Études in Black & White and Gray
(a portfolio in monochrome)
by Harvey A. Duze
About the Book
This portfolio's theme is about expanding the definition of the étude beyond its usual usage, (a musical composition often played as a practice exercise, but also performed in concert). Here, the études are five groupings of photos sharing, more or less, a common subject or theme.
The images (all black & white) includes selected images images created from my college years, up to the present day.
Over 40 years of professional and creative photographic and graphic design/desktop publishing experience, including handling a wide range of corporate and editorial location and studio photographic assignments, graphics to illustrate presentations and both print and Web-based publications, logos and corporate identities and the creation of both speaker-support and self-running "kiosk" PowerPoint presentations, and Web-based HTML and Flash slideshows. While the majority of my work has been done in the Northeast, U.S., I've also traveled to other parts of the U.S. and Canada, as well as overseas to Ireland and Italy. In recent years, urban and rural landscapes, nature and people have been my favorite photographic subjects.
