Pearly Winter. Impressionism
Photograph - Photography
The spring is lost somewhere on the way to us, its already March 23 and we have -15-20 and plenty of snow..
But how I could do such images without winter? :-)
It's easy to think of photography vs. painting in terms of reality vs. a transformed version of reality, but that's deceptive. For the Impressionist painters photography could tell them what something looked like, but not how one saw it. Early black and white photographs were a record of what was at the moment the photo was taken, but it couldn't come close to replicating the experience of seeing.
The Impressionists, each in his own way, were challenged by the problem of capturing the fleeting moment of seeing, of bringing painting into the present tense from the past tense where it had dwelled from earliest times.
The impressionist photography stimulates the mind power to imagine what the artist wanted to suggest. This photography style lets your imagination flow, and recalls sentiments like nostalgia, melancholy or relaxation.
