Noell Oszvald’s Black & White Photography With a Sense Of Tranquility

While refusing to be labelled as a photographer, Hungarian artist Noell Oszvald uses this medium as the raw material through which she channels her emotions. In order to avoid any distraction that may be created by colors, Noell favorise the black and white and strips her images to their bare essence. Her compositions rely on pure straight lines into which the subject fuses, hence rubbing off all hierarchy within the components. The resulting sobriety, reinforced by the choice of a square format, acts as a breeding ground to a complex melange of subtle feelings derived from her melancholy and loneliness.
