Experiencing Space and Color

October 13, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

In a review of a book on the Ganges River, Conor Risch writes that the photographer, Caleb Cain Marcus "uses photography to question how we experience space and color, and how both the seen and unseen may influence our lives."  Wow.  The photos included in the article in the November 2015 editor of PDN News are unlike most photos you've seen of India (including mine). The colors are very subtle, the use of white space immense. As Caleb is quoted, "I'm interested in the potential way that space can be experienced" rather than a literal representation. Pollution, haze, air. Air in particular can differ from place to place and space to space. And showing that difference through fine tuning of a photograph is a key component of Marcus' work. You can see examples of his work at: http://www.calebcainmarcus.com/ .

This is part of a series of posts on alternative ways of viewing, experiencing, visioning, and creating. For that's what creative photography is all about.
