My ethereal ‘LIGHTSCAPES’ have emerged through challenging perceived rules and constraints within photography. A wonderful sense of release has enabled me to embrace the freedom of movement within - an experience of 'painting' with the camera rather than documenting a scene with emphasis on technical precision.
This single image capture was conceived on location resulting in a painterly illusion, often likened to a watercolour. My love for the natural environs is reflected in the appearance of semi translucent layers of motion, a sense of poetry without words, revealing hidden subtle colours and evoking a response of innermost feelings, rather than simply what the eye can see.
I do not set out to document the landscape, rather I wander, stumble, listen and pause, contemplating my own existence as I gradually immerse myself deeper and deeper. Forms, textures and patterns start to interplay with moments of fleeting light and through this experience an intimate dialogue develops.
WHATIPU II NEW ZEALAND
Reconnecting to my youth and my country of birth, WHATIPU II represents the emergence of a new series of works. Dark as night sands hold an allure like liquid black opal and the wild west coast wind blasts over the surface of shallow streams forming rhythmic peaks that dance wild...fierce gales sculpt the rugged cliffs... highly conscious of where I stood present, the forces of nature became instruments in an imaginary movie score accompanying my 'Choreography of Light + Movement'.
