Moving Elephant By Mark

Moving Elephant by Mark is a Zurich based photographer. For him, the art of photography is synonymous with life, embodying a never-ending journey which is manifested in his creativity and artistic vision. Capturing his scenes with only naturally available light as well as directly shot monochrome, his images hold a power in their underlying preservation of photography in its most natural and raw form.

Mark’s work is comprised of two parallel lines of work. The first of these lines explores symmetry and perspective in mostly urban architecture. These works capture the beauty of the order present in oft overlooked architecture, which is then further emphasized by the monochromatism of the images, which renders all the lines of the symmetry all that much more visible. The second line in Mark’s work deals with the art of storytelling through images as it relates to the female body. In these works, Mark deftly wields extremely dramatic lights and shadows to create gorgeously emotive scenes that can easily stir up memories or connections within a viewer. Further, there is compositional overlap between these lines, both where elements of symmetry and repetition come into the figurative works, as well as where the symmetrical architecture begins to evoke figurative forms in its contours.

Exquisitely Composed Photos That Each Tell A Unique Story

Have you spent much time thinking about the nature of composition in a photograph? Consider this… when you begin the process of creating a photograph something has caught your attention. That “something” seems worthy of capture and to pass onto others (your viewers). The problem is the “others” aren’t there with you when take the photograph. They didn’t see and feel the scene as you did. Composition is the tool that helps you convey that silent message to a viewer who is perhaps thousands and thousands of miles away.

Resonance | Images with Meaning | A Special White Horses Issue

Warmly wrapped between the covers of this special issue, titled RESONANCE, are some amazing untold stories from surfers, artists and musicians about the photos that influenced their lives.

The idea of a photo triggering a strong emotional response lies at the heart of this special issue. The premise was simple enough: we asked an eclectic mix of surfers to nominate an image that resonated with them, an image that carried special meaning. The aim is not only to gain insight into the image, but to get to know the storytellers a little better too.
