Monday Photo Minimalism ~ Deconstructing The Kiss

Rodin’s The Kiss. Being in the Rodin Museum in Paris gave me an opportunity to try to ratchet down photographically to the essence of this sculpture. As a whole, it is absolutely stunning

But to take away from the whole, as hard as that was, made it even more beautiful


to see limbs, muscles, the nuance of a body, was an exercise in removing the “extraneous”, as a sculptor does until he has the image come forth out of a block of stone.

Taking away to see the essence in photography is not easy at times.

    Nice work, Angeline. I like the subtle lighting in the last photo.

    Of course, there are many ways of eliminating information in photography… but it seems dangerous somehow, to compare one media to another. Among the ways to reach simplicity in photos is the use of high contrast, the reduction of color, and of course, using a minimum of pixels. For a while I photographed with very low definition. I would print the prints quite large, by a process of creating more pixels that were like those already in the file… Ultimately though, I liked high definition better, using light and other variables to influence my photography.


  3. Well, that was interesting.
