Photography and commentary from John Fujimagari

The Stones Themselves

The Stones Themselves//

In Monument Valley, the red coloured rocks are quite prominent and the vivid hues are in your face. I thought that removing the colour and presenting the scene in black and white would show the grain and structure of the giant boulders and cliff face. Hopefully the tuft of grasses included at the bottom of the frame gives the image a sense of scale.

In the best light…

    • Thanks Frank, it’s one of my faves. I love the red rock country but with the late afternoon light, even after cranking down the levels, the reds looked over saturated, and I really wanted to show the forms and textures.
