Abstract Black & White Street Photo Wins 'Photo Of The Week' Title : Out of the Shadows

'Out of the Shadows' by PaulSwinney has been chosen as our Photo of the Week (POTW) this week on ePHOTOzine.

With its creative mix of light and shadow, a London street takes on an abstract twist with shapes and lines creating an attention-grabbing, street-style photo. 


One image can change us.

A picture, a moment can change the way we feel. Change how we see ourselves. Change our understanding and change the rules. Provoke and change history.

MPB Gear

MPB puts photo and video kit into more hands, more sustainably. Every month, visual storytellers sell more than 20,000 cameras and lenses to MPB. Choose used and get affordable access to kit that doesn’t cost the earth.

Sell the kit you’re not using to MPB. Trade in for the kit you need to create. Buy used, spend less and get more.

Buy. Sell. Trade. Create.

The long shadow of the subject draws the eye up the image to the person who's framed by light while the lines surrounding him compliment the angle/direction. The use of monotone shades make the abstractness of this shot even stronger as the eye is able to really concentrate on shape/form rather than subject. 

It's a great example of creative street photography that the whole team really like and it goes to show how a little observation can go a really long way!

Well done Paul - excellent capture. 

POTW winners will receive a Samsung EVO Plus 64GB MicroSDXC card with SD Adapter.
