We are in our 3rd weekly Monday photo pick and first of all I’d like to welcome Pavel to our little online community.
As a new member, he had the privilege to choose a famous photographer and we all had to pick Our favourite image. This monday it’s the one and only Josef Koudelka.
My favourite image
Taken from his project “Exiles”
It is probably one of his most famous photographs, and I couldn’t help it but choose it myself too. What is striking for me in this picture – it is so simple yet so effective. Just a black dog on snow. But the more you look at it, the more details you notice. The position of the dog, the pointy ears and a curling tail gives it almost a devil looking figure. It’s head is turned to the viewer to haunt for some time later. The composition in this photo is excellent and high contrast of the black dog and white snow work effectively.
