The Art of Black and White Photography by Joel Tjintjelaar

I’m not out on capturing reality as we all can see or experience – If there wouldn’t be any doubt in my mind that there’s such thing like objective reality. In any case, I’m simply not interested in that. Sometimes I’m out on expressing a mood or just simply beauty, but always according my inner vision. I really prefer to express beauty, since I think that’s the most profound meaning of a photograph. I very rarely try to convey a message. My favorite subjects are architecture and landscapes using long exposure techniques and also still life and portraiture work using studio lighting. Lately I’ve been inspired by architecture so I tend to focus on looking for architectural objects that in some way represents the idea that beauty can be found in mathematics. Goethe once said that architecture is frozen music. I like that quote. Both architecture and music are based on mathematics. So why not combine both?
