Solitude Series LE by ManButur Suantara.
Solitude is a selection of Black and White Landscapes by ManButur Suantara. Images that are especially poetic in its sombreness and silence. Each frame draws you in. Transporting you to a place that is detached from everything else.
Perhaps you get a sense of being frozen in a moment. Yet, what I love about these images by ManButur is that they not only convey a visual story. There is a strong atmosphere of overwhelming silence. Of a stillness and quiet.
Each photograph is different. In some of the photographs, I think it expresses my feeling like I am an outcast. In the house, it shows perhaps a desire to escape into this place , perhaps for a few days or weeks. wouldn’t it be nice to be in that space. Solitude here might not be loneliness, but like a sanctuary. A place that is peaceful and safe.
ManButur’s comfort being in Nature’s elements is perhaps very evident here. The mood of peace and beauty one finds in what others may interpret as lonely or cold, reveals more the artists’ sentiments about Nature. In her vastness, we are still at home.
Solitude LE displays the sombre, poetic beauty of ManButur Suantara’ fine art landscape photography in black and white. Explore Collections at Sawidji Studio.
