Wow these photos are incredible! It’s amazing how you have turned a simple playground into a dark and mysterious place…
Thanks Jayde-Ashe! I knew from the outset that I wanted to process the images in black & white in order to communicate a sense of abandonment. The results are just what I was hoping for.
Great photos, love the top one in particular.
Thanks so much, Mark! That’s my favorite too.
Great photos-love the lighting, lines and framing on the swings
Thanks Nora! I thought the rigid framing was a perfect way to convey the stillness of the empty playground – as if the swings are ‘standing at attention’ waiting for children to come and play with them.
Thank you once again Rabirius!
