The amazing BW photography of Damien Vassart
Happy Friday everyone and have a nice weekend ahead! To give you plenty of reading and viewing material for the weekend on Friday’s we’ll be having three articles, at least for August!
We’ll be starting our day with photography, but unlike Wednesday’s photo inspirations which are theme oriented, on Friday’s we’ll be focusing on the work of a single photographer. Today we have with us 20 amazing black and white photographs by Damien Vassart.
In 2007, photography became a new expression medium for him. His preference goes to black and white, although color also owns a place in his universe. Cityscapes and waterscapes have become his predilection themes, skillfully highlighted in surrealist pictures, inviting the observer to contemplation and meditation.
Beyond a simple aesthetic side, the art of Damien Vassart is also driven by his fascination for passing time, and impacts it has upon the natural and non-natural elements that make part of the world surrounding us. So as to transcribe that, he uses extended exposure times for his takes, most of the time released at dawn or at dusk, moments of transition, moments of switching from one state to another, between agitation and tranquility, that he considers as the most propitious to capture the time.
His pictures have already been published several times in magazines and across the Web, and permitted him to win several international awards. They are diffused around the world by various art distribution networks.
Let’s see our selection and of course you can visit and see more of his work in his Behance portfolio!
