- the statement of a positions opposite to one already made.
Anyone who has spent time in the dark room developing film may understand the concept of contradictions. When the film is pulled out of the final rinse, you view the frames and it’s a contradiction from what you remember shooting. It’s not until you print a proof sheet or print to you see reality. But the negative is reality as well. That reality tends to focus on composition and layout since the actual content of the image may not be completely clear.
In Contradiction, I have parsed through images finding those that were not only interesting print but an engaging negative because of its content and engaging composition of black and white.
