Blog Guelph: Abstract Libs

Made in Guelph - Dogleash / Jeff Dalgleish

I am so very pleased to be able to present a small set of Jeff Dalgleish's work. WOW. Jeff is a UofG student and an incredibly gifted photographer. I was immediate struck by the confidence in his images, a confidence rooted in his vision, his interpretation, and his presentation. I have included a mini portfolio of images he has made from campus, most of which are perhaps best described as architectural abbreviations. There is something to be said for sense of presence contained withing images of a space you frequent, and here you can really feel that in his work. Jeff is able to weave such strong narratives into the angles and lines he isolates from these buildings. These graphically heavy images are so assertive in their presentation and just smack of having something to say! I have really enjoyed looking through Jeff's stream, and I would encourage you all to do so. He has a refreshing vision, and fantastic use of line, space, form, and colour, and you will be inspired by what you see. Thank you Jeff, and best of luck as you develop in your photography.

Hope you all have had a wonderful day,

Paula
