Featured Exhibition 'Light and dark' by Colin Dixon

by Yvette Depaepe
Edited and Published the 2nd of December


This month, we like to present to you an amazing exhibition 'Light and dark' (Chiaroscuro) by Colin Dixon.

Colin quotesSince my journey in photography really started back in 2010 I have always been drawn to Black and White in the sense of light and extreme contrast . For me Black and white should always have Black and White and tones of Grey. Hence why I am drawn to art nude photography and especially black and white. Here you have the power to create art from the beauty of the human body shape/curves/angles and with the power of Chiaroscuro.

This featured exhibition is exposed on the opening page  / Gallery of our site since the 1st of December and will stay there till the 31st of December 2022.
