2021-2022 Journey

Episode 6: Old Continent

Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland

While Magnum photographers looked out at the world, another group of European photographers looked inward. Led by Otto Steinert, the movement known as Subjektive Fotografie emphasized the photographer’s ability to imbue his subject with personal and aesthetic meaning through photographic means—perspective and point of view; the use of the close-up; tonal rendering; defamiliarizing the subject through negative printing and solarization; and experimentation with time exposure. Such techniques emphasized the role of the artist in creating meaning for photographs beyond the factual reality of the objects before the camera.

There’s something about Europe that just makes us want to take pictures. Maybe it’s the centuries-old architecture, or the charming villages with their cobblestone streets. Or maybe it’s the beautiful countryside, with its rolling hills and snow-capped mountains. Whatever it is, European cities are a photographer’s dream come true.

There are so many approaches to photograph Europe. The challenge is finding the places or moments that are not overrun by tourists and photographers! Check out this unique place, where East meet West.

Images below were taken during many European “sleepless nights!”. And I never felt threatened or feared for my life or my equipment!
