Some Call It Art: My Struggle with Modern Art

As a child my parents took me to a modern art exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum. I tried to understand why so many paintings and other art objects were considered to be good or innovative. Why? Even as a child I decided if could easily make a comparable piece, it can't be that good. In contrast was the work of Alexander Calder at the same exhibit. It was sweeping in scope, stunning in its complexity. Kinetic and engaging. And to this day I remember nearly everything I saw that day in the Calder exhibit. My submission is just a sticker on a wall. Yet I've seen similar images in museums valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars. Mine is for sale if you have the money.

2022 42 BlackAndWhiteMinimalism 1069 marco ciavolino2 post

Assignment

This week we're combining two distinct genres to form Black and White Minimalism. Black and White photos, by virtue of having a LACK of all color, inherently feel a little minimalistic. Using a composition that's minimalistic, like having negative space, really adds to this unique shooting style. Black and White minimalism usually yields a very clean and clutter-free aesthetic. A strong subject will draw the viewer's eye, and a lot of negative space around your subject will support the main "star" of your frame. You can create minimalism with negative space, and you can also use light and shadow by only lighting your main subject and leaving the rest of the frame in shadow (low key) or by lighting your background bright as well to create a high-key look. But, in particular for this challenge, do remember that: Less Is More :)
