INTO THE FOG
Many will agree that fog is one of the most interesting atmospheric agents to capture in a picture: it adds an air of mystery, transports what could be normal scenes of daily life into a timeless dimension where silence reigns absolute.
One Sunday afternoon, I grabbed my camera and tripod and rushed out with the aim of creating a series of dark and moody images.
Many of the shots present my small Irish Hometown, as deserted, pervaded by a soft blue light; the few human figures have been photographed from afar, and occupy their frame space as elusive silhouettes.
The urban landscape is crystallized in stillness. Yet, despite the apparent calm, a certain tension is perceived, perhaps because the insistence of blue tones suggests that the sun is about to set.
My name is Oliver Gargan I’m 32 from a small irish town called, Bailieborough, In county cavan ireland. I love many areas of photography, since I picked up my first cameras in 2013. Since then my passion for image has grown so much.
