This is our 7th week of Photo 52.2 and our third week focusing on balance. This week we sought to utilize negative space to provide balance, or imbalance, to our images. Sometimes it is so easy to get caught up in filling the frame that we forget what an effective and deceptively simple tool empty space can be. This doesn't mean the space must be open sky or a blank wall, but in whatever form it takes, it lends a sense of scope and may even act as the primary or secondary subject within the frame.
For this week, I chose an image I shot in Milan last week on a mini holiday. This was taken on the roof top of the cathedral in the Milan center. This cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete- it's the fifth largest cathedral in the world and the largest in the Italian state territory. There are over 2000 statues on the roof, all portraying saints, prophets, sibyls and other characters of the Bible. It was an incredible view and we had an incredible night.
