depictions by the rule of thirds; descriptions mostly freestyle words

As photographers we are always aiming to capture depth in our flattened camera views and by way of refreshing my memory, a re-visit to Tate Britain and the tour of Henry Moore sculptures makes the three dimensional loud and clear.

Love the images and the quote. 🙂
Took me many years to comprehend the space that Henry Moore sculpted – thank you Robin
Two stunning photos!
My oft used high contrast mono but something gritty suited the sculptures best I thought – appreciate your appreciation Amy
Great photos and black and white is just perfect for them.
thanks Elaine – no other colour would do!

love the human additions here, Laura – added dimensions 🙂
Just right for comparison – “actual physical size has an emotional meaning. We relate everything to our own size, and our emotional response to size is controlled by the fact that men on the average are between five and six feet high” ~ Henry Moore
Oh that is such a good quote too.
I like the little people too 🙂 🙂
thanks Jo – it feels good to be overawed sometimes 🙂
When it comes to Henry Moore, always! Great shots, Laura 🙂
So well done. Love the second shot especially. Very difficult to capture that subtle form, I’m sure.
Many thanks – Moore makes much of the human form so I aimed to capture one!
Agree with Tish here – the human element really makes this 2nd picture. Art within art.
I like that – art within art
Oh my! I glanced at these and thought… “I’ve seen this movie!” How wonderfully you have shattered reality and perspective, Laura.
I think you have nailed the ethos of Moore – to shatter perspective is not the same as personifying alienation. Talking of films you might like this rather shaky BBC archive of Henry Moore – its in B&W!
Words and pictures are my world and in 20/20 the world is going to open its doors far and wide
