When you take a photo, do you keep the exact raw image you took? Or do you edit it to how you want to remember that moment? This project titled “Contructed” by Pawel Nolbert is concepted around this exact thought. He raises questions like:
“Where does the “photo” end and “graphy” begin? The use of what tools make it a photography, and distinct it from a graphic? Does it make sense to create that distinction anymore?” – Pawel Nolbert
Each of us, especially creatives, have our own unique, personal style that we abide by in our work and social feeds. Maybe it’s lots of color, lots of white, or simplicity, with a wide range of subject matters from landscapes, to cooking, to painting, etc.
I saw how I did this a few times with my recent trip to Portland when I was taking and editing some photos along the way. Of course bright colors and crisp whites came into mine!
I love this take Pawel has incorporated into his and how he uses the architecture and the negative space to play and reflect off of each other in the photo.
