Monochrome Perspectives.

July 2022

Taunus Foto Galerie welcomes Adriano Henney, the next photographer in our series Monochrome Perspectives.

Adriano is Italian and British and was born in Venice. He spent a lot of time there with his family, and the exhibition Venice | Beyond the Mask shows those parts of the city where Venetians live and work, away from the crowds.

Images by Paul Sanders, Konrad Bartelski, Rachael Talibart, Daniel Dencescu, Michelle Magdalena Maddox, Oliver G. Miller and Roman Loranc remain on display. Oliver’s images are also exhibited in the casino in Bad Homburg

Paul Sanders was picture editor at The Times. Following a nervous breakdown, he saw his recovery reflected in the daily survival struggle of common flowers. His images are largely self-portraits.

Konrad Bartelski was Britain’s pioneering downhill skier, taking part in three Winter Olympics. Since then he has spent a lot of time in mountains and snow, accompanied by a camera, appreciating beauty, stunning views and loving the solitude, the perspective of space and tranquility.

Rachael Talibart is a professional seascape and coastal photographer whose critically acclaimed photographs have been featured in the press worldwide. Rachael’s Sirens series embodies hidden figures that seem to emerge from the water. Inspired by Homer’s Odyssey, Rachael gives each image the name of a mythological god or goddess.

Daniel Dencescu is showing his images of starling murmurations, for which he won the Minimalist Photographer of the Year 2022 award. These are elegant dances in the sky, a huge choreography that changes in a split second. They gather in huge flocks to seek shelter from their enemies, such as the peregrine falcon.

Michelle Magdalena Maddox connects femininity with nature. Her Milk series is a symbol for being a woman. It evokes motherhood and care, confidence and life force.

“Magnolia” was shot under a 400-year-old cypress tree at 7am and Michelle had found a giant magnolia blossom. The model is 2 meters tall; the gigantic flower almost dwarfs her figure and presents a fairy-like quality to the image; a humbling to nature and a graceful adoration of its beauty and ours.

Roman Loranc features some of his most celebrated works from three decades of California landscape photography. From his wistful reed images in Central Valley to his impressive landscape portraits of Mt. Shasta, the spectacular volcanic mountain in Northern California.

Oliver G. Miller has previously displayed the monochrome North Sea series CIRCULAR DYNAMICS at Taunus Foto Galerie, and is currently showing his fascinating cloud studies from the North Sea coast; snapshots of a constantly changing and short-lived choreography of wind, light and shadow during wintry sunsets on the beaches of Amrum and St. Peter-Ording.

The exclusive and strictly limited works of these artists are available in different sizes at Taunus Foto Galerie.
