The occupied mind has many thoughts to process and act upon. The stimulus of technology and the digital world moves our gaze from the simple and natural, to the over stimulating and attention seeking. We often overlook the simple beauty found around us all.
Macro photography forces us to look at the world more slowly, from a point of view that is much closer in. I use this technique to reveal the minute details in the natural world. Combining these alongside images of the land and sky reveals a new type of quiet but detailed landscape. I use digital processing techniques to emulate old-school black and white hand-printed photographs and layer these with images of subtle colour to enhance the textures.
It is my intention to engage the viewer and provide a sense of quietude.
