November Light by Kip Harris

The light in November is very different in Milan and Florence than it is in Rome. The warm amber glow of the eternal city does not penetrate that far north.

The light in November is very different in Milan and Florence than it is in Rome. The warm amber glow of the eternal city does not penetrate that far north.

There the light is a cutting, biting blue-grey that casts magical shadows. This light takes over and moves people and things out of its way.

I like to travel between November and March when the museums are less crowded, there are fewer tourists, and the pace is more relaxed. That’s when cities get returned to their residents.

This portfolio was captured in 1999. At this time, I was using two Mamiya 6 cameras.  One for black and white; one for color. I found after scanning the film that I was really seeing everything in black and white and that color was not adding to the images. I like the way the grain of the film worked with the character of the light and the way it defined space as a positive presence and striped everything down to the bare essentials.

These images have been scanned and then processed in Lightroom for cropping, Silver eFex Pro for contrast, and Photoshop to clean up some of the dust specks.
