I really like this minamalistic image. Love the curving lines, tones and space.

Like this a lot. My reflex reaction with an image like this would be to crop to square, but looking at this the cool, pale space on the right works.

What is it, very simple actually.

The original series was titled "paper and light" which is a big clue.

So in essence all they ever consisted of was either a background piece of paper,as in this one, and a light source, in this case natural light. Some of the others used a lightbox as the background which caused the change in light from bright to shadow to occur on each separate strip. And the paper is just arranged to create an image.

22 votes. Ludicrous! Great example of light, lines and composition. Nice job.

Thanks Howard, to be honest black and whites rarely do well and add to that the fact it is pieces of paper then it's not everyones "cup of tea".

Can say it is quite good fun on a wet day when other styles of photography are not possible to give this sort of thing a go. People think still lifes are easy but they are probably amongst the hardest subjects as the only person to blame for a poor result is yourself.

Beautiful in its simplicity and ambiguity - it could be so many things...and I could spend a very long time seeing different things in it, despite its minimalism!
