Abstract Impressionism was first seen in New York in 1946. It expresses the artist's emotion and focus on inner energy, and sometimes contemplation, creating expressive, lyrical and thoughtful qualities. In this book I explore Abstract Impressionism through a mixture of photography, image editing apps and composite techniques. A composite photograph uses two or more separate images which have been superimposed to create a more abstract effect. Superimposing one or more photographs on top of each other is as old as photography itself, the difference now is the absolute control that working digitally affords, so it is now an elegant process.
My name is Anthony Marshall and I live in the village of Hathersage in the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire, England. I have been a fine art photographer for over thirty yeas. My work attempts to explore the visual relationship between photography and painting. My imagery is minimalist and has always been very painterly. I see the landscape in terms of texture, colour and shape it is important to me that the final composition has a strong element of design.
