Whilst on holiday in The Algarve, I stumbled upon an exhibition of Manual Alexandre’s work in a museum in Lagos.
His black and white images are very atmospheric showing an infinity of depth as he focuses on his foreground subject matter and lets the background ‘melt’ into white. Many of his photographs feature rivers or the sea, and harsh/strong reflections of the subject matter. The images evoke a sense of stillness and calm.
This style is very different to my own. At some point, I’d like to emulate this work – though I’m not sure I’d capture the same air of tranquility and beauty in my part of England!
