In the late summer of 2005 I began to experiment with a technique to make photographs that would more clearly capture the colours, contrasts, forms, and patterns of the boreal forest landscape. I found that, at times, the details of a particular scene would distract from the overall impression that I was attempting to convey. By deliberately de-focusing the image I could obscure the finer details of the scene, leaving only the overall abstract forms. Often, photographs are judged by how sharp the finest details appear upon the closest inspection, rather than on the overall impression. I feel that the images in this collection capture an essence that I love of the boreal landscape—one that is seldom accessible in sharply focused photographs.
I offer custom-made fine art prints of the photographs in this gallery for sale. I produce the prints myself using high quality, archival inks and papers. Prints are personally signed and dated, and I offer custom-cut matting as well.
