Dragan Markovic: Stones & Skies Cityscapes
Posted by Jay at 5:39 PM
Sometimes, the best subjects are those that are most often ignored. Landscapes have often been a great source of inspiration for artists and photographers alike, but the urban jungle also offers plenty of great scenes. Streets, buildings and shadows can all combine to make for great compositions when taken with the right light and at the right angle. Dragan Markovic proves this with his Stones & Skies cityscapes.
Dragan Markovic is a commercial photographer who has spent the last four years focusing on architectural and urban photography. In his ongoing cityscapes project entitled "Stones & Skies", Markovic takes to the streets and captures the city from a different point of view. For him, the city is a stage from which different scenes can be played out.
In these photographs, Markovic goes back to the basics of photography by focusing on composition. The simplicity of lines and colors are all too often ignored in the hustle and bustle of the city, but a brick wall or colorful carpet can offer surprising beauty when framed outside of it's surroundings.
Check out a few more examples of Markovic's cityscapes below.
