Picture Story

The more I develop as a photographer, the more I tend to enjoy working on different series of images. Maybe it has something to do with my childhood hobby of collecting stamps which often come in series. I think there is something very compelling about repetition of similar but different objects. A series of images is often more telling than a single image and it can help emphasize different aspects of individual photographs. I guess this is also the reason why series are a common place in photo competitions.

In spring 2020, I was photographing a small area of rural landscape over a period of three months. I started at the very end of winter when there was still some snow and I continued well into the growing season. During this time, the colours of the landscape, the direction of sunlight and weather conditions were constantly changing. Unfortunately, I am not able to show a series of images here, however this image is a good example of a larger body of work in which I focused on very graphical and sometimes even abstract interpretation of the landscape based on colours, lines, rhythms of volumes, textures, isolated objects, light and shadow. I worked in three different aspect ratios - 3:2, 2:1 and 3:1 thus producing essentially three separate series.
