Simplicity is good. This is good. All of Mr. Tjintjelaar’s photos are good in fact. He seems to incorporate mathematics into his art because all of his lines and angles are fabulously perfect. The sharp turns and dramatic shadows create a sense of cleanliness in all of his pictures. He also shoots exclusively in black and white, which makes me all the more awestruck by his work. Black and white should only be used when it is necessary, or at least that is what I tell myself when I edit, but Mr. Tjintjelaar has turned an edit into an art and makes beautiful and powerfully pleasing pictures because of it. Definitely check him out!
