Today we feature the picks of David Halperin. Halperin is an experienced international photographer and writer whose work has appeared in print, online, in exhibitions, and in multimedia productions on three continents. He shoots a wide range of subjects – from landscapes, nature, and architecture to reportage, portraits, and abstracts. Halperin’s distinct eye for composition and focused sense of color results in works that not only display an image, but convey a unique sensibility to the world around us.

Not only does this image successfully channel some of Monet’s vision, but it plays with contrasting colors in ways similar to those being explored by the Impressionists (the Pointillists in particular). And the richness of that violet-blue is practically electric.
Monochrome lives, and this is a particularly nice use of it, with a good tonal range and glowing grays. At first glance it looks like an artificially-constructed abstract; at second glance it resembles an M.C. Escher print, with stairs, floors and other planes intersecting at impossible angles. And then the caption lets us know that it’s actually what was in front of the photographer.
This has a great sense of place. It’s realistic without drama or manipulation but I like the way you can just imagine yourself there and almost smell the air.
Great opportunistic use of the weather and the light here: it really is dreamlike as well as dramatic, yet still shows the architecture to good advantage.
This works on several levels. It’s a nice semi-abstract image, but also it has a vintage look, almost resembling an old photo from a historical archive. It taps into the mystique of sea travel, departures, and long journeys generally — and piques the curiosity: where is it? (makes me think of low, gray English Channel ports); what kind of ship is the Badger, and where is it going? Nice!
