Landscapes Between Black and White
In this exhibition, most of them are black & white landscapes of nature presented for the first time and their details shot in black and white negative film. A. Gökhan Demirer, was interested in nature photography as a traveler and photographer during his wide period of photography, -especially Ansel Adams and Edward Weston-. He preferred black and white as well as taking colored photographs in nature.
Each photo is fundamentally an abstraction. Even in the roughest determination, the photograph presents a two-dimensional image of a three-dimensional world. Black-and-white photography further enhances this abstraction with the lack of colors, allowing for more personal expressions. . Most of the photographs present images from Cappadocia, Nallıhanı and Taurus Mountains of 20 years ago with their constantly changing-transforming nature.
