I would concur with everything Richard has expressed. Wonderful series! I would also add the industrial flavour brings out a fascination of the highlighted pipes and guages, filters and machine parts that seems quite prevalent in men. A curiosity and sometimes burning desire to know what it is and how it works, and of course for those familiar, a comfort in knowing and loving the machine, and then equally sometimes detesting everything it stands for. Great subject matter delivered flawlessly.
Wolfgang, What a wonderful series of industrial images, the toning of the images adds to their character and is appropriate. They are simple and convey a real sense of the nature of Industry.
Great to see a cohesive body of work like this.
Great work Cheers Richard
many thanks for your comments. @Alf: you've exactly reflected my thoughts: it's both a fascination for the complex machinery (impossible for the layman to get an idea of purpose an function of the elements) and a feeling of a menace by the machines (creating an environment hostile to any life).
Striking, as is the entire series. I particularly like the way the light accentuates the wheels and the arm. Industrial elegance.
Unbelievable how intersting and esthetic this series of INDUSTRIAL parts are! usually industry does not look beautiful but with a trained eye and the right "cut",adding the right light and angle ... no more needed! Very very nice series.
A beautiful composition with very nice lighting, Wolfgang!
Nice work. You've imbued these machines with a great energy. The round handles here, catching the light and standing out from the darker toning, are like stars, graphic punctuation marks which serve a similar purpose to painters like Jasper Johns who incorporated letters, words, and numbers in their painting styles. You find a way to make a photographic creation out of a bit of everyday and much ordinary life, or still life. These are also rhythmic pieces.
Pnina, Ruud, Fred,
a bit delayed but nevertheless: big thanks for your comments - I'm happy you like my series.
