Subtle Images

July 27, 2012 § 2 Comments

Lately I’ve been inspired by the work of photographers who create barebone images – where at first glance not much seems to be going on, where they’re stripped down and up close, where the story is a little more subtle.

Brian Mancl from Chicago usually has just one subject in his pieces, sometimes even just one line – vertical, arc, or horizontal.

I really like how the texture of Michael A. Muller’s subjects are so palpable in this post.

I also like his details in this photo shoot of a leather crafts studio and this one of the design team L A N D.

Selling at $4.3 million, “Rhein II” by Andreas Gursky is the most expensive photo in the world.

A nod to simplicity.
