Brussels a photographic black and white Diptych.

Taken many years ago, edited the other day. I’m enjoying doing the occasional photographic diptych: it isn’t so much about creating a sequence that illustrates the passage of time but more about bringing photographs together that question  the assumptions we make when watching or photographing a scene.

The question here is what does the observer assume about the relationship between the man,the boy and the woman. Is there a relation ? If so what is its nature ? Why is she behind them ? The possibilities are infinite.

At Sea En Mer

Ok, I rarely go for a reduced tonal range but here I felt it fitted for this photo. On the other hand, I felt that the flagpole image needed something more subtle. D’accord, je vais rarement pour un éventail réduit de tons mais ici j’ai pensé que cela convenait à cette photo. en revanche, il m’a semblé que l’image du mat pour drapeau avait besoin d’un traitement plus nuancé.

As for the next two images of a father and daughter, a classic treatment seemed best suited. Et quant aux deux images suivantes, un traitement classique m’a paru le plus approprié.

I enjoyed putting a gif together from the sequence of photos of this little magic moments. The last one is my favourite of the series. All these photos link back to my portfolio site chevaugeonphoto.com, page “Here and There”.

J’ai aimé créer un gif à partir de la séquence de photos de ce petit moments magique…C’est la dernière que je préfère de cette séquence. Toutes ces photos contiennent un lien vers mon site chevaugeonphoto.com, section “Here and There” (page “Ici et Là).
