The Lusetti Family, Luzzara, Italy-Paul Strand I like the constant rough texture. Each subject adds to the consistent rhythm. The distribution of light and dark areas encourages specific movement by the viewer.
Paul Strand: I like this photo because of the columns add line and shape and the shadows create interesting lines. Also, making the photo black and white creates more contrast between the columns and the doorway.
From the El - I like the perspective/form of this image. The pattern of the windows in the buildings adds detail to the image and the lines of the buildings act as leading lines to move your eyes around the picture.
