“CHIAROSCURO I”: a mesmerizing black and white landscape photographic series by Thomas Paturet

In his series titled CHIAROSCURO I – a reference to the Renaissance painting style that uses strong contrasts between light and dark – Bolquère, France-based architect, cartographer, and editor Thomas Paturet creates magnificent scenarios of mysterious landscapes, manipulating photographs of high mountains, giving them the effect of being in the middle of giant square portals.

Light itself seems to be the interior refraction of a light that dies somewhere, far away.
