Guest blog: John Ricca in Budapest

Camera West is proud to share a guest blog from our friend John Ricca. To check out John’s full line of work  http://www.riccapics.com Thank you, John, for sharing your work with us.

During one of the classroom sessions, my dear friend and co-instructor Keith Walklet said that one object in a scene is an instance, two objects is a coincidence, and three or more is a pattern.  Well, that reminded me of this image that I made in Budapest last spring; the mother of all patterns.  It looks as if it is one object, or maybe, a row of objects that I copied over and over to create an abstract scene.  In fact, it is an apartment building with balconies that stagger one behind the other.  I converted it to high key black & white, and then, inverted it, so that it is upside down from the original.  The result is this unusual abstract.  -John Ricca
