Lines Painted in Perspective onto a Set Give the Illusion of Gradient Grey Stripes
Although the subtle grey stripes in these images by photographer Benedict Morgan appear to have been added to the pictures in post production, they have actually been painted in perspective onto a set giving the illusion of a gradient applied over the images. Ben explains: “The idea came from the process you do in the dark room when exposing different sections of the test strip to get the correct exposure. You end up with a striped image, each stripe darker than the next. So in these works instead of each line being exposed differently, they have been painted with different tones of grey."
