The difficult thing about articles about photographers is always to find a suitable story or anecdote. Of course, one could rave about how great the composition is, why the viewing angle is perfect the way it is, how which emotion is evoked and why the golden ratio still has nothing to do with sliced sausage. But somehow these are just subjective perceptions and opinions and we all know: opinions are like assholes – everyone has one.
In the end, that’s a shame, there are quite a lot of photographers who take great pictures, but you can only put a few lines on digital paper, which I basically resist. In the best case of bad cases, you have at least written a bit of text that doesn’t really have much to do with the photographer himself, but goes beyond the two lines. Like this one.
The photographer in this case is Alan Schaller, who lives in London, who takes wonderful black and white photos and has a really good eye for light, shadow and contrast. Or to put it very simply: I really like his pictures.
There is even more of his work here and if you want to invest your Christmas bonus, you can buy one or the other print for your home.
