DESCRIPTIONThis composite image was constructed by digitally combining 2 photograms that were created without a camera in my garden, using Ilfobrom Galerie FB black and white photographic paper exposed and developed in natural sunlight. The final image presented here has brought together a range of floral specimens that represent what a colourful wild garden visually looks like to me.
AUTHORMy photographic interests are varied; I like to explore image interpretation by using a variety of techniques such as camera-less, film and digital media. This stems from challenging myself technically to create images that attempt to capture the depth, shape and visual impact of the proposed subject matter by presenting it on media that enables an organic type of exploration. It is very much an evolving process, encouraging me to closely examine the living and abstract world and then form images that explore the spontaneous nature that subtly exists all around us.
Many of my photographic projects originate from a desire to invite the viewer to witness some of the subtle unseen details of their environment. I am constantly striving to observe and form my own unique frame of the visual situation laid out before me using colour or black and white photographic processes, studying the subject matter and seeking out its visual interpretation beyond what is represented through the lens; shaping context to produce more ethereal type imagery.
