Favourite Photographers: Ori Gersht.

One of my absolute favourite series of photographs is 'Rear Window' by Ori Gersht. Shot through the same window at different times of the year and at varying times throughout the day, the images show the ever changing skies that sit calmly above bustling London.
With no fancy schmancy filters or editing used, the images are completely natural and capture the true beauty of the skies above us that we may not notice as we go about our daily lives. This in turn somewhat challenges our relationship with the surroundings that we may consider to be completely familiar.
If the theory or meaning behind the images isn't really your cup of tea, there's simply no denying that visually they're all completely beautiful and manage to capture a lovely sequence of events while ensuring they keep every single drop of their charm and magic.
Ori Gersht is a huge inspiration to me and if I could one day take a photograph that's even half as beautiful as one of his pieces then I'd be a very happy Jennie indeed!

  6. These are absolutely gorgeous. They remind me a little bit of Mark Rothko's later art, but less abstracted/ more grounded in the "realness" of the world. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Wow that is amazing. What a great idea! I'm rubbish at "photography" but I think it would be really cool to do something like this.
