Victorian garden architecture in contemporary photography by Andrea Vicentini

Could Victorian parks in London be a subject of contemporary photography? They can. In photographs of Andrea Vicentini from Italy. In his series “Senteza di Massa – The judgement of the mass” the photographer refers to rules of Victorian garden planning: the the creation of contrast, the installation of surprise, the concealment of the borders. Seen from this angle the garden is, in mediative black and white images of Vicentini, a personal place, able to communicate emotions and feelings. The works of art are on display at ’96 Metri Cubi d’arte’ in Milano till March, 19. ‘Sentenza di Massa’ series comprises 11 pictures ranging from 15×22 up to 110X165 cm printed on Photo Rag® Bright White, mounted on Dibond and wooden framed. We are honoured to host an interview with Andrea here on our blog.

Black & White in reduction and perfection – interview with photographer Joerg Karrenbauer

The photographic gaze focuses on the significant pixel; the visual sense reduced perception to black, white and all shades of grey. In this way monochromatic images with a timeless, surreal and sometimes monumental character arises. Joerg Karrenbauer, photographer and curator from Saarbrücken (Germany), photographs exclusively in black and white and prints his works superbly on Hahnemühle paper. We cooperate with the artist who successfully participates in international competitions and exhibits. The video for our Hahnemühle FineArt Inkjet Leather Albums is a joint creation and we collaborated in the new packaging image for our Certificates of Authenticity. Now we have asked Joerg Karrenbauer for an interview.
