Winterly Haiku – Andrei Baciu
I love “discovering” new ways of seeing through the eyes of other artists. This morning I was captivated by the work of Andrei Baciu from Romania. You must have a look at his Gallery Winterly Haiki.
I discovered his work through my subscription at LensWork Online. Brooks Jenson, publisher of LensWork magazine (the premier periodical for the art of black and white photography), has also created this parallel community where just about all of LensWork is shared online – including Readers’ PDF Galleries, where I first saw Andrei’s work beautifully presented in a PDF gallery.
The beauty of Andrei’s work is in its simplicity. I have no idea what camera system he is using to create such beautiful photographs, but it could be just about anything. He has pared each scene down to its minimum to allow the negative space itself to speak. If you are serious about photography – have a look at his work as it is a reminder to us all that it’s not pixels that speak, it’s the poetry of the image.
