Some believe black and white images reveal more…
I started this website undertaking thinking it would only contain black and white imagery.
As I looked at the whole of it, I sensed a somber mood especially in the “Woods”. I added
some color which often can distract the relationship between key elements. I was prudent so
as not to make it look too real life.
If color is then real life - the breath of black and white photos are about real life. If the viewer is patient, he may see a reality so subtle that it becomes more real. Negative space is amplified, shape, form, patterns are more emphasized. Skin can actually become the subject.
In viewing the photos of the French masters, I find I feel the images more than see them. An unconscious or involuntary reckoning takes hold and suddenly I get it, - that dreamlike view of the world.
