Expressive Black and White Long-Exposure Landscapes


Fine art photographer Vassilis Tangoulis finds the mystery and magic within everyday landscapes and translates those moments into visually complex black and white photographs. His beautifully contemplative, simple scenes feature dramatic lighting, textured details, perfect symmetry, and crisp reflections.

The Greece-based artist is open to both color and black and white photography, but the majority of his work is in black and white. He believes his work can have just as many colors–if not more–than a color image due to the enormous range of grays that are revealed through the lens.

Tangoulis uses long exposures and neutral density filters to capture strong contrast in the minimalist scenes. He achieves an expressive clarity that reveals the incredible details of his landscapes and stirs up an emotional response from his viewers. He finds quiet moments and gives them a powerful energy through his lens, stating that his work captures “the time in a world where ‘present’ is only an infinitesimal part of time, a fleeting illusion dividing almost infinite past and future.”
