Fifteenth Post: Contemporary Influences
who / where / when: Andrew Kua, unsure where, 2008.
what: I feel the actual picture of the building is second to the idea of the negatives and the set up. However, I do think the building is pretty cool and I think the lines are very pleasing. I like how the whole photo is tinted blue because it adds to the negative effect. The random line of negatives coming out of the bottom is sort of annoying, I think it would look better if there was a line going across the bottom instead of one jutting out.
why: This photo is very mysterious. You can’t see the entire bottom half of the picture so you naturally look more to the sky (which is beautiful). I feel the main point in the photo was the “coolness” of the negatives and the why of the actual photo is lost.
how: This photo was taken digitally and is a double exposure. The photographer probably scanned the negatives and used them as one layer and then used the photo of the building as another layer. There is a guide of how he did it on his blog, but unfortunately the link is blocked. 😦
