Rethinking Texture Photography

Texture photography  is about  fabrics, shapes and colors mixing one another creating the illusion of closeness. Surfaces could become relatively smooth or incredibly hard, yet the spectator has a fine view of the materials. Nothing is hidden, particles are exposed to the light becoming  quite obvious to the spectator. Composition and depth of field would help to define the texture of an image. However,  is the photographer job to give life to those things that surround us. Textures are an important part of photography and even if the author focuses on a wide landscape, individual objects will reveal some kind of information. For instance, the dress a passer-by is wearing gives a sort of clue about its fabric, where it was made, the style, etc. Texture photography sheds light on the mundane every-day.
