There are a hundred images in total, fifty in each gallery. Today I am presenting the monochrome collection. This has been a fascinating process to consider which 50 to include. Most of the photographs are included in my folios on the blog. Seeing all the images side by side, however, is very revealing to me.
I noticed that I am particularly attracted to dramatic skies, diagonal compositions and asymmetry! I was able, by viewing the collection as a whole, to see the underlying themes of my work very clearly. I thought it was a fitting way to end the year.
The photographs were chosen not so much for their artistic merit but for how they came to be and what they personally mean for me. You might try creating your own retrospective, either digitally or by actually printing out the images and staging a "viewing" for friends and family. Since I consider my blog readers my extended family...you are all invited! Just click on the invitation above and visit the monochrome gallery!
My Icon is "Up Close and Far Away", the image above. It is the one image that if all the others were lost would be most representative of my approach...my "style" of photography. I hope you enjoy your visit to this first gallery and don't forget to sign the guest book! (Which is just another way of saying, comments are welcome!)
