Anne Brigman

So for my lenticular vision paper, I am now going to write about Anne Brigman. Brigman was a photographer in the early 1900s and was a part of Alfred Stiegletz's Photo-Secession Movement. She was known to get very attached the locations where she took her pictures and would spend weeks there at a time. Her work in the Sierra Nevada mountains appears to be influenced by pagan mythology, European Romanticism, and the native beliefs of the Hawaiian people. She liked to think of her work as people AS nature, as opposed to people IN nature.

Henk van Rensbergen

So last week I came across this website, Abandoned Places.com (http://www.abandoned-places.com/), which features the work of Henk van Rensbergen. I thought it was interesting that his whole career consists of finding abandoned places to photograph. Personally, I like his black and white stuff better, but I tried to pick some color photos, too. These are some of my favorites that I found.

Abandoned Places

My final project for Color class is "Abandoned Places," so for this week I decided to look up "abandoned places."

Henk van Rensbergen

I love the creepy orange light/tones and how clear the view from the window is.

I love the depth in this one.

S. Marshall

This one also has great depth and perspective.

I really like the view in this one.

I love the curve in this one and the depth and textures.

Photos that ask questions?

I wasn't really sure what to look up as a reference to the colorworks show, so I just picked a bunch of photos that I liked in hopes that they fit the topic.

I love the creepiness of this photo with the green color scheme and the shadows and the strange pose.

I like this one because of the colors...that's about it...

I like how this one is still a great portrait even though it's zoomed out. I also like all the lines going back into space.

I think this one is adorable and I love the composition.

PEACE! haha XD
I just thought this one was funny and I like the angle it was shot at.

This one is my favorite photo that I'm posting this week. I love the contrast and I love the composition. It's a very strange and unusual photograph, which is why I think I like it so much.

Mixed Light

I like the bright yellow/white lights against the dark blue sky.

I think the lights from the sign look very interesting and really stand out from everything else. I also like the curve of the building and the ledge that the sign is on and I love the perspective.

I love the sun and how much it seems to stand out. I also like the way the models are the lit up against the darker background.

I love the yellow glow that the lightbulb gives off against the cool blue sky. I also think the shape of the building is very interesting.

I love the calm color scheme in this one and I like how the windows aren't too bright and overpowering compared to the lighting in the rest of the room.
