Unterach, Attersee

Summertime can be reading time, too – you don’t always want sun. So I found time enough to delve into Abelardo Morell’s Universe Next Door. And reflecting on it, I ask me again and again why I do so much admire black-and-white photography and at the same time photograph almost exclusively in color.

Of course the world is in colour, and I guess my careful dosing of color avoids all abuse pitfalls, but still: some of the photographs and photographers I admire the most use black-and-white…

Hommage to Abelardo

Depending of the time of the year we would either get naturlly damped colors by the (in)famous Salzburg rain or we have to translate the sceneries on our own: in any case much better than the sometimes overly sweet aimed-to-attract-the-tourists colors.
