Tuesday 5th February – Darkness

This months topic is Darkness – apt for this time of year in Scotland.

Photographers like Brassai and Bill Schwab used artificial light and the effects of swirling fog to great effect depicting the urban environments of Paris and Michigan. Others have painted light into the darkness such as Susan Hillbrand and Jozef Sedlak or used low-key techniques to great effect like Arnold Newman. Perhaps the most important photographs of darkness though are those which shine the light on the dark heart of society and lead to reform as per Lewis Hine‘s work exposing child labour practices and campaigning for reform.
