Photography: Andrew Musson makes blank white paper look seriously good

Posted by James Cartwright,

When he’s not producing exceptional documentary photography and portraits, Brooklyn-based photographer Andrew Musson likes to test his skills with smaller, one-off experiments that move his practice in a very different direction indeed. Recently the object of his affections has been plain sheets of white paper digitally engineered into crisp still lives. The series of five photos are all based on a single photograph that Andrew has cut and pasted into a unique series of compositions, playing with tonal contrast and the inclusion of soft shadowing. It’s an affectionate homage to the creative potential of a blank canvas.
