Polish photographer Bartosz Matenko captures dark and moody scenes in this collection.
The photographs distill scenes to their most essential formal elements, unhindered by colors. One appreciates the shapes from which such scenes are comprised. The angles and lines run with and against each other to produce objects like people, buildings and cars. In this manner, black and white photography is an abstraction of what it seeks to portray.
The gray, monochromatic veneer of the shoots featured here allow the viewer to appreciate the scenes portrayed on both an abstract and literal level.
Matenko manages to take quite simplistic scenes and turn them into works of art, enticing viewers into the world he has created.
