Introduction: Art in Entropy
Today I would like to introduce you to a blog that I’ve been watching for quite some time. I found this blog in the reader and then started following it to see if it would be a good blog for me to introduce you to. The blog is Art in Entropy and it is full of images that most photographers wish they had in their folders. They are those sort of images that I find myself thinking, “I wish I had taken them.”
Abandonment is a big theme for many photographers, and those that don’t do it feel like they should. I suspect nearly every photographer out there has had at some stage taken photos of an abandoned building, even me, and those that haven’t are looking for one.
The colours are amazing, almost desaturated, but there is still that pop of colour here and there in the photos. The overall colour is like a sepia photograph, giving the impression that the scenes are very old. It works really well.
There is something very dramatic about them as well. It is almost like they were staged, set up. I don’t know if they were or not, but like the distribution of artifacts all over the floor. It gives it a sense of theatre, like a story is about to unfold, but we don’t know what that story is.
Then in other images there is an ordered chaos almost. There are things all around, but it almost like they were merely placed there, like they were being stored or something.
Most photos are taken indoors, but there are the old few, with the same theme, but taken outside. There is the abandoned feel to nature, what is left behind and forgotten until a photographer stumbles upon them.
There is a definite style to the work here, and they all look like they belong to the same person. It is a wonderful body of work.
I did have permission to feature the work here and I would like to thank Art in Entropy for allowing me to showcase their work. I’m sure you will all like it and I do hope you will go and visit his blog, Art in Entropy, where you will find even more amazing work. I have a gallery for you now.
