Travelling in Black & White / Photography by Christophe Dolhem




Travelling in Black & White
Photography by Christophe Dolhem

Christophe Dolhem belongs to the photographers who sees the beautiful and evocative in life – even in the most mundane things and events. With an eye for abstraction , he creates images with a dreamlike clarity. Here one can find gardens run wild, views from windows, deserted rooms and other places full of atmosphere. Towns shrouded in darkness or beaches bathing in light, but also people whose gestures and charisma direct one’s thoughts to characters of the literary world. Christophe is Traveling a lot for his job as a designer and his pictures take us to different parts of the world. If one looks at several photographs at the same time, a diary-like characteristic appears.

The transience lends the photographs a touch of melancholy, something which their rich grey scale often helps to accentuate. Christophe works mostly in black and white and sometimes in colour and entirely analogue which is part of his creative process.
