The Importance of Background

My friend Blazenka Kostolna, a professional photographer, who took the above shots, always emphasises the importance of background, as demonstrated on these pics that were taken in Adliswil on 5 December 2022.

My own picture taking is solely informed by intuition. Nevertheless, Blazenka's stance had an impact on how I look nowadays at photographs. Moreover, her regular insistence on the importance of background left its mark on my own picture taking for it made me become aware of the fact that I can direct my attention in various ways. Differently put: I have a choice. Photographers are choosing. Constantly. And, that includes the background of their photographs.
