I find myself being inexorably drawn to a wider range of printing techniques and , I suppose, pictorialism. It’s not that I find ‘straight printing’ uninteresting. It’s more that there is no such thing as a straight print. Most ‘natural looking’ prints have been heavily worked – (even those by the f.64 wing of photography).
We see a scene and we then try to give that scene an expression. What interests me is how we evolve this expression – an idiom.
This series of posts will examine how I attempt to give voice to some of the scenes I see.
