Photographing London

Living in London makes sense that it will be the most photographed city in all of the images that I’ve created. Although I am quite bias, it is a very beautiful city. One thing that is clear about London is the diversity of culture as well as the diversity in its architecture. This city’s architectural…

Patterns and Geometry

As as I am drawn to create more minimal sometime abstract images, I can’t but be captivated by patterns. Patterns not in the usual way. Patterns are all around us. They are an innate parts of most art mediums. Our ability to recognise patterns is a baseline skill for the human eye. It is a…

Creativity – Is there a limit?

The question about whether there is a limit to creativity divides opinion. Maya Angelou said that you can’t use up creativity. The more you use it, the more you have it. Although some of us readily agree, others believe that the mind and social influences can limit creativity. One thing that is sure is that…

Photography Clichés

I was going through some old images the other day and noticed something. I saw a pattern that I never noticed before. Although I push myself not to create the same things over and over again, I must admit that I have my favourites. Favourite composition, favourite edits even. Unfortunately for me, some of those…

Explanations

We have all become accustom to artists as well as photographers explaining the vision behind their work. Although I know that this is a good, it is something that I’ve always struggled with myself. I constantly struggle with putting my thoughts on paper and explaining the vision behind my work even though it is clear…

The formation depth is approximately 13 m (43 ft)…

Monday’s Photography Inspiration – Marcel Gautherot

Marcel Gautherot was a French-Brazilian photographer. He was best known for his documentation in some three-thousand images of the construction of the Brazilian capital city Brasilia from 1958 to 1960. He initially studied architecture but then dedicated himself to photography. He came to Brazil in 1940, his interest in the country awakened by reading the…

Is it necessary to create meaningful images?

The most important thing for me at the moment is creating images that are meaningful and powerful first for myself and then hopefully to someone that sees it. Photography after all is a tool of verbal non-communication that allows us to raise questions, create mystery or doubts in the viewer and most of all to transmit…

Love your story and write it your way!!

For me photography is a way to write my own story. I love writing which means that I carry around with me a book and a pen and I absolutely love the feel of it. I love gadgets and take notes in my phone by writing it down on paper brings a different feeling. My…
