Urban contrasts

Introducing another site to Rio de Janeiro. Leaving the city and its parks behind, there is the sea with its many charms and timelessness.

Urban contrasts - colour and structure

Building on my series about contrast in the urban setting in Rio de Janeiro, this photo stands for its strong urban and historic feel, bearing witness of times long gone and a hint of the modern times that have followed.

Urban contrasts - colour and structure

This photo is the beginning of a new series in which I will be looking at building a narrative using contrasting images. One of the themes that fascinate me in cities is contrasts. Rio de Janeiro is a city I know well and which is full of contrasts. Developing the theme over the next weeks, my first impression is about colours, structures and nature. To me tropical trees and flowers are a subject, I can never get enough of.

Animal portrait

Adding to my series of animal portraits, this is the last photo of the series. The animal studies are part of a little project I did, trying to capture the characteristics of the animal as I observed them from up close while taking into consideration the environment and light.

Animal portrait

Staying with my mini series on animal portraits, this photo is part of some work I did on animal photography exploring how to take a photo of a specific animal that reflected on its characteristics.

Animal portrait

Reflecting on my past blog entries, I noticed that I mainly worked with individual photos and thought, I try something new,  to develop the same theme and build up a small series. And I decided to make my first series about animal portraits. So, building up from the animal portrait I published last week, here comes the bear.

Change of Season

Two months to go until I complete one year of documenting how the change of season affects the park and its visitors. As London prepares for yet another winter, nature and people change their 'dress'. And with the season there is a visable change in light and colour, as I could notice this morning when I had to turn up the ISO considerably to make sure I could still capture the scene as my eyes saw it.

Animal portrait

Animal portraits are not the most regular of my practice, but I do enjoy taking photos of animals. It probably has to do with all those wonderful photo books I used to look at as a child. In my mind travelling around the world, seeing the most amazing of animals. Now, what I'm left with is the wish to create this and that image which reminds me of those photos.
