Richard Renaldi

For his work, he uses a medium format camera. His work is characterised by his muted tones and minimalism, like the photograph below. It creates a sense of nostalgia.screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-10-00-47screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-10-06-54

He uses a style of ‘deadpan’ in his images.

Deadpan portraits show people in their natural state, typically not showing any sort of emotion. These subjects are not posed, are not dressed up for the occasion, and seem completely honest. The colour of deadpan photographs are commonly de-saturated. While not completely devoid of colour, the colours tend to be muted.

It simply exists as a subject and photograph, yet it seems to be empty. There is no joy or sorrow, although some can argue that the deadpan itself is a mood of its own.

I adore his website; I think its very beautiful and exhibits his work well, and is cleanly organised.
