About Divine Light

 
 
  • Biography
    I photograph digitally these days and mainly monochrome, but with a long history of silver imaging I manipulate very little, only adjusting tonality to achieve the image qualities of toned, tinted and distressed silver prints would offer. Images are printed on fine art papers with feel and archival qualities similar to silver halide.
    As a young boy, I remember looking at a book of Renaissance female nudes. The mix of divine angel and sexual woman entranced me. I look back and recognise the seeds of my art practice.
    The way soft, female skin almost glows when photographed in a certain way; and the frisson when placed against textures like rocks, grass, fur or veiled with lace, diaphanous fabric and stockings echoes a boyhood dichotomy.
    It's my humble attempt to reconcile aesthetic purity with the erotic and celebrate my love of the female form.
    All prints now come corner embossed and signed/numbered on the front together with a certificate of authenticity.
