The Sea in All States, Through the Eyes of Exceptional Photographers
The lapping of the waves, the rippling of the foam, the cry of gulls… With no more than these sparse images, we already guess the theme: a dream landscape of the sea, as seen from the shore.
Nowadays, the maritime landscape is a favourite in the field of art photography. Beyond simply an art designed for exhibition openings, maritime landscapes invade interior decoration, providing soothing tranquillity.
At YellowKorner, marine photography aims to be both trendy and timeless. Three professional photographers stand out in this regard: Magnaldo, Silver, and Khomenko.
Light, black and white, and the spirit far from shore are all elements that can be observed when admiring the marine photographs created by Alastair Magnaldo. Mainly using various shades of grey, he adds just a hint of colour to reinforce the luminosity of his masterpieces. If we look closely, we realise that his desire for abstract art provides him with a deep personal objective. No doubt because this artist started learning about art photography at a very young age.
As for Richard Silver, he seeks his inspiration through the rich diversity of his extensive travel. 2001 was a stand-out year for the artist, who set out to explore the world with the sole aim of revealing the beauty of the beach, the sea, and the maritime landscape. We note in this respect that his collection is full of quite a number of tourist hot-spots, but viewed in new ways.
Articulated around legends and tales full of whimsy, the dream seascape created by Ukrainian photographer Maryna Khomenko lets our mind wander. A profusion of well-dosed colour set against a marine backdrop invites the spectator to discover what each of her marine photographs conceals. Unlike a reporter, the artist places way-markers around her artworks. There is no room for error. A true professional, she manipulates applications and software with a sure hand. Combined with her seasoned eye, the result is spectacular. Beach, sea, waves, and sand, each detail is seen and seen again under a magnifying glass.
