Monotones

December 12, 2020
I feel that this preference for black and white and an up close perspective comes from a sort of tiredness with reality. Tired of the mundane scenes that photo walks are offering, of the visual noise of the urban environment that I now depend on. This series, a mixed bag of images of bricks and stones from my everyday surroundings and memories of past landscapes, tied together by a layer of monochrome, somehow feels apt for this timeframe: a blur of successive days that I can hardly tell apart, inflicting a sort of meditative, detachted state of mind. A world coming to a stand still, while time is accelatering, leaving not much of a trace.
