A series of environmental landscapes that I’ve photographed in 4x5 film with the emphasis of beauty in contrast to man’s influence. There is interruption of mankind’s involvement with the organic landscape and how it mimics, shapes interferes and competes with it.
Digital Black and White
Nik Collection has been a tremendous feat when it comes to working on digital files and with Silver effects Pro, post working my raw files have been very satisfying with side works. Some of these images have also been processed to negatives for Platinum/Palladium printing.
A small series of paper cut outs photographed to mimic conceptual scenarios inspired by world war II.
The idea that a 2-dimensional object can create the illusion of believable scale and proportion when photographed was the drive for this body of work.
The 19th Century Process
Some works I’ve created from silver gelatin and ink-jet negatives. The platinum Palladium process has been Such a rich printing experience, with such an affinity for various printing qualities and tones refinements always yield interesting results.
Acrylic on Inkjet Matte Prints
I’ve always had a visual interpretation of the world around me, and I created these works to replicate my interpretations. Using acrylic paint, I interrupt and invade the frame of the photograph. I created this eerie sensation of a fictional space or environment that is draining or merging together. The vertical lines fall around the figure dressed in black and adding paint to them, they become bizarre and unnatural like if they were a spirit or a phantom lurking within these melting environments. The mask is like an outer shell trying to retain the figure’s form, which evaporates upwards or into the shadows and sometimes, out of the image itself.
Some personal work photographed during my time home in the Cayman Islands.
