Taunus Foto Galerie
"From July 2022, Taunus Foto Galerie is showing MONOCHROME PERSPECTIVES, a series starting with the well-known landscape photographers Roman Loranc and Oliver Miller. Both are connected by decades of intuitive enthusiasm for monochrome photography, with which they capture their visual landscape experiences through compositions of unique moments of light and shadow; these are then immortalized on baryta paper. Roman Loranc and Oliver Miller form the prelude to the new series MONOCHROME PERSPECTIVES, in which changing international photographers display their work, including, Michelle Magdalena Maddox, Daniel Dencescu, Rachael Talibart, and Konrad Bartelski."
