Where Alice had the Looking Glass, I have my camera lens. I often feel as if I see life through a lens, as, no matter where I find myself, I’m always framing the “perfect” shot in my mind. While I understand exposure, angles and framing and know the inner workings of my camera, I still find myself happily surprised at the end result of my photographs, albeit always aiming to learn from each shot.
Some of my work is layered to add texture or aging and, while some might say this is not true art, I would venture to say my original photograph will stand solidly on its own. When manipulating a photograph, my intention is not to correct or enhance it but, simply, to show the subject from a different perspective.
In the end, I could use all sorts of dramatic and artistic words to describe my work, hoping to evoke an emotion in the reader. The simple fact is, I photograph things that are pleasing to or intrigue me and hope that they are pleasing to those who view my work.
fantastic work you do! keep it up!!
Thank you very much!

Found your blog via the jellyfish at http://les-sources-du-nil.tumblr.com/. Beautiful photography. Myself, I think layering & manipulation are intrinsic to art being art – to think otherwise would be to assume that ‘Ulysses’ as we have it was a first draft, or that ‘Guernica’ wasn’t sketched countless times before brush was put to canvas. Which is just crazy thinking, so I’m with you on the different perspective thing!
Very well put Rob, thank you!
You’re not a poet you said and still, the first part of your description says exactly some things I could never express about myself, because I’m unable to do so… Your photos are great, I wish mine will be so great one day. Having a passion like this these days is very hard, but you’re doing great I see, and I hope you’ll continue doing so 🙂
Many thanks crisis!
Great images, Tracey! Cheers from Italy.
Thank you Riccardo! Cheers!
