Original Art Photography Series by @velimir #148 'The Crack'
The name of this art photograph is: 'The Crack'
Grey sad road under fat white clouds. Nothing can hide under their white dispersed light. Even though this is a simple oil spill, we walked passed so many times, it doesn't mean that there is no beauty in it. When I look at this, I feel as if the circle is sucking me in, almost hypnotically and I have no wish to fight it. I prefer to let go and stay in the feeling. Try looking at it for some time and let me know how does it work for you.
A closed central composition of a circle, made of rainbow colours, immediately catches attention and drags us to its depth. As far as colours are concerned, I love the top part of the image virtually colour-free, while the rest of it brims with tame hues enveloping each other. The outer rim of the circle consisting of cold blue and turquoise is spreading all the way to the bottom edge of the frame. But, when we follow the progression toward the centre, blue changes into green, then yellow, orange, purple and back to blue. What I find most interesting is the warm colour spot in the very middle.
Why did I name it like this? Well... Take a closer look at the photograph. The crack at the top left is pointing toward the centre and benefits composition with quite a bit of depth. Do you feel that? One simply cannot overlook its significance. Without this "perfect" imperfection the image would simply be to lean, to clean and too direct. Thus, I named it after the crack to point it out an, also, to deliberately divert the observer's attention from the main element as it is already dominant at the first glance.
Note the pointillist structure. The whole image appears as if painted with very small pin-pointed strokes of a brush resembling neo-impressionists. Paul Signac is my favourite artist who painted in this manner. He and Georges Seurat led the movement. Check out his work if you have no clue what I'm talking about. :D
