PROJECT CARBON is a large group of images I have created using various materials in the construction of photographic images and illustrations, that work harmoniously in the final presentation, providing the viewer with a unique artistic experience.
The photograph is composited on a tattered piece of canvas and held to a composite carbon fibre backdrop by aluminum studs. I allow the natural patina of the canvas texture to come through the image for a slight aged appearance
My passion in photography has always been vintage. In this image, ELDORADO CAMAIEU, I shot this 1950s Cadillac Eldorado as part of one of the largest private collections of in North America. I wanted to convey a colouring in the image similar to that of 1950 era television which I felt was appropriate with the photo of Barney Fife (The Andy Griffiths Show) included in the shot.
