As the final Contact Sheet of 2012, take a look at this stark, basic image photographed by “tenma Andrew” on Koinup. (Click through for the full size.) Why is it beautiful? The simplicity, the almost noir-type theme, the clearness of the composition and the pure artistry of the entire concept. This has all the qualities of some of the best RL monochrome film photography of the past century, and I salute tenma for this work.
