Textures and surfaces

brick work

Photography although being essentially a two dimensional medium is great to portray textures and surfaces with. (I have a feeling that this threaten to be a rambling post as I want to put certain thoughts I have about photography into words, I’ll do my best to keep it short…) I often see photographs as thin strips of the surface of what we see, as if the tree dimensional scene in front of us is strapped off its skin that becomes a photo instead, the unrepeatable moment flattened out but seemingly not so because when you look at a photo you look beyond its surface. So the dichotomy of a flat surface that presents a surface with a surface interests me. Not to speak about the beauty of textures, reflections and shadows in themselves, they fascinate me.
