Contemplation Of Form

I like the composition of the negative spatial relationship and the usage of the cool hues of these photos. Guy Sargent framed the grand subject within the lens by capturing the beautiful stillness of architectures and nature. He traveled through Ireland, England, Italy, and France, using a 4x5 large format camera on colored negatives with long exposure to capture these high contrasting photos. Guy is a British photographer from London who is self-taught and is inspired by painters, Velazquez, Turner and Rembrandt.
