Black and white photography can be quite a challenge for an unskilled photographer. It is considered the purest form of photography and, in the hands of an inspired artist, it can transform reality.
The 23-year-old Noell Oszvald managed to do exactly this: she gave reality a different form and feeling. The Hungarian artist possesses a unique photographic style where minimalism conveys a certain mystery to the objects in her photos, a mystery that pulls the viewer in. Her self-portraits let us know little of her, however, they reveal a part of her soul. The mysterious shapes she uses to paint a macabre atmosphere with, acknowledge an inner sensitivity that is hard to find in today’s artistic world.
Looking at her images, it will be hard to believe that she only started photographing a little over two years ago. With each photo, she invites the viewer to create their own interpretation of reality, based on what they see. ‘I don’t want to tell people what to see in my images’, she told in an interview on My Modern Met. ‘This is the reason why I never really write any descriptions other than titles. It shows what I wish to express but everyone is free to figure out what the picture says to them. It’s very interesting to read so many different thoughts about the same piece of work’, she concludes.
