1. Werner Mansholt likes to capture everyday scenes and display them in a humorous manner. Mansholt's photographs falls under the "street" photography genre, with most of his photos containing traces of or actual human subjects, some without their regard. All of his photos are taken in color.
2. Mansholt is described to "capture that split second moment so critical to street photography that makes the ordinary a bit extraordinary, taking the every day and seeing it differently through humorous juxtapositions or poignant connections." Mansholt's photo collections share a bizarre subject matter, as it allows viewers to look at funny scenes in an artistic and meaningful way.
3. Having the chance to research Werner Mansholt and look at his portfolio has made these weekly blog assignments more interesting. Mansholt's photographs by far are the most unique and memorable to me personally. I think taking photos of people doing things that I wouldn't consider that funny or abnormal, and having a different perspective on it makes him a great photographer and storyteller. A quote he said that really drew my inspiration with the art of photography was this: "When I am traveling, I like to stroll around and follow people in their surroundings as they go about their daily lives ; people are waiting or walking, working or eating and there is always something beautiful, something special. All the pictures tell little stories about love and desire, about loneliness and happiness, about inconsistency juxtaposed humor and not least about myself."
