Did You Know?

Harold M. Null was born in Pennsylvania, but he spent most of his adult life in Italy.


Photographs express a photographer’s vision, materialized through choices of subject matter, camera angle, cropping, editing, and other factors. Here the artist chose to represent a site from a specific viewpoint in black and white, resulting in an image that creates the illusion of two-dimensional pattern. Vines depicts bare grapevines creeping over rows of trellises in a winter landscape. From a distance, the image appears to have dark geometric and organic lines over a white background. The closer we look, the clearer the subject becomes.
