About the Book
A portfolio of images selected from the work of Louise Mann. Images from the following series are included: Forests, Garden, (see preview) Broad Horizons, Figures en Plein Air, Dogs, Moods and Interiority Complex.
Louise is an artist who uses her camera as a painter uses a brush, evoking the very essence of light in all its subtleties, from the harsh midday Australian sun, crackling and bouncing off a white sand beach to the cool enveloping green of a forest in its winter coat.
The delicacy Louise produces with a camera is astonishing; the wispy softness of her palette and painterly nature of her pictures belie the complexity of the mechanics used to create them.
This collection of work demonstrates a sophisticated evolution from her hearly intimate works with forest and flowers to her broader canvases of landscapes and the more complex issues of involving the human figure within the landscape.
As Louise continues to refine technique, so her abstractions become more confident and mysterious, striving to define and capture the very essence of light itself.
