Doors of Perception – the Colourful Photography of Agne Gintalaite

By -

Is there an unlikelier source of beauty than the humble garage door? Perhaps, but it hasn’t escaped the eye of Lithuanian photographer Agne Gintalaite that her homeland is host to a myriad swathe of coloured garage doors that hold an intriguing play of colour and texture (and slightly remind one of a Rothko painting).

The abstract brush strokes and patina of decay are evocative and surprising in equal measure – how is it that something so unarguably lovely could come from such humble and prosaic subject matter? They are topographical in so far as the angle of composition is straight on, and there are no lighting tricks to these images; the objects are photographed as they are found, and are no less marvellous for it. En masse they create a mosaic that is quite arresting, reminding us that you can discover beauty in the unlikeliest of places.
