Photographs like paintings
While the composition of pictorial elements is usually in the foreground with minimalist photographers, it is often these compositions that trigger the viewer’s association with a painting. Sometimes they are deliberate allusions to modern paintings. But always the effect is supported by the special printing process of our limited Fine Art Prints.
1. Jon Setter – Mondrian-Esque Photography
Jon Setter was born in Detroit, Michigan (1989) and lives in Sydney, Australia. Setter’s work is part of an ongoing investigation that seeks to uncover the invisible aspects that shape our experience of urban spaces and architecture. He often works with themes he discovered by chance on spontaneous walks, documenting from peculiar angles the details people usually pass by to create constructivist artworks. His photograph “Mondrian-Esque 1” is a deliberate allusion to Piet Mondrian’s painting “Composition with Red, Yellow, Blue and Black”
