Fragments and Scenes

Random fragmentary memories from the North of Italy. I quite like using small contextless fragmentary images as opposed to something with more context and depth. The image becomes more about the texture and pattern than the content.

I like that the fragments are completely detached – but even more contextualised images (such as the ones below) can be sufficiently alien to take on a similar character if the view is not familiar with the area being photographed and the subjects are not well known:

All images were taken with the 50mm f1.2 fitted with a polariser. An extension tube was used for the blackberries (on their way to becoming jam…). The church fresco was shot as a panorama to increase resolution prior to some fairly substantial perspective correction in Lightroom.
