PHOTOGRAPHY: ‘BLACK’ BY DENNIS VELDMAN
Posted on May 20, 2012
After numerous threats of ‘whipping’ and ‘cracking’ various parts of my anatomy, Dennis Veldman finally got his own way and left me with no choice but to upload his mesmerising, beautiful but foreboding shoot entitled ‘Black’ today (instead of tomorrow). Check it out!
Veldman has channeled his inner demons into these shots & the results are stunning. The slight grain & severely black and white fabrication of the final photographs accomplish Veldman’s aim of replicating the ominous feelings from his “dark days”. The ferocity captured in the eyes of his subjects is slightly obscured by the veil of hair concealing their faces, yet the intensity of their focus is so high it is almost as if the models see beyond the lens, & penetrate the very depths of your soul.
