Pictures that look like moments from a movie, freeze-frames with interrupted narration, with hints of varying degrees of evidence of what is happening, where the development of the plot depends only on the imagination and interpretation of the viewer. Such photos are extremely close to the cinema dear to our hearts.
Since in 1895 the Lumiere brothers showed their first film on the Boulevard des Capucines in In Paris, cinema occupies a special place in the public imagination.
Photographers quickly absorbed his trends, and many major movements in cinema — from German expressionism to the French New Wave — had a lasting impact on the practice of still images. In photographic terminology, this is called the cinematic style.
A distinctive feature of cinema is action. Something is constantly happening on the screen, even when it seems that nothing is moving. In the same way, cinematic photographs are created by various visual techniques designed for extremely effective transmission of action and volume.
If we disassemble the frame into notes, we can note that the illusion of reality is enhanced by the illusion of depth, emphasized by compositional techniques — multiplicity, leading lines, perspective distortions, proportions (width) of the frame. And you can achieve a strong emotional effect, mysticism and drama with minimal means — affordable lighting and shadows.
In our collection there are pictures of photographers working in various directions, but certainly exploring the ideas of cinematic structure or direct allusions to cinema.
They draw the viewer's gaze into their impossible reality, come to life in the imagination and move towards the final that depends only on you.
