Eyewitness Photo: Interpretive Photography

BreakingModern — Photography is fascinating, just like painting, sculpture, videography and other arts. And, with the smartphones we carry around all day, creating that art is always possible. The key to the fascination of art, though, is always in its interpretation. How is the subject viewed? What is the artist’s perspective of the world? I enjoy photography not only for the style and beauty, but also its interpretive aspects. Let’s look at today’s Eyewitness Photo from EJ Mallorca.

Using his HTC One M7 smartphone and VSCO Cam HB1 filter, Mallorca captured this interesting photograph he titles “Lonely Grass.” Let’s look at a few things. First, the framing. Notice how Mallorca stands with his feet aligned with the inlay of bricks on the walking path. His feet create a “V,” but the colors in the brick and concrete shape another V behind the more-obvious one. Meanwhile the focal point of the photo is neither his feet nor the brick, but the little bit of grass. It sprouts forlornly through the cracks of the walkway surface. The grass is definitely out of place and well … lonely. Excellent interpretive shot, Mallorca. Nicely done.

Mallorca has an Instagram page with a lot more great photography. Be sure to follow him if you like this piece.
