Spiral of Time
The Spiral Set were part of my Fellowship Panel. I've given them a little reboot to make them as I see them now, rather than so many years ago!
The Fellowship Panel was created around Gormley Men and my Heads. These are neither I hear you say. no, they're not. The original idea for these came about when there was and old broken Skelton in the rubbish at work, sadly headless. After asking the caretaker nicely if I could have it I put it in the boot of the car.I hate things going to waste. So, home it came, many of its parts broken. I've photographed it on several occasions by eventually it want to the tip. Processed in an early Photoshop approx 48 layers and several textures.
The spiral background are ammonites, taken in Liverpool Museum. The background colours are from textures. It took some time to create the fish but they seem to work well with the ammonite shapes and have a similar feel.
The ammonite shape also added an extra element to the set, it was added to ae Gormley Mens the third to balance the Panel. The original images where pastel and gentle but I really like to punched up colours on them.
During Lockdown 2 my Archiving has continued and will for many weeks to come. It’s slow process as I’d not realised that I’d made so many images.
In 2013 I had a project with a friend to create an image s day, I’ve skipped that year and will return after the New Year, I think I need a cold, wet, dull day to start tackling that one.
Each image I add to the Archive brings back a memory, some about taking of the image and some memories of judges and peoples comments about the prints during talks and judging. The three new images are all ones that have one well in exhibition but also have a special place in my photographic timeline.
Three new images on the Archive Page.
Each page has a link to the next new mage at the bottom of the page.The Archive will be regally up dated as it shows images and stories that haven’t been seen in a while. Do you have any memories from the images, let me know on the Contact Page or Comment below.Looking forward to hearing from you. Don’t forget to like my facebook page if you used the link from there, it just helps me know posting on Facebook about updates works. Thanks for looking.
I’m archiving my images while we’re on lockdown. During the process I thought you might like to hear the background that goes with the image. There’s colour and mono and occasionally even before and after.
Lots of happy memories on adventures with friends and family
