The name of this art photograph is: 'Yellow Ghost Car'
'Taxi Driver' comes to mind when I look at this one. You remember that old film with Robert De Niro and Jodie Foster? I guess what does it could be the expressive roughness and the yellow car reminiscing of De Niro's cab and his awesome role. If some of you younger people haven't seen that one, download it. It is one of the "oldies but goldies" from the seventies. Not sure, but I think it got Golden Palm at Cannes.
This photograph of a yellow ghost car, as is usually the case with the best ones, came out beyond my expectations. It was a double exposure taken in a single take, what is quite a rare achievement since the car was moving. None of this was composited in Photoshop but was snapped on the street as is. The rough surfaces are juxtaposed to the slightly blurred yellow car, appearing as if beaming out of some invisible dimension. The depth of field is interesting to observe, as it was created as an outcome of both expositions. We can observe a mix, creating a single symphony of focused and unfocused parts in the composition. The focus is still exactly where it should be and plays a major role.
The yellow and orange are quite saturated compared to the rest of an even-toned surrounding. Bluish and green even the balance a bit, but not enough to overtake the warm feeling. The real colour rivalry happens between the dark orange and yellow. Their mutual dependence dominates the image. The rest is quite desaturated, letting the yellow car become the centre of attention. The photography is composed of many smaller elements which all work together in creating some sort of a rough but contained feeling.
- "You talkin' to me?" :D (watch the movie)
I thought of pasting that legendary scene from youtube but better if you watch the entire thing.
