Subject 3: Kenneth AngerPosted: April 19, 2016
Earlier this week I picked up one of the most breath-taking books I’ve ever read. Kenneth Anger by Alice L. Hutchinson is a book which looks at the complete works of the artist Kenneth Anger.
Due to this I found a lot of his work that I wasn’t aware of in the past. I did not know that Anger had worked in a similar style to the way in which I work, with high-contrast images of people and the body, as I mostly associate Anger with his brightly coloured films.
I love the use of shadow and energy to tell a visual story within these film stills, as well as the interesting use of visual cues such as abstract angles and shadows.
