My first real involvement in photography was in the production of audio visual presentations back in the 80s. It was one size fits all back then - a Pentax K1000 with a 50mm lens. Results were sufficiently encouraging and through travel I took the opportunity to explore nature in its more expressive moments. Having taken up the practice of meditation many years earlier I found photography to be a perfect complement in that observation was an integral part of both activities. Hence street photography is well represented in my portfolio.
One aspect of photography that I have always enjoyed whether in my own work or that of others is the ambiguity that is sometimes conveyed by an image. I have for some years now photographed nature in its various forms - rock structures, water and other elements that populate the natural world. There have been several individual images which by themselves have demonstrated the abstraction and ambiguity that I found so engaging. And it is with this motivation that I began this project of producing a single image comprised of many (sometimes more than 20). The end result resembled none of the individual originals but were more of a fantasy that drew on the imagination and played with the mind.
