My wife and I were visiting my brother in law on the occasion of his birthday. Her present was an offer to paint his bathroom. While they were upstairs discussing colour choices I found myself at loose ends with little to occupy myself. Both newspapers we subscribe to had been read during the ferry crossing. I had forgotten to take a book and there were few magazines of interest.
Well aware on how long a discussion of colour can take, I decided to use the situation to see what I could find in the way of photographs inside the townhouse. The result is series of images, dominated by the close-up. They are offered in the same order that they were photographed. There were a few deletions for technical faults.
One of my continuous interests since 1969 has been exaggerated colour and enhanced contrast and detail. I applied several recently discovered new concepts and manipulations to this series of images.
The world presents itself and I observe. There are times the observation becomes an obsession. Sometimes, a casual encounter. These moments become the photographs I interpret by exaggeration or simplification. I have been an exhibitor since 1969; exhibiting photographs, painting and prints through 150 exhibitions, primarily in US university, college, and community galleries in 31 American States; in BC, Alberta, Ontario and in web galleries in Canada, Australia, China, Thailand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Italy and the United States. I now publish books of current and past projects as a means of closure and completion. My images are marketed in the United States by PrintedArt.com and are also available on Amazon.com Born and educated in Alberta, I moved to the coast in 1984, and have been living in Victoria since 1986. .
