Monochrome… or: the beauty of just one color.
How do the various colors influence our mood, what is the impact of Red, Green, Violet? And what happens when seemingly everyday objects try to camouflage themselves and begin to merge with their backgrounds? This time photographer J. F. Novotny alias J. Flynn Newton – known for his CameraSelfies – combines colors, backgrounds and sometimes absurd items …resulting in beautiful, shouting, contemplative, minimalistic and often grotesque still lives.
By capturing his painting like still lifes in different shades of a single color, photographer J. F. Novotny coincidentally hides and exaggerates his minimalistic subjects: vases filled with unusual, almost bizarre objects which – in comparison to usual lifestyle accessories – catch the spectator’s view.
