This is not the first time we talk about Dorit Fuhg, a photographer originally from Lauter in Saxony (Germany) who moved to Bournemouth (UK) in 2001 after living and working in Switzerland for 3 years and in Norway for a summer season. 
Photography means, for her, the best way to relax focusing on the subject… She currently uses a Canon EOS 50D to take her photos. Though some older images where taken with a Fujifilm S7000 or a Canon EOS IX7. She takes photos in RAW format and develop them in Adobe Photoshop’s built in RAW converter. Most of her black and white images have been taken in colour and later converted into black and white, using Photoshop.
In her images she strives to capture mood as well as visually stimulating cut outs of every day life…. and sees herself more as an image creator rather then a photographer.

Le Carré

El formato cuadrado  en muchas ocasiones no es  el más conveniente para representar determinadas escenas ya que por lo general, es técnicamente difícil de manejar. Tanto en fotografía como en ilustración, requiere una estudiada disposición de los elementos y el cumplimiento de una de las normas esenciales referente al encuadre y a la composición. Para poder sacar el máximo partido a la imagen, ésta debe al menos cumplir la «Regla de los Tercios» por la que tres de las cuatro masas visuales presentes en la obra, deben situarse sobre los puntos calientes de la misma. De estos puntos o masas, es de donde emergen las directrices que guian la mirada del espectador de un lugar a otro, evitando que ésta se salga de la imagen.

Dorit, con su imagen Don’t ask, nos ofrece un ejemplo de cómo la mirada del espectador es guiada de un punto a otro a través de líneas horizontales (el mar), verticales (el poste) y diagonales (las huellas) para conducirnos al punto de principal de interés: una rueda atada a un poste de luz, que plantea la incógnita de la autora y a su vez da título a la obra: Don’t ask.

Don’t ask by Dorit 

The square format is not always the most suitable to represent certain scenes as it is often technically difficult to compose. In both photography and illustration, it requires an elaborate arrangement of the elements, and the fulfillment of one of the main rules concerning the framing and composition of a scene which will allow the artist to take the full advantage of it : «The Rule of the Thirds»,  for which three of the four visual masses must be placed on the hot zones of the artwork. From these «hot points» is where the guidelines emerge and guide the viewer’s eye from one place to another, in order to prevent it from being put away, outside the image.
Dorit , with her artwork Don’t ask, gives us an example of how the viewer is led from one point to another through horizontal lines (the sea), vertical lines (the post), and diagonal lines (the car tracks in the sand) to take us to the main point of interest: a tire attached to a lamppost. A weird situation which raises a question to the author about its meaning and gives the title to the artwork: Don’t ask
