidden in obscura that I hope you do not think it is part of the Dark Web. But the site is far from it. Enjoy 🙂
