“Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty.” In Praise of Shadows by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki

 

For Baud Postma’s solo exhibition ‘In Praise of Shadows’ he explores the role played by ambiguity and uncertainty in promoting subjective responses to photographic images. Taking inspiration and his title from the 1977, Jun'ichirō Tanizaki's essay of the same name, Postma has created a series of landscapes, interiors and portraits that place emphasis not on minute detail and forensic precision but rather on the indeterminate, the murky, and the obscure.
