Black and White Case Study No.2: Equality Logic maintains the conceptual precedent established with

“Black and White Case Study No.1: Ten Colour Photographs” (2000) and “Image\Sense Progress” (2001).

This second study on the black-and-white palette is formulated on the equals sign, a symbol defined by the Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde in his 1557 manual “Whetstone of Witte” in which he describes two parallel lines of even length as the symbol for equality.

Pairing the negative/positive composition of the photographic medium in conjunction with the opposing principles that govern the black-and-white palette, Asemota also utilizes early and modern photographic techniques in his proposition. The images in Case Study No.2 were first constructed in a well-known photographic software package and exported as tagged image files (TIF). Contact negatives were later created from the files from which platinum prints are made.
