After working on a winter flower and mini-winter landscape series, I spend most of my time in the cities. Going out and photographing some architectural detail was a lot of fun, and inspired me to do more.
I have been studying some of the great master photographers lately. One that I particularly like is Saul Leiter. In a documentary shot at the end of this life called “In no great hurry” Saul said the following: “The one nice thing about photography, it teaches you to look. It teaches you to appreciate all kinds of things.” So true!
All these photographs were captured with one camera / one lens each. Not having choices and further being limited to black and white / monochrome is paradoxically liberating. I am fascinated by this simple zen-like approach to photography.
Here some examples:
