The idea of gothic photography has shifted over the years. The sort I am thinking about – the one that I am presenting to you, here, is my take on how lots of photography was done in the 19th century.
The style “gothic” has also changed a lot over time. Very simply, one might say that the gothic produced during medieval times is the mother of everything that’s ever been called gothic since.
The gothic subculture we’re used to today is in its expression quite far from the gothic that I personally like. The idea is still there, but it is presented quite differently, and I admit to preferring the old style better.
What I am showing here, is one aspect of the gothic expression in photography. Think of it as experiencing loss, letting the mind wonder down memory lane, the lack of that which was… combined with what I personally see as beautiful composition, contrasts between light and dark, and there you have it.
All these photographs (as with both previous posts) have been photographed at different times. I just wanted to brag and show off a selection of this kind of photography, since I absolutely love to do it.
