About the Book
I began the LUMINA series in 2009 after MUSEO was published a year earlier as I intended to work primarily in colour from then on. The transition from black and white photography has not been easy, as I found that colour completely destroyed the essence of an image when it is over-represented within the frame.
The abstraction of colour to its minimum, and focusing on subtle and minimal hues was a challenge that I did not expect would work, but, over the years and after numerous editing sessions, I have come to respect its formal representation, which are displayed in this collection.
[ Note : I am offering a complimentary copy of MUSEO to the first 10 orders of LUMINA. Please email me when you have ordered. Email : firstname.lastname@example.org ]
explorenation.net equals travel photography, publishing, exhibition, photography education and workshops. Founded by Steven Lee in 2006, an award winning UK based freelance photographer dedicated to the personal advancement of photographic objectives for all enthusiasts. Together with photographer Andy Craggs, World Travel Photography Workshop programs was set up in 2009 to cater for a growing demand in hands-on instruction and guidance in basic photographic practice since the ownership of DSLRs have become affordable. We aim to combine travel and photography as an inspiration to learning and developing one's photographic eye, and in the process, achieve a personal objective, improved visual and communication skills. Steven has initiated the KL Photoawards in 2009 for Contemporary Portraiture (see www.klphotoawards.com). His personal works are mainly documentary and fineart in nature, often mixing travel photography with strong abstract visuals. Museo is his first Blurb printed book.
