Thank god there are artists and photographers out there who continue to appreciate the techniques of yestercentury. As Chesterton said, "Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere." His punnish wit says much about the value of what’s excluded versus what’s included in a piece, and nothing brings that dynamic to the fore better than being limited by a rule or a tool.
Anyway, sorry, I’ll shut up now. That first pic makes me crazed with appreciation. No, more than that. It’s a friggin transcendental longing. That moment is captured so perfectly it hardly seems real, and indeed, the longing is somekind of deep regret that that moment in time is gone forever. Killer piece.
