I am a retired scientist and life time amateur photographer and have recently embarked on a new avenue of creative expression by combining my knowledge of mathematics with my skills in digital image processing. Starting with a digital photograph I create abstract works of art by extensive manipulation of the original image. The result presents the viewer with a new reality which they are free to explore with their own imagination.
As a photographer I am instinctively drawn to the natural and urban landscape and it is here that I most readily find the material for my work. I take my inspiration from simple compositions and often apply photographic techniques, such as Selective Focusing or Intentional Camera Movement, to simplify a scene further by making irrelevant detail invisible.
My processing workflow can best be described as a journey of discovery. While experimenting with a variety of techniques I set off to reveal new shapes and textures, until I arrive at a new and exciting geometry. Further fine tuning and adjustments to tonal values and the colour palette then takes me to the final image.
