Juxtaposition – unexpected combinations of colours, shapes and ideas
For years, my creative work has been focusing on architectural photography. Mostly, the images were black and white; the pictures showed 20th and 21st century buildings. Modern architecture is a world created of stone, steel, and glass. Hence, the images are defined by clear lines, patterns, and shapes, by a “cold” atmosphere. By using some elements of the Chiaroscuro style this effect is enhanced even further.
You’ll hardly find any fine art architectural photography showing people – mine included. But still, those buildings are created by human beings, and even more important, they are built to be used by people.
That’s the initial idea of my all-new series “Juxtaposition”, consisting of the two sub-series “Shape” and “Colour”. I want to create images which have both elements – architecture and portrait.
This project is a cooperation with fellow artist Kypris Athina who is not only a wonderful model but an excellent photographer and make up artist as well. Check out her work – you won’t regret!
My sincere thanks also go to my old friend Ingo Werner. Most of the pics were taken with his fabulous Canon 70-200/2.8 lens. Danke!
I will post the images of the Juxtaposition series on my blog and on various internet and social media platforms. Your comments and likes are hugely appreciated – feel free to share the images (and don’t forget to name the source …). So have fun and enjoy!
