Wendel Wirth photographs

My relentless obsession of both photography and minimalism led me to layer a block of color on top of the image, essentially hiding a piece of it. I became deeply curious about the relationship between photography and minimalism; how we see and how we experience both an image and an art form. I found that combining the two adds a sense of movement and in turn, alludes to cinema and its heightened narrative. The color blocks, each playing a unique roll amongst its black and white counterpart, inject character and complexity to the work, asking the viewer to experience the image differently while ultimately commenting on photography as an art form.
