PHOTOGRAPHY AND ART

BROKEN  MIRRORS
Not always a broken mirror is synonymous with disgrace. It is certainly not for Bing Wright, an expert photographer from New York, who has made a whole exhibition based on photographs of reflected landscapes, precisely, on shattered mirrors.

     
The result is truly surprising so that, initially, one can think that the landscapes have been taken up through broken windows, creating an effect very similar to that of the artistic windows of the churches.

           
In reality it seems that the photographer has projected some of his pictures taken previously on broken mirrors and arranged artfully in his studio. The impression we get from it is amazing: the natural elements (skies, clouds, trees) appear to be "staggered" because of the cracks and our mind is forced to slowly reconstruct the real image. Even the color combinations (the orange of the sunsets predominates) strikes, at the first impact, more than the composition of the subject.

               
An original and refined work, which sets reason and intuition together.
