I can’t say that I’m very good at choosing artwork. Indeed all the things that I like are usually Holbein, Winterhalter, and Vermeer portraits. If you Google those artists you will see why they are not exactly the usual minimalist prints of mainstream choice.
However, when something modern and photo based catches my eye it’s pretty significant, so I’m really happy to show you my only second photo purchase of someone else’s work.
This is a print from a chap I follow on Instagram called Brodie Clark (2kuu.co).
In case it wasn’t obvious, the scene is just a city scape of the Melbourne skyline and the Yarra River. I have no particular affinity or connection with Melbourne city personally, but I just really like the contrast between the skyline in silhouette and the brightness of the sunset. I find the dark really rich and inviting, and contrasts really well with the crisp sky and clean lines against the buildings.
Brodie’s Instagram page is here, and his Tumblr website is here. I’ve followed him for a few months only, but I really like the gritty, realistic tone to his photography. It’s the complete opposite to a lot of wedding photography, which is all about lightness and fairy-like qualities, so for me visually it’s very refreshing to view his work.
If you happen to like any of his photographs or his work in general then I highly suggest *wink wink* you contact him, purchase a print or two, enquire his creative ideas, and see what he can do with and for you artistically.
Thanks so much for the print again, Brodie!
Quick blogging notice: my host mum from Japan is making a quick visit to us on Tuesday, so I won’t be posting anything on Wednesday, but I’ll be back on Friday with a few photos from the first wedding I shot of 2017 for Adrian and Barbara!
