Steel forest / Jekleni gozd

Category : Black & White, Urban photography · by Apr 28th, 2015

I always enjoyed nature, beautiful landscapes in vivid color and deep green forests, but as a photographer I am more drawn to urban scenery, industrial landscapes and concrete jungle. It is something about that cold, harsh aesthetics of steel, iron and concrete that inspire me. Every time I visit a place like this, it takes me back to my highshool years when I first read Huxley’s prediction of the “Brave new world” and his cold vision of our future. When viewing the scene in person it felt as a whole and it didn’t appear like this at all. I have to stress that photography has great power to abstract the scene out of context and depict it in an exaggerated and more dramatic way. And that is what I did here. It could be seen as a warning that today, the brave new world Huxley wrote about, could be just a matter of our perspective…

Vedno sem užival v naravi, čudovitih pokrajinah v živih barvah in zelenih gozdovih, vendar me kot fotografa bolj vleče k urbanemu okolju, industrijskih pokrajinah in betonski džungli. Nekaj vidim v tej hladni in grobi estetiki jekla, železa in betona, ki me navdihuje. Vsakokrat, ko obiščem tak prostor, me spomin popelje v srednješolska leta, ko sem bral Huxleyev “Krasni novi svet” in njegovo hladno vizijo naše prihodnosti. Ko sem gledal prizor v živo, nikakor ni deloval tako, kot deluje na fotografiji. Moram poudariti, da ima fotografijo veliko moč izvleči prizor iz konteksta in ga naslikati na pretiran in bolj dramatičen način. In to sem naredil tukaj. Lahko bi temu rekli zgolj opozorilo, da je danes Huxleyev krasni novi svet lahko le stvar naše perspektive…

Do naslednjič,
Luka

 

P.S. If you have an industrial photo to share, please leave a link to your website or blog in my comments. I will take a look at more industrial landscapes with greatest interest.

P.S. Če imate kakšno fotografijo industrijske pokrajine ipd, prosim pustite povezavo do svoje strani ali bloga v komentarjih. Z največjim zanimanjem bi si ogledal različne upodobitve industrijskih fotografij.
