Fine Art Photos

As someone who has his roots in press photography, I never cared enough about fine art photography to really explore it. In addition, I never had enough time to fiddle around with the settings to create stunning black & white photos from color images.

But recently I had a bit of time on my hands and did a few experiments with black & white stuff in Lightroom. Guess what? I love the results – they certainly qualify for the huge poster print (as you can imagine, all the beautiful details do not stick out on the small previews below).

Cinema Pellegrini – I found this entrance to an abandoned movie house in the small town of Luino, Italy. It triggered visions of the past. I envisioned people queueing in front of the entrance gate, maybe waiting to see a popular Nouvelle Vague film. Boys and girls excited to find the protection of the darkness of a cinema, a protection the local church would not provide. Yet, all that’s left from these times are closed gates and a damaged neon sign with the name of the cinema.
