Pink A Boo: A Visual Game of Hide-and-Seek Inside La Muralla Roja

For three full days, Daniel Rueda and Anna Devís explored the pastel pink and blue walls of La Muralla Roja, the highly-recognised postmodern beauty located in Calpe, Spain, designed by Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill in 1968. Within this magical structure, the duo staged a visual game of hide-and-seek, photographing only during sunrise or sunset in order to catch the same soft lighting for every image. In our interview with Daniel and Anna, they share their entire process behind the concept and execution of their project within the dreamlike maze.

Ground Level Viewpoint

Most photos that we take are shot with the camera at eye-level while we are standing, sitting or kneeling down. However, for this contest I would like to see your photographs taken with the camera at ground level. The subject can be anything you like and the photographs can be in colour or black and white.

Negative Space Defining a Composition

Negative space is the space within, between, and around the primary objects within a photograph. In general, to be truly effective, the negative space should lend itself as being an important component to the overall composition, as well as becoming a primary storytelling element of the photograph.

How to look at a photo and how to learn from looking at it

In The Photographers Eye, Michael Freeman showed what a photographer needs to do in the instant before the shutter is released. In the sequel, The Photographers Mind, he explained the way that professional photographers think a picture through before taking it. Both of these international best-sellers featured Michaels own photography: stunning landscapes, revealing portraits, and fascinating street photography.

Now, in The Photographers Vision, he examines the work of photographys greats, explaining how to look at a photo and how to learn from looking at it. The featured work includes some of the most distinguished names in photographys history: Nick Knight, Frederick Henry Evans, Frans Lanting, Tim Page, Wolfgang Tillmans, Nan Goldin, Paul Outerbridge, Walker Evans, Cindy Sherman, Elliott Erwitt, Trent Parke, Jeff Wall, Paul Strand, Romano Cagnoni, Horst Faas, James Casebere and many more, making this book visually stunning as well as intellectually authoritative.
