Black Dog | Starting point for the series was the death of a good friend, the artist Mieke Van de Voort (1972-2011) Black Dog is a non-linear, on-going black and white photo-series shot as a stream of consciousness. Starting out as a personal reaction on the death of a close friend, the series is a sharp editing of a personal view on the world, from death to life, from white into black.
If one’s perception is reality, Black Dog creates its own, as a continuous attempt to gain control over all shades of black. Black Dog is a journey into darkness and into the history of black and white photography. Following the adage of Anders Peterson: “Shoot from the gut, edit with the brain.’ www.blackdogphotography.nl
