Analogue Minimalist: Works by Popel Coumou

Shapes, geometry and abstraction define contemporary photography today, but there’s something unique with contemporary photographer Popel Coumou’s visual language.

Her photography speaks intensely; melancholic, solemn yet hopeful and joyful. While her photographs are deceivingly digital in appearance, her works are processed in film print. Using light, shadow, space and geometry, her works are futuristic but soft.

Check out these photographs from Coumou in the show Popel: Popel Coumou at LMAK Gallery in New York, Oct. 21.
