Valley Days - Rondels by Peter Ydeen
Peter Ydeen’s series “Valley Days - Rondels” brings us the tenets of Urban Landscape photography and sets them in the elegant format of the circle. Based in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, Poetic arrangements, lyrical vignettes and subtle colors, emphasize the beauty of this typically American urban environment. With a strong emphasis on compositon; they tend to be simple photos with a simple palette, but still reveal inspiration from the quiet understatements of George Tice and and the painterly aesthetic of Peter Franck The rondels come together like pieces of a stained glass window, reading like illustrations from a Romantic tale. The magic is in fact, the mundane environment we have engineered for ourselves and the layered stages where we act.
