Martin Amis is an English photographer who is interested in street photography. Many of his photographs include a natural characteristic that creates a gloomy and obscure sensation; this natural feature is fog. I like the ghostly sensation the fog ads to one of his photographs of an empty football pitch, (located below), making it appear abandoned and lonesome. I also like how there is a distinct brown patch of dirt amongst the dark green grass in front of the goal creating a triangular shape pointing into the image towards the other goal.
Another photograph that I found to be very interesting was one of a quiet playground, (located below). Similarly to the photo located above, I like this photograph because of the irony it presents. The dense fog ads a lifeless characteristic to an area that is generally filled with joy and excitement. Another feature in the playground that ads to the lack of energy in the environment is the use of AstroTurf instead of living grass.
