Monochrome perspectives.

July 2022

From July 2022, Taunus Foto Galerie is showing MONOCHROME PERSPECTIVES, a series starting with the well-known landscape photographers Roman Loranc and Oliver Miller. Both are connected by decades of intuitive enthusiasm for monochrome photography, with which they capture their visual landscape experiences through compositions of unique moments of light and shadow; these are then immortalized on baryta paper or silver gelatin prints.

Roman Loranc and Oliver Miller form the prelude to the new series MONOCHROME PERSPECTIVES, in which changing international photographers display their work. MONOCHROME PERSPECTIVES brings together a group of fascinating black-and-white photographers, who concentrate on the essentials of their subject and for whom classic black-and-white photography is a special means of expression with its subtle effects.

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 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.

In addition to Roman Loranc and Oliver Miller, other photographers will complete the MONOCHROME PERSPECTIVES series in the near future, including Konrad Bartelski, Daniel Dencescu, Anthony Lamb, Birgit Maddox, Michelle Magdalena Maddox, Paul Sanders, Rachael Talibart. And there will be more. Look forward to the coming months with a new series of very special black and white photographs.

The exclusive and strictly limited works of these artists can be purchased in different sizes at Taunus Foto Galerie.
