For many years photography has been recognised as an artistic tool.
Photography is not a "simple" image of an exact instant, but each photograph tells much more than a moment.
Inside the frame there is the story of the photographer, emotions, experiences, what wants to tell.
Fine Art photography is an infinite space where a photographer can express creativity and art.
The best 3 photographers will win the following prize:
Here I investigate the concept of Identity by staging an almost extraneous figure who shows how much personal identity escapes a rational categorization. We are made up of many parts and a global meaning of our Identity cannot be done, we're multiplicity.
This still life image of Peony flowers uses empty gin bottles and glassware of different shapes and sizes to display wilting and ageing blooms of a pastel palate. This gently and joyously depicts the aftermath of a party where there is always one who wants to continue to seek the light, shine and defy the inevitable whilst the wiser members of the bunch are prepared to skulk into the shadows.
A skinny old man washing his clothes at the banks of river yamuna in Delhi and the migratory Seagulls in the background makes it a beautiful site. The chirping of the birds sounds like a symphony.
I had heard about the possibility of a rare sighting of the Aurora Borealis in Cornwall so went out on a particularly cold, clear night equipped with camera and cofee!
I couldn't actually see the aurora with the naked eye and was amazed to see what the camera was picking up!
As far as I know, this was the only startrail taken in Cornwall on that night, which managed to capture the aurora too.
I was also able to produce a timelapse using the 400 exposures taken over a 5 hour period. This can be seen on my website.
