The foray into abstract photography has very much been a voyage of exploration and discovery. Along the way, I have learned to control the various techniques and improved my visualization skills, so that I can figure out how to get the image that I want just using the camera.
The process is a combination of taking in the landscape or environment, in which I find myself, allowing myself to become absorbed by my surroundings, and then opening my mind’s eye, so that I can see the morphed image.
These images are a series that I shot while visiting my mother in the Netherlands. It’s a view of a wall covered with variegated vine; when I saw it, I noticed that there were some hidden patterns that were trying to emerge into the visible dimension. I titled this series Cryptomorphosis 1-4, using the Greek roots for hidden and form.
I’m curious to hear what you see in these images.
