Tony Bowall is a self-taught photographer who works in Brighton (GB).
He subtitled this photo with “Greek minimalism, Santorini, Greece”, but of course this work is beyond time and place, a remarquably well-built abstract.
The metallic pieces and their shadows give rhythm to the picture and link the blue and white surfaces. The eye is tempted to climb the white slope.
Do you see the triangle?
It is formed by the bolt (inferior corner, left), by the nail (right, against the blue) and by the spike and its shadow (right, against the white).
When you reach the top of the slope, your eyes will come back to the bolt down on the left (well, mine do!!), and start climbing up the slope again: that triangle adds dynamism to the image.
