Keizo Katajima, a Japanese photographer, captured an artwork of the train rest at Novosibirsk station in western Siberia in March 14, 1991. When the railway in Siberia was constructed, Novosibirsk was then at the intersection of two great transportation routes – the rivers and railways.
Photography is about taking an image that tells a story and finding a focus and a subject, then making sure everything else about the picture complements that one subject. There’s also the positioning of the subject in the image, the lighting, the expression; which makes it even more complicated. This photography should be considered an “art” because it represents society in general, you can see the peace and monotony of the place where it was taken, it transmits the energy of the place. The bleak colors serve to highlight contrast and steadiness of the people there. The landscape, contrasting between the plain and leveled railroads and a tall building in the horizon seems to represent people to reach higher. It’s also unusual that the building’s color is the only one that shines in the photograph.
What I like about this artwork is that it’s in black and white just like any other photograph that’s captured by Keizo Kitajima. Being black and white teaches you to see the world more graphically, it takes away the distraction of color. The viewers eye concentrates on the subject itself. Tones, shapes, textures, light play, shadows, and depth of field all become more apparent when the element of color is removed.
