Val-Mont is capturing natural life scenes of people as Nature itself give birth to people who can be captured by Val Mont. This circulation is a current of life that I see in His work.
Here is an example. Summer! People! Bicycles! And the best main part - Girl! Girl directed forward but looking behind with attention. The neverending question about life is "Why?". This photo exactly implodes this question - whole attention is gathering into Her. Girl in dress Who makes me wonder about copper getting patina from the basement - colors connected with earth, travel and compassion. As I see now - travel the most!
As Freddie Mercury used to sing "I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle" - Val-Mont shows us this icon again in XXI century... in great, original (cause natural) style.
Visually everything is perfect... contrast keeps foreground as most important - it's soothing for eyes. Steel-gray background tells unconsciously that this photo is very colorful in hidden meaning. Technically I love one thing - other bikers have been shown with no heads. It makes total acceleration of captured "move" Living in The "Ray of Light". Still - maybe it was common same as usual day but if you stop for a while like Girl from this picture - maybe You would see more details around You.
These are mine feelings condensed into one honest critique. I wish myself to see more magnificent photo captures like this one soon and in higher resolution.
