Natural Expressions is a working project exploring post-capture digital manipulation of nature images. Art is able to make the familiar unfamiliar in order to reveal a deeper reality, leading us to meanings that may not immediately be recognized with the native eye. This is especially true with impressionist and post-impressionist photography. All images begin as conventional photographs and, I hope, retain at least partially recognizable organic elements of the living world. The images are intended to convey the photographer’s digitally created impressions inspired by the original scene, thereby generating a fresh and different appreciation of the colors and textures of nature. Prints from this series are available on large aluminum panels. A book is in process.
