modernist photgraphy

“form follows function”

modernism - what i like the most about modernism is one of the same reasons that i like ikea furniture.. the simplicity. Moving away from pictorialism, i like the sharp, high contrast black and white images that focus on shape, form and perspective like Paul Strands “Wall street, New York, 1913” i like the focus on the shapes and contrast in the city and its something that i would like to do more off with my own photography when i shoot around the city.

the above is something i shot at random when i was had a walk about the rocks and overseas passenger terminal and i loved the lines and shape and simplicity of the framework of the building and the shadows worked quite well given it was shot during the middle of day
