The fascinating photography of Bobby Becker
Mainly part of the series entitled ‘History’, the works of Nashville based photographer Bobby Becker reflect a world where reality and the impossible intertwine, with fragile boundaries between the two, an oneiric state brought into existence to confront the viewer to either encounter or recall a certain moment and experience it differently than expected.
The black and white perspective creates an impressive visual contrast, highlighting a struggle or a connection, the sense of fear and captivity, of all and nothingness, light and darkness, death and rebirth, the loss of identity and rediscovery of the self, revealed in a powerful manner and often through clever insertions of geometry and objects of duality.
Thought-provoking and excellently executed, the photography of Bobby Becker captures the essence of the situations it represents, resorting to simplicity to unfold the complexity of memory, emotion and perception.
