Vandervell

It is in the streets of the English capital, London, that the artist photographer Rupert Vandervell was born and raised. The photographie is largely a reflection of what he is and always has been. From his youngest At that age, he developed a passion for objects that had straight lines, symmetrical patterns and mathematical-looking images. This is how he was able to combine his love for geometric shapes and his passion for photography with the aim of giving a result worthy of the greatest contemporary artists.

 
For his photographs, he focuses on the variations of light and shadow around the object of the photography and not on the subject photographed. directly. His research focuses on the relationship with the outside world and the different interactions of humans with their environment.

 
Man caught in his environment

 
Rupert Vandervell is a photographer based in Canada. London which presents a brilliant method for capturing the city; his work highlights the special link between architecture and light. Vandervell presents a collection of images that focus more on the human moving in the environment than on the setting in which the photographs are taken. These images, which have been taken in the dynamic context of the contemporary metropolis, emphasize the existence of life as well as the distinctive aesthetic qualities of the human form.

The artist photographer basedé wanted to convey a feeling of isolation and, while maintaining a distance from the subject, he wanted to encroach somewhat on this solitude. Moments like these are becoming more and more difficult to imagine in our society crowded. Through his works, it is easy to understand that we can Being in a populated environment but still feel lonely.

 
The influences of the artist photographer Vandervell


The images in this collection have been edited. inspired by various sources. The British photographer was strongly influenced by by the works of Edward Hopper, of Mario Sironi and Giorgio de Chirico. Their use of shape, color and light is seductive.


The artist has also been fascinated by the photographs of Gregory Crewdson. The strong feeling of sadness and loneliness in his figures, which sums up an entire life in a single moment, has never ceased. to fascinate Vandervell.

 


The secret of his works in the technology and production of his cameras


The artist photographer plays with exposure for his scenes. He eventually finds a strategy that works and uses it for the rest of his work. Depending on the scenario, he often exposed for the highlights before adjusting the depth of the shadows. This was more difficult at night, as he sometimes had to work with a very weak light source. In these cases he used a high ISO. to achieve the shutter speed needed to freeze a moving subject. Due to the noise that was inevitably created, some sequences had to be distorted. could be cut because they were too grainy.


These images required editing. a little contrast correction and sporadic cropping during the post-production process. The number of adjustments he could make an image in Photoshop was limited. In general, it is acceptable to assume that he has the ability to can accurately capture the scene in the camera if it finds the right conditions on location. From the beginning, the artist photographer knew he wanted a portable, discreet camera before he even started shooting. photograph his new projects.

 With the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and its 20mm pancake lens, he discovered the ideal camera. The task would have been much more difficult if he had had to carry a large SLR. The Olympus is beautiful and fast. He always thought that it was appropriate for this type of work.

Rupert Vandervell's work has recurring themes. He is attracted to He enjoys desolate or minimalist settings when photographing landscapes, and he really enjoys shooting in the dead of winter when the inherent geometry of the trees is exposed . He is also attracted to by geometric shapes. His goal is to infuse a little of his personality into the world. in everything he does, and he hopes that aspects of this project will find their way into his future work.

 


Capturing the streets of London with patience and precision

 


Vandervell's photography produces a patient result. Architecture and light must be present, even for the briefest minutes, as they cautiously await the ideal combination. He captures urban images as singular as the flow of light itself, paying particular attention to geometric perfection and clean lines thanks to his distinctive use of black and white photography.


His careful planning and keen eye for lighting produce a unique perspective on the city's architecture and presence intimidating, the scale of which sometimes exceeds the single human being in the frame. Vandervell's photographs often feature architecture, although he is less interested in architecture. the capture of specific structures than the framework they offer. He doesn't always see the beauty in himself. in the subject itself, but in the space that surrounds it. Vandervell's images are a collection of ever-changing landscapes, much like the city itself. Using the effects of reflecting light on a large amount of light Made of steel and glass, Vandervell depicts a rich and dramatic world that is constantly changing.


Despite this The fact that London has more than 9 million inhabitants, Vandervell skillfully finds lonely people in fleeting isolation, in a moment of serenity. or in the middle of a rushed transit. His images show how the imposing presence of the built environment constantly displaces human presence within a metropolis. Only Vandervell, who had carefully waited for the ideal fusion between light, architecture and presence, is truly still during these fleeting seconds.
