Your use of dark, muted colors and collage effects is stunning. How does color affect the impact of a photograph for you? Thank you! To me, color definitely affects the emotion and mood of a photograph. When you have a dark or black and white photograph, you’re telling the viewer “here are some details I’d like you to focus on. Here are some feelings you need to pay attention to.” With dark colors I can get a more somber, deeper mood that is more emotional than bright colors. But bright colors are useful as well; when you use really brilliant ones they speak to the viewer as something joyful and full of passion, something that needs to be celebrated. What do you think text adds to a photograph? I think text adds a second dimension to a photograph. It adds another layer of feeling and depth to a piece, and it can give hints to the purpose of the piece or to what the photographer was feeling at the moment in which they created that piece. Text can make a photograph more poetic and revealing, and I think the combination of text and photo makes any work more fascinating.
