Statement of Intent

The editor of “Digital Photographer and
Creative Imaging Magazine” invited me to
re-create a series of well-known paintings
using photography. I was excited by the
technical challenge.

A salmon that a neighbour caught and
asked me to photograph became a
mermaid’s tail and that manipulation
was the most intriguing of my experience so far.

I was inspired by Pre Raphaelite paintings, which are romantic, emotionally evocative and illustrate the nature of femininity. I hope the emotions that drew me to these artists and their work has ended up as an integral part of my own photographic creations.
