These Anouk and Marjon Pieces are Subtle

By: Josh Triantafilou - Published: Apr 6, 2012 • References: &
Dutch artists Anouk and Marjon have shot a series of photographs that perfectly distill the most elegant elements of modern art photography. They are poised, minimalist shots that focus clearly on their subjects in order to convey subtle feelings rather than overload their viewers with pedantic messages.

Text is a persistent element throughout the pieces. In many shots, a few unrelated objects are depicted alongside some curious, enigmatic script. The meaning seems open to interpretation and the viewer is encouraged to connect the dots. It may help if the viewer is multilingual though, as much of the text alternates between French, Dutch and English. Still, photography is a primarily visual medium.
