This Modern Era

This Modern Era

An experiment in light and colour, this. The photo (an extreme close up of a bust of Joyce) was shot in golden evening sunlight, but I wanted something that looked a bit more like it was taken at night, under artificial light, because that seems more fitting for one of the fathers of modernism.

(Yes, I know that modernism isn’t strictly about artificiality. Go with it, please.)

I’d be curious to know how sucessful you think I’ve been with this one.

I’d also like to know what emotions you think it evokes, and whether you think it does Mr Joyce a service in that regard. This is one of those shots that I think will either work very well, or fall flat on it’s face, and I’d like to know which you think I’ve done.
