Repeating Shapes

I like to develop images using a number of compositional devices.

There are subjects that offer an opportunity to repeat shapes to unify the composition.

"In the Shadows" is built upon a series of rectangles as a design principle.

The single figure is the focal point and its' placement in the corridor frames it twice, once in the entrance and again counterchanged by the opening to the inner courtyard.

The one point perspective places the viewer at a specific vantage point and the limited palette reinforces the use of repeating shapes as the dominant compositional device.
