18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Less is More / Composition #7

My Cage The number 8 brings luck in Asia. What about these 8 containment weeks? My creativity was pushed to the limit. Collecting raw material inside a 1 km circle during 1 hour max each day. Same place. I remembered the fantastic Cage series consisting of 6 large canvases by Gerhard Richter, back in 2006. Verticality does what horizontality undoes. Indeed, I miss the horizon of our seascape. Nature is in good shape with a beautiful green not echoed by blue water. The 2 dimensions build a mental structure in my brain in order to create images full of the true colors of the true life. One picture a week, reaching the magic number of 8 by the end. Less is More.
