Why a group about emptiness ?

"Emptiness" might be quite a provocative, or derisive, definition ; the focus of this group is to present images which emphasize the use of space in their composition, where space - or emptiness - is one main element of the composition.

Obviously, more often than not, this emptiness serves a purpose - you do not do an empty picture just because there is nothing to show, you show nothing either as a message in itself - see "Rhein II" from Gursky for a canonical exemple, or because this vast use of space enhances one small element in the composition, as in a couterpoint.

Any way, empty can be beautiful - at least, that's what we hope to demonstrate with this group !
As of now, the rules are quite simple - members are allowed to post up to 2 images a day to the gallery, and anyone can suggest one favorite every day. In both cases, images will be reviewed before publication, to ensure they follow the group theme.

To be accepted, images must include a good portion of .... nothing, in a meaningful way (obviously, subjectivity is involved here...)
