“Being a fine art photographer I often have to make arguments as to why photography is just as much an art form as painting or sculpting. Some seems to forget that photography can be dated back several centuries with the invention of the camera obscura. The first successful photograph as we know in modern day is “View from the Window at Le Gras” in 1826 or 1827 by Nicephore Niepce.
I have spent years experimenting in the artistic field of my passion and try to implement monochrome photography in my work as often as possible. I find that light and dark and the interplay between the two contrasting elements can be more interesting to focus on than color relationships. I consider monochrome photography not as a technical limitation but as a creative choice. It lends a certain timeless quality to the images.”
