I love taking photographs. I spend so much time taking photographs that it is easy just to hit the delete button when you take something that just didn’t emerge from the camera as I envisaged it.
About a year ago I got interested in transforming my photos into pieces of art. I am not trying to fool the viewer into believing I have created the perfect photograph. Far from it, I want to make pieces that I would be happy to hang on my wall. I haven’t had much time for creating in recent weeks so with a little time on my hands I spent a few hours turning the terribly dull photograph below into something a little more dramatic. I hope you like it.
Last weekend at reading festival I saw Swedish Doom Metal band Ghost. This is a band whose frontman is known only as Papa Emeritus. The band members are known only as “Nameless Ghouls”. The bands music is frequently satanic in nature. I have created the attached composite from images taken at the show, capturing some of the darkness and mystery surrounding the band.
